    That question comes up all the time in threads.

    Why are so many of the posts made on here made by skeet shooters.

    The answer seems obvious.

    Skeet shooters are more likely to be able to read and write than trap shooters?

    Regards from Iowa

    Because skeet and trap shooters have a lot more in common than we have differences.

    Maybe, just maybe, many shooters enjoy shooting more than just trap targets?

    WOW, Gene I thought that was going to cause a bigger ripple than it did. I agree with several contributors but mostly with the Old Cowboy. Times have changed some over the last 40 years but not as much as in the last 10. I have seen a diversification of the shooting sports. One may have a favorite but also participates in others.

    Thats easy. They can't get along with each other and or thenselves. Besides, they know we are the men of shooting while skeeters are not.

    Why do some people here look down on other shooter sports? We are all in this together,not only from a government regulation standpoint but an enjoyment factor. And an ecomonic factor. Do you people suppose that the supporters of this site listed at the header would turn away a skeet shooter wanting to buy their products. I am certain they would be welcomed with open arms. Contrarty to your beliefs & as much as it does hurt you,people that shoot skeet & participate in this site make it a much better site. And why aren't those wonderful,noble skeet trasher people down on the sporting clay people? I mean,it can't even began to compare to the wonderful sport of---PULLBANG. So let's all trash them,too. Tom.

    RunGunIPSC, you haven't been around skeet shooters much have you? There are a good number of skeeters who have a good sense of humor BUT there are enough of them who are nothing but rude AH's. Same with trap I will add. I know enough skeet shooters who I do give alot of crap to and they give it right back. All in fun and we all know it. Some how ever you don't joke with at all.

    We are all like a fighting family. We will fight each other tooth and nail. But if an outsider comes in, well now that was a very bad mistake made by them because now they have to deal with all of us.

    B/c watching trapshooters argue is like watching a car crash, you know you shouldn't, but you just can't help yourself :)

    Because skeet shooters are just shooting trap sideways, for the most part. They can't help it that the trap houses were installed in the wrong place. They just do the best with what they've got. And some of them do it pretty good too, especially those .410 guys....
