Now that's a great story and well suited for this forum.

Thanks for taking the time to share it with us.

Sorry, but I've already seen two people break that score about 20 some years ago.

And no, it wasn't me.

Hauxfan!

A Hall of Fame enshrinee, who shall go unnamed, once broke the first 100 in the Clay Target at Vandalia and a 64 in the second hundred. After celebrating it's sometimes tough to know which of the two targets to go after.

I missed four on a post once and ended the event with a 96,

A few years back at the Owatonna gun club, a young shooter broke 1x100 in the singles...but improved to 2x100 in the handicap.

3x200. *ouch*

Trapboy 1957 - First Grand with my dad in 1941. I got my 55 year patch in 1996 - pictured in the Grand issue of T&F that year.

Of course I missed a few years in between but I wanted the patch to irritate my shooting friend who didn't miss a Grand from 1962 to 2007, is a past president of the ATA, past chairman of the central handicap committee and Hall of Fame enshrine. He's 88 now. I should give the patch to him since it's one of the few ATA awards and honors he hasn't qualified for on his own. He and I visited at an annual shoot we both attend, just last month.

I can remember an ATA registered event in which I participated while I lived in Texas. The event was conducted at the National Gun Club in San Antonio. It was a 200 bird event. The first hundred started out slow as I missed my very first target out. With a great deal of determination, I hunkered down and started to smoke them. That is until the last station on the 4th trap - I dropped the last bird ending with a 98. (must have picked up my head) The second hundred started out well as I went 25x25 on the first station. the second station proved to be disappointing as I lost the 50th bird out of the house for 24x25. A bismal start to the third station found I missed the first target for another 24x25. The last station was more pleasing as I swept it with a 25x25 providing another 98 for the event and a grand total of 96. Needless to say I was a bit bummed out thinking "96, huh that ain't gonna win anything". To my surprise, I won the event. So recapping I missed my first target; run 98 and miss my last target on the first 100 for a 98. The second hundred I run 49, drop the 50th and 51st targets and end up with another 98. What a day that was!

Come on Lit, tell the truth, it was many more than a few years ago, it was your 1st 2 registered rounds. Doubles Boy told me.

I ran the first 50 from the 27 with my Space Gun. Then a 17 on the third trap, then a whopping 12 on the last trap. Ask me how I did it? I have no idea, but I sold the gun the next week...
