    What is the worst trophy that you have ever gotten at a shoot? At a recent shoot I was given a flowered vase for a trophy. I would think that a trophy is something that is supposed to remind you of your win and something that you could be proud of.

    Well, I hope the vase was nice, something for the wife I suspect. At least she gets something for once. My worst.... In Oklahoma, at a gun club I will not name. I won the short handicap, about 45 people were in the class, wind blowing like a hurricane and I shot in the low 90's. I received a wally-mart flash light. Even had the sticker still on it. $2.54. I had to buy my own batteries though... bummer. Buying my own batteries kinda took the joy out of it.

    I can understand wanting a trophy for your wins early in your shooting years. I no longer take them and have a box full in the attic and several belt buckles in a drawer. If you need them, send me a message.

    Also, at the club that gave baseball caps, they also give sea shells glued to a 2X4. Not worth taking home. I would be embarressed to try to give this crap to anyone, let alone call it a trophy.

    2 Years ago at my state shoot. I tied for A Class HAA. I shot 30 shells to win a box of 25 shells for the prize. It was my bad because I was still new to shooting and didn't know I needed to look at the trophys before I wasted the 3 hr's waiting to shoot off.

    How about two boxes of someone elses reloads. I was able to salvage the shot and primers.

    I won a handicap event at a club and the trophy was a little paper back book with about 50 pages titled "how to shoot handicap" with a price tag on it with 3.29 and there were about 60 shooters in the event. The tropy was immediately dumped in the trash can The club was a club in VA.But since then I understand they have improved the trophy list.

    Big Dave - At this point that's the winner in my book.

    My all time favorite is the 1/2 yard punches and no trophy you get when you're first starting out. We've all been there.

    I won a stuffed Pheasant for HOA that must have been stuffed at home. A week later I had to throw it away because it was rotting. Allen

    Good thread. A spot light from Casa Grande, Az. Four goblets from the Dixie Grand in Odessa, Fla. They were too big and fragil for the luggage. Hullchucker

    For my 1st 100 straight in doubles I won 2 whole boxes of estates for doubles champ, don't know what the class winners received. At an other shoot I was handicap champ and got nothing but a punch, shoot management decided to give all the trophies to the low scores. that club no longer throws registered targets.

    Same as Big Dave:

    Two boxes of someone elses reloads. I left them right there on the counter did not want to damage my gun.

    When you go to a shoot look at the award for winning the shoot (HOA). Add up your entry fees and cost of ammo and see if the award is less or greater than your expenses. If it is less I think you should ask yourself, what am I doing here? HMB

    A few years ago I was Junior Handicap Champion on Sunday at my home state. I got a little napkin holder. Not too many juniors use napkin holders. O well
