    I'm considering heading to the Silver Dollar in March. From years past, which has the most attendance, Southern Grand or Florida State Shoot. Butch from PA

    If you're looking to hob-nob with the greatest shooters in the game, the largest attendance, the best trophys, most money and the worst parking-go to the Grand. If you're looking for the best chance of good weather-go to the state shoot. If moneys no object go to both!!

    I've been there for the Southern Grand 2 years ago. Was just wondering if the state shoot was much difference.

    Go to www.rjstuart.com

    Look at the shoot results. Not sure if they show attendance totals, but they do show number of shooters in each event for most events. You can compare the two. Looking at 2010, it appears the FL State Shoot had more shooters than the Southern Grand. Check it out for yourself.

    The S Grand is the bigger event and more venders at the grand also. Most of the Big Dogs are at the Grand a great place to watch them shoot the weather can get cold the wind can blow bring everything from rain gear, shorts and tee shirts to a snow suit

    Dude, Southern Grand is by far the best!!! Most competitive, best awards, best shooters, most money and good shopping for toys!!!! What more can you ask for?

    Whoops, tanda1 is right. I was comparing the Dixie Grand, not the Southern Grand. I was in a hurry this morning, so I didn't have time to double check. Gave the right link and method to check, though.

    Just got plane reservations, so we'll be there on the 9th. I know there have been posts about hotels in the area, but I'm looking for someplace near shopping areas/malls. Got to have something for Lucy to do while I'm shooting. Butch from Pgh

    Let's pick a time on Saturday for all the trapshooters.com folks to get together. Possibly between the 100's on the club side....
