    OK, we know who all of the BIG dogs are, but hows about the really really little dogs? Come on little dogs, here's your chance to tell us about it. I will send the worst shooter a free barrel button (fits on your shoe) in your choice of colors (red white and blue, black, green, brown or blue).

    Well you boys can stop asking for the worst trapshooter awards. When I shoot trap, people think that I am the "Stevie Wonder of trapshooting". The way I shoot people would begin to think that the target needs to make noise to get me to shoot closer to it. I am giving courses on "Braille Trapshooting". The worst thing about me on the trap line is that my shooting is so bad that it is contagious and I bring others down to my level. The best advice I ever got was many years ago a fellow at Winter Haven (Polk County) told me I should take two weeks off , then quit shooting.

    I like reloading more than shooting. I just shoot to make emties.

    here in wisconsin i am known as the worst shooter in the ata. one time my friend luther and i were shooting an ata event at the waukesha gun club. 2 members of the board set the targets and had it set just for straight aways. i did not notice this until my friend luther told me around the 20th target. luther ran a 25, i ran a 18. i love this sport. i have been in this game since 1972. i keep all my receipts and records of everything i have spent. shells, reloading supplies, guns, clothing, gas and oil, hotel bills, entry fees. the list goes on and on. I have spent in upwards over $200,000.00 and my winnings have totaled $655.00. i love this sport, but i stink at it.

    Sandbagging to be the worst? You mean deliberately hitting targets at small shoots in order to dump a HEAP when the big money is on...LOL. Graham.

    My vote goes to Steve. Anyone that spends $200,000 to win $655.00 is a real loser. Maybe a good guy, but still a real loser...........

    My squad mates laughed so hard even their barrels went limp. Now when I go to sign up for a shoot the management pays me to stay on the porch. Seems that the excessive mirth causes a "disruption".

    That's easy..........The guys who do all the work (cut grass, load houses, maintain the broken eqipment, teach new shooters, etc.)so others can shoot, take it from those who see it week in and week out. Jack et-all

    I don't know about singles,but the first year my trapshooting friend Sean shot doubles his ATA average was 37 the following year it was 44,the next year it was a respectable more than half 67,now that at least deserves consideration for the prize.Jerry
