    Greg, go to claytargetsonline.com and do a search in Washington. There are several clubs in the greater Seattle/Tacoma/Olympia area that you can look into. You can also search the PITA website for other clubs that might not be listed on claytargets.

    A gouge is a rounded chisel, or a cavity or groove that has been scooped out. HMB

    Well I can see things haven't changed that much in the 3 years that I haven't visited this website.

    "Gouge" also means to extract or extort information...look it up in the damn dictionary before you opine.

    To the non-jackass members reading this post:

    I have Black's Wing and Clay and already know the placenames of the various clubs. I am looking for more specific intel...frequency of shooting/shoots, membership size, price of a round, leagues...are any of them member owned?

    Hello,

    I am Canadian but I will give you the info I have on Trap clubs around Seattle.

    There is the Old Skaggit gun club and the Bellingham Gun Club along with the 1 I have shot at a couple of Grand shoots is Evergreen Sportsman's Club with 36 Traps and a 40 yd. Trap and has over 2000 members....I liked shooting there.

    Bob Dodd or Terry Dienner or Dane Widen could steer you straight.

    I didn't invent "The List" you will have to ask the guy that put it together.

    But I will take credit for helping to push those three over the edge.

    And bill, I don't hate any of you guys on that list. I always thought you all were pretty amusing. How could anyone "hate" something or someone that makes them laugh?

    Don't forget Gig Harbor out of Tacoma and over the "Narrows Bridge." Supposed to be very friendly and a lot of fun but I've never attended. Understand, gbt2, western Washington and Oregon are in the middle of PITA land and ATA birds are harder to find....Bob Dodd

    Dear GBT:

    I looked <i>gouge</i> up in <a>http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/gouge</a>
    and could not find your definition.

    I am sure it is some other dictionary, but I think, in all fairness, you would have to agree that the use of this word as you used it-is a <i>rara avis</i>.

    I wonder if the meaning comes from the fact that <i>scoop, or to scoop</i> is one of the definitions of gouge. Thus what is the scoop on...? The word scoop as the following entry in its definition:

    Informal. news, information, or details, esp. as obtained from experience or an immediate source: What's the scoop on working this machine?

    The thought of NOT paying that guy never entered my mind.

    Of course at the time I didn't think I would have to. I hope he sent it to the DNC in my name. Like he said he was going to do. That way he didn't get any enjoyment out of it.

    I bought a beer that night for the 9 guys that were standing around at the end of the league shoot. Told them it was on John McCain, me, and ziggy. They wanted to know which member of their "gun club" voted for obama. They thought I was jerking them around, making it up.

    They said they wanted to meet this guy.

    I told them.

    ght2, Trying hard not to be a jackass but a lover of language the term gouge, as you used it, is not used much in new world english. In fact I have never seen it but understood your meaning by it's use in context.

    The dictionary I use has no version of how you use it, yet I can see the reasons that it could be used as such. Is it possibly an old world term? Welsh, Irish or Scots, perhaps?

    gbt2, since the Admiral mentions what I decided to avoid, I too looked up gouge in an on-line and a published dictionary and can not find any suggestion that gouge could be used as you suggest; with the closest being, "an act of extortion; swindle." Although the published dictionary did carry it further to include being "gouged or over charged/swindled."

    The reason I'm willing to step into the debate is that your remarks aimed at Ajax were uncalled for and you should know or will learn that Ajax is one of the reliable, giving, and informational contributors to this forum whether you found your definition and his fun response, including his saying he was "Not trying to be a smart ass," inapproprirate. I can guarantee Ajax meant no insult to you while giving you the name of several clubs you may want to look into.....breakemall anyway.....Bob Dodd

    I have never heard it used this way myself but it seems appropriate for a Navy man.

    [edit] U.S. Navy Slang
    In U.S. Navy jargon, gouge is the essential piece of information; the heart of the matter; or outstanding test-preparation material (such as an old test copy). A person who is tired of hearing all the extraneous information surrounding a problem might exclaim "Just give me the gouge!"

    Originated at the U.S. Naval Academy and introduced from there into the wider navy, where it sees less frequent usage.
