    There are several things that come to mind when going to any given shoot, but these are a few that really bother me:

    1. Left handed shooters shooting to my right.

    2. People that talk at shoots, especially while squaded.

    3. People that shoot autos without a catcher/deflector.

    4. People that complain about targets.

    5. People that cuss and carry on like idiots when they miss.

    6. People that bring dogs to shoots that don't behave.

    People who rag on the trap help when they miss a target. Blame transfer so to speak.

    I agree!

    Dogs and cats should be left at home!

    Dogs are for hunting with and

    Cats make great coyote bait, if they can't catch mice!!

    Focus on the clays, and most of the stuff above goes away.

    Fat people who haul their golf carts to the shoot like Bikers going to Sturgis...so their hick offspring can joyride in them all week.


    I'm all for geniunely elderly people with health issues riding in them (70+ with pacemakers, etc.), but the Youth division of the Ugly Americans Society could use some exercise.

    Shooters who load and close their gun right after they shoot instead of waiting to do it when it's their turn.

    A shooter that takes FOREVER to call for a bird. My boys were on a squad in a recent shoot and there was a kid who took between 10 and 15 seconds to call for a bird after mounting the gun.

    People who can't let Vandalia be a wonderful distant memory and shoot at what we have instead of badmouthing a facility alot of them have never been to.---Matt

    What grinds my gears...?

    People whose only reason for existing is to whine, whimper and complain about everything and anything that doesn't perfectly suit them as like they're trying to convince the world that the whole event should have been organized and run exclusively to their complete satisfaction and for their individual benefit!

    Take a deep breath, suck it up and deal with it, Sparky!
