    I'm throwing my hat in the ring. I'm a member of the 100-300 club (100 straight targets 300 pounds on the scale).

    He said he was a slow starter. Let's see if he clarifies.

    I'm guessing he meant trap, not tap.

    Back when I ran a hundred I may have been as light as 340 or I could have been 380.

    In that time frame I was chatting with this gentleman named Leo in line to buy food at Tucson Trap when someone said" hey Leo move on up we are all hungry here!" The laughs really started when I leaned out from behind Leo and asked "who do you want me to step on?"

    So since Leo blocked me from view and I am not small!

    I vote the big gentleman, Leo H. III

    He doesn't pack the wieght but there is a fire plug of a shooter that is as good as Leo ............

    I knew some truly great bear drinkers as a wee lad, somehow they never quite got to the tap on the next keg before they where rolled away!

    I have 2 100 straights, I may be at a slight disadvantage in the belly department. But only slight! At 6 5 and averaging 350 since I started shooting Trap, I resemble the remark about big belly.

    All that said Leo made me seem small.

    A nicer man you well never meet!

    But when you start lining up bellies let me know!

    I am in

    2-3 years ago, someone posted a thread with a picture of an annual shoot at their club with maybe 30 shooters lined up shoulder to shoulder on the 27 yard line. all shooters had a huge belly. Would be fun to see that photo again.
