    Did it have anything to do with trapshooting? If not, why was it here in the first place?

    Neil is wrong and he knows it. If it was deleted because it HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH TRAPSHOOTING then all threads that not trapshooting should be deleted. To say that and do that but leave the rest is being selective. I saw nothing wrong with the thread.

    The site in question is under the title "DAMN IT IT'S ABOUT TIME".

    As for non trapshooting threads NEIL. There are with just looking at the thread name there are 79 of them on todays listing. If you all deleted one NON TRAPSHOOTING THREAD THEN YOU HAVE TO DELETE ALL OF THEM.

    It really makes no difference if the thread,(or postings) have anything to do with trapshooting. A person can get a thread,(or post) deleted for simply asking one of our elected officials to honor his own pledge. Right Neil?

    Neil ... why not create an ATA membership only forum on the ATA site and then that forum can be all trap talk 24 hours a day just the way you say this place should be.

    You do have the power as the ATA prezidant to do that dont you?

    If this place goes to just Trapshooting, I would imagine that this site would turn into the others that have separate sections and no participation. Someone here a while ago said

    "Subject: Let's change the site's format!
    From: Big Heap

    Website Address:

    Trap Discussion Threads is not the site. There are lots of choices if you want to go to the site's title page. 7,257,234 hits indicate the SITE is fine."

    Let's go back and loose our sponsors. 7 Million hits, NOT just because we talk trap all day long but we have become a community of shooters and some non shooters that will discuss anything that comes up. 7 1/2 or 8's has worn itself out and the new issues such as the Vegas club that Neil touched on is interesting. I set the targets at my club because no one else is willing to learn the machines. We have lost alot of members because of the fact, no one wanted to step up and do it. Since I have learned how to set them and alot of info was from here, I didn't know squat about target setting, we are throwing a quality product, both in skeet and trap.
    People with computer problems would not get to enter this site if people like me would have not given them on this site and with phone calls tech support. Sure we have our smart a$$eS on here (and sometimes I'm one of them) all forums do but if we downsize this forum like everything else in America is doing we can kiss this forum goodbye.

    MIA Not always, but it's no big deal to post something different sometimes other than 8's and can I fart on the line if I'm upwind. Tron has given great info on a variety of topics as well as others. I cannot tell you the phone calls I have received on computer problems either having them or thanking me that I posted a fix to a problem many people on here was having. To narrow the field, so to speak, I think this forum would suffer and end up like Shotgun Sports that has started 5 threads since 10/01 and 13 people have responded. Think I'm making this up? Click on the link above. Two out of the 13 post was a flinch. Hard to imagine that this forum would/could drop to 5 treads a month.

    Take it for what it's worth...


    Jerbear.... As for getting up on a high horse, my hip doctor said I can't ride.

    I would think he looks like Popeye, with the big forearms from unloading those trailers.

    Ifen you ain't real careful, you will get banned. They will take you to the edge of the kingdom and give you only your trap gun and a box of crappy reloads. Then they will set you off by foot across the hot sands to wander forever in search of a trap club.

    To get to this forum I clicked on the following;

    The Trapshooters.com discussion web forum threads.
    shooting, shooting help, for sale and want adds, and MORE.

    1st, the title says trapshooters not trapshooting that would be the 1st clue that the forum is about what trap shooters want to talk about not just trap shooting.

    2nd, the key word is "MORE" maybe Neil can explain what topics fall under "more".
