    Yes but all scor3es above average and you are considered a sandbagger. All scores below seem to go unnoticed.

    This amazes me do you people think this is something new? I have news for you it not and just as an example take a look at this.

    Check out the Date and then look at the B, C class scores compared to the A, AA scores and that is 65 years ago before I was born. Personally I think if everyone spent as much time working on their scores as they do trying to find something wrong with other scores. Then just maybe their scores would look as good as those that they find problems with.

    In 1945 he was an industry shooter. Qualifications for industry is as follows

    This is from the 1996 ATA rulebook also interesting to note that there also no AAA class in the 96 rulebook. There is however AAA class in the 2001 rulebook as for the years in between I have a gap. That means I have no rulebooks for those five years.

    Industry shooters were considered the Pro class. even if they weren't technically pros. BTW there is more to that rule but I believe everyone should get the idea from what is posted.

    Tell me is that what you got from this statement,

    Check out the Date and then look at the B, C class scores compared to the A, AA scores and that is 65 years ago before I was born.

    It seems to me that the words scores would kind of negate the confusion about the pro score I simple said that what you said was not the case at the time.

    Tell me do you think I made it up or are you just being obtuse to see if you can pi** me off?

    "and that is 65 years ago before I was born."

    1945 + 65 = 2010.

    Dang, do you have any pictures of you trapshooting?

    But the big question is .... did they have a special class for whiners in 1945 or did they all have a pair back then?

    .

    The Bible and history books tell us there were whiners around even long ago.

    Whining trap shooters may not have made the editor's cut.

    "It was before you were born .... not 65 years prior to your birth."

    You better read that again I never said 65 years prior to my birth!!!!!

    "First you say it is the same as it was in 1945 .....

    Now you say things have changed .....

    My poor little brain can only handle so much ..............."

    Two points using the last two quotes it appear you also have a reading comprehension problem.

    Also if I were giving the answers you are giving I wouldn't be drawing attention to the little size of my brain.

    I overheard one shooter ask another the other day "Do you think Hammer will start another dumb thread to go with the rest???"
