I was in Amarillo also, and Jimmy is right. It was a great day to be out at the gun club and great to see Jimmy. Nice turnout, good shooters, and from what I could tell a well run shoot. It's that time of year . . .
I, for one, and there are probably many others, have family & work obligations that prevent me from hanging around the club all day. Wish I could and maybe when & if I make it to retirement, I can experience the pleasure of hanging out at the club. Until then I'll just dream about it.
Hitapair , your right on the money . I prefer sportingclays as you have fun and socialize as you go , tried shooting the local trap league but I can't stand around in the cold for 2 and a half hours to shoot 50 targets . Get er done and have fun Jay
There were 4 young men who came in and didn't know squat about trapshooting (like I know any more than squat but that's besides the point) It wasn't until Recurvyarcher took one under her wing that they moved at all (and believe me, it took 40 minutes for them to shoot 5 shots and move on) Usually there is someone from the club to help newbies, but that day the young man who was there looked almost as lost as these guys were. Was nice to see new people but we didn't get a whole lot of shooting done while they were there.
