    It would be interesting to get a true cross-section of why YOU participate on this website. Different people have different motives. Is it to get information?.....Give information?....Talk about things other than the subject of trapshooting?....convert heathens>?....Sell stuff?.....What's your main drive?Thanks for your responses to this!

    Because I love the sport. Because I have met many many new friends on here. Because I like to hear what is going one elsewhere in the trapshooting world. Because I don't mind attempting to help out a new person. Because sometimes this place is way better than TV. Because this place is addicting. Because it is a pretty good place to buy/sell stuff. Because between everyone on here, we know EVERYTHING,you can ask a question about anything and someone will know the answer or be able to point you in the right direction. Because you get all the news faster than in Trap and Field.

    TS.Com is like the little club house right there in your own home where you can talk about anything and everything without having to get cleaned up and shave ... Its passed the test of time and been copied many times by many others who have since been sent packing or just dried up and blew away like a wilted flower ... You can be here for any or no reason at all and thats alright because we are like family and that usually is but not always a good thing ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Because when I decided to take up the sport I came here looking for advice and made friends and this is an easy way to stay in touch with friends when we live on opposite sides of the country!

    I'm not sure. Every so often, I just get this urge and then it seems like the thing to do.

    Probably for the same reasons why YOU are here. By the way, tell us why you are here and your need to know.

    Same as bcnu said above. Ray.....

    I enjoy the site for the information, and the post from other trap shooters around the country. I really enjoy reading as everyone disrespects Illinois and our goffy Gov.

    We all have to keep up to date by reading the post on this site. How else will we learn about all of the unwritten ATA rules. For example: The eyeball target setting method. Check with Neil. It's there in a recent post unless it has been changed since last week. Check it yourself. Later.....
    Oh, here it is:
    Subject: Your Opinion

    From: Neil Winston

    Website Address:

    Entirely legal, just as Jerry Hauser said earlier. If the early squads wanted lower targets, they should have asked for them.

    I started on this site because I had some far-away friends that were members. When I told them that I had taken up shooting trap, they told me about ts.com and asked me to get on line so we could mess around and make each other laugh.

    Started meeting people, making friends, and the rest is as BCNU stated.

    As I have said in the past...it's a great way to spy on other trapshooters that you know. ;-)
