    I got out of trap shooting several years ago . Sold all my trap guns and my Mec 9000G . I would like to get back into trap . Here is my concern . With the current political climate I feel that once Health Care reform is finished the Democrats will then turn their attention to gun owners . Example, having the EPA ban all lead . Could not afford to shoot then . Huge taxes on powder and primers . They seem to have the votes and at this time seems like they cannot be stopped . So If I buy a new shotgun how long will I be allowed by my masters in D.C. to shoot trap . I would really like to here a positive spin
    on this by someone . I never thought they would pass Health Care ,but I think at this point they can do what they damm well please !

    Get a good used BT-99 and a Bob Allen vest. Shoot throw away shells like Kemen or Gun Club. You are back in the game for under a grand. If Big Brother comes for us you can always use the BT as a club.

    Our only recourse is to vote out ALL incumbents at the next two elections and if they still don't do what their constituants want, then get rid of them too.

    We are too complacent. ALL incumbants must go to give notice that "WE ARE FED UP WITH BIG GOVT." Odie

    You can't control any aspect of what our gov't does except vote or donate to other candidates.Live ur life,do as u please and don't worry about things u can't control--Obama's a one shot wonder anyhow--turn him off when he comes on tv and go load some shells.

    Obama has a country that is still an economic disaster area, a global economy that's no better off, wars to resolve and a bucket full of countries who still hate us. Somehow I don't think we will be a priority during his administration.

    Here's a thought, stop healthcare now and the problem you described will be taken care of. Call, it can't hurt!

    What if the founding fathers thought your way?

    Buy it, enjoy it, and don't have a fatalist attitude.
