    During a registered shoot a few weeks ago, one of the squad-mates needed to take a restroom break before starting the 3rd bank of singles. I didn't think anything of it, but they did it again during handicap (this time the husband went also).

    There wasn't any lag time in having to wait for the squad ahead of us to finish, so we ended up delaying things a bit.

    This is the 1st time I've ran into this...seems that they should have gone either before or after shooting, not during?

    >> You must be a young man

    That's what I was thinking :)

    I haven't gotten a good night's sleep in 5 years.

    It was a male and female? maybe it wasnt the restroom they were going after-maybe they were going after each other and couldnt wait till the end of the shoot?

    TWO & YSR....you are correct! I would tend to think that at a smaller shoot this would probably be OK...but would be more difficult at a larger one like the Grand? Seems like there is a fine line w/ having to 'go' and disrupting the shoot?

    I had a nice old guy suggest that we install a facility between each trap field. That is one of the not so kind things about the aging process. I would hope that we aren't so caught up in this game that we cannot spare a few minutes for nature breaks. A little understanding and consideration please.

    When ya gotta go, ya gotta go. I've seen more than one shooter hand his gun over and scoot to toot.

    I'm a puker, usually between 50's. Get myself so tied up inside that it's either run for the bathroom or yack on the line, especially during big shoots. People have been great about it and I always try to hurry!

    With the average age of registered trapshooters being 51, how many are on blood pressure medicine? A would imagine quite a few. The most common are diuretics (water pills). Wayne

    Look up BPH. Then you will understand re. men. For women, I suppose, the problem, if woman not pregnant, is gravity.

    Mr.Clark, you said; "Seems like there is a fine line w/ having to 'go' and disrupting the shoot?"

    Young man, you have no idea of what kinds of disruptions a shoot might entail if your "fine line" was used!! :) Young KID neys! Hap

    Years ago, I knew a Remington rep who had never shot registered targets. His boss had him sign up for a trapshoot, and after the first 25 targets, he did like he always had been doing in practice, headed for the clubhouse to have a soda, and take a little break. He said luckily his squad mates just laughed after they tracked him down.

    I'm a skeet shooter so I have no trouble going behind the house. I guess it's a bit more of a problem for trapshooters, especially females.

    Pilot's relief tube down the leg; step off into the grass and do what you gotta do, available in mods for both genders because both genders are pilots.

    Real men just tie it in a knot before shoots.

    I don't mind waiting in a emergency but then the nervous pee before going out helps a lot. My usual squads average age is 70 + but we seldom stop between traps. Post-2
