    Just heard the term"protected shoot", could some one tell me what it means & why the ATA doesn't allow them?

    Thanx-Phil Berkowitz

    phil, I think they must be talking about games. In Tx. we call them buddy shoots, Your buddy shoots and if he misses You get a chance to breaK THE TARGET and thus protect him from a miss. therefore the protection moniker

    It's "protection", not "protected".

    No a protected shoot is when there are no other ATA shoots allowed within a certain distance from another shoot. I can't recall what the distance was, it might have been 75-100 miles.

    Not positive but I think texaszephyr has it right, we call them a brother-in-law lots of fun. Five-- two man teams--10 shots per man--alternating 1st, & 2nd shooter--each is the others B-I-L, don't count shells just targets--shooting at your B-I-Ls broken target is also a lost bird--high team wins a prize.lots of ho
    oting & poking fun when you miss or double shoot. Love those games-- Ross Puls

    Edit-- After reading the Florida chain post I see where I was mistaken. As you can deduce I'm more of a games shooter than registered ATA. Sorry --Ross
