    I just got my Dec. Trap and Field and was looking at the Honor Roll and the Award for AA-27-AA.


    What percentage of shooters will break 100 straight. (singles, handicap, doubles)

    What percentage of shooters will reach the 27 yard line.

    What percentage of shooters will make it to AA-27-AA.

    Thank you in advance,


    Duke

    Just my experience...when you hear complaining about "too many 100 straights," it's almost always coming from someone who DIDN'T shoot one, and are pist because someone ELSE did and took THEIR money.

    Denile is a river in Egypt, junior...once you shoot your first 25 straight, then you can come pontificate.

    Jerry,

    You do know that you are communicating with an anal orifice. The only thing you're going to get is hot air that stinks.

    I shot at a club with fast targets,,,they claim its set at 60mph. After watching a round and then missing my 3 shot I felt it was not much different. I shot a 23 24 25. Now their extreme angles where another story. Not ATA. So can the average shooter really tell the difference between a 45mph target and a 60mph? I always just shoot my best, I also shoot a bit of sporting so different speeds/ presentations im exspecting. SHUT UP AND SHOOT. As far as trap is concerned get it in range of the height and max angles and let them fly. I just do not think most people could tell you "yup that ones going over 50mph....blah blah blah.

    This just confirms why I don't post very often!

    Also confirms why you look at the new counters and see 10x the people looking as posting.

    Just read an article in Shotgun Sports magazine that stated only 10% of trap handicap shooters make it to the 27 yard line.

    maclellan,

    Believe me, if you got some 60mph targets, you would know it!

    POD is like a Clinton (either one will do)...they'll never respond "directly to a direct question".

    maclellan1911- I only shoot practice targets to try and improve my ATA shooting. Shooting at fast and wide targets is not a good way to improve shooting ATA targets.

    I do not shoot this club often, but when they come up to our house they always comment on how slow our targets are. I just do not think the "average shooter would be able to tell the difference. Maybe I miss read the post here, I am still chasing my 100 straight, got my 25s 50s 75s and my best ATA score to date is a 96. My average is not that good. I have seen a lot of crying about target settings etc ect. For me as long is it doesnt look like wobble trap I shoot what comes out. What where the settings before the soft targets came into play.

    Can someone please tell me how to throw a 60-mph target if the target is of legal height and distance?

    I have found, through what little experience I have, it takes approximately 1-mph per yard thrown. Of course this assumes that the target is of legal height. And yes, I am sure it does, makes a small difference, if that same target is thrown just a few feet above sea level or at a Denver CO gun club.

    But come on now, we ARE talking about legal targets, aren't we?

    Mac, We set some 60 mph targets once just fooling around. Set the height at 9 ft, Looked like they were still climbing at the 50 yd stake.
