    Last week I went to the Central Zone Shoot here in NY and shot 16's did ok for me and then shot the Handicap and broke a 97 good enough for a win and my very first punch 1 yard :)).

    After that I was so puffed up that on Sunday the next week I went to my clubs Mid-State thinking I'm looking for my first 100 in handicaps and walked off with a 79 ????? THUD to the ground..

    I'm thinking walking back to the clubhouse wtf just happened here ?? How the hell is that possible ???? How do you shoot a 97 one week then from 1 yard further back a 79 sheesh.


    You have to love this sport :)

    Everytime you think your getting good, the Trap Gods will turn their back on you. In the future try to maintain a good relationship with them.........

    Even the best home run hitter strikes out a lot.

    As Jerry Reed said, when you are hot, you are hot and when you are not, you are not.

    Jerry Reed only wishes he possessed the proper English quoted by Ed our school_teacher. I guess you can't take the teacher out of the trap shooter.

    I think it was probably more like: When ya hot, ya hot; n when ya not, ya not. I wouldn't be surprised if our buddy Jerry got kicked out of third grade for shaving....

    I shot a 97 singles followed by a 68 hcp one day at Elysburg last year. The emotional swing hurt so bad I dreaded the next day's events.

    I haven't had a real bad day shooting trap lately but was shooting skeet and have almost 24 average with a 410. Mine is full choke in both barrels and had been feeling good about my shooting and then last weekend I shot a 15, yea that's right a 15. I haven't shot that bad in longer than I can remember. One of the guys I was shooting with shot a 99, can you imagine how I felt. But, I'll be back. The same day I shot a 19 while shooting wobble scrap. I went from 1 to 7 and back to one and back to 7. Just no figuring sometimes. Jackie B.

    90 percent of trapshooting is 10 percent mental ;}
