    right. Shooting at my club (Albuquerque Trap Club)yesterday, I started with a 22 which irked me a bit. Second round was a 25 which was obviously better. Third round was another 25, great. Fourth round was another 25. Looking good! My previous best was 63 straight. This was my first 75 straight. One box o' BB's left. My fifth was a clone of the second, third and fourth... another 25 for my first 100! Not too shabby given the fact that I picked up a shotgun for the first time two years ago. I spent the rest of the day with a big grin on my face. I'll try to extend the run at Belen on Tuesday.

    All,

    My apologies for the offensive word which I have edited out.

    Mea Culpa,

    Wonderful!!! Happy for you. I'm 67 and started shooting again two years ago after a 30-year lay-off. I'm getting better and better results. Hoping I can do 100 again. I know I can......

    Zardozforty,
    I'm assuming that Mr. Robinson is a professional instructor. Three months into my start in trapshooting Harlan Campbell came to ATC. I took his two day class which was outstanding. Full eight hour plus days with only five students per class. Well worth the money! In this instance I didn't have to try and break bad habits and relearn what Harlan was teaching. I'm certain taking the class early on paid huge dividends in my shooting. If Harlan ever comes near Albuquerque again I'll be in a class.
