I shoot a LOT more....but it's not Trap.
:biggrin2:
Since retiring, I've been able to get to my gun club 3-4 times per week and enjoy shooting a couple of flintlock rifles.
STEEP learning curve, but it's a really great feeling when it all comes together. :hand34:

Whose retired. Still working to support my habits. Fortunate, thanks to electronics, that I still can work away from home and office. Not ready for that damn rocking chair yet.

Retired last June. Seems as though I'm shooting as much as before. The real test will be this fall. I love to hunt and sometimes went hunting on the weekends when I was working Monday thru Friday. Now I can hunt during the week.

I retired in 2005 at age 55 (mandatory). Shooting and fishing more, just can't spend as much. Saving for a nice Perazzi is taking longer than I wanted. Shooting a Kemen, which is nice, but want an MX8 SBT. Maybe I'll enjoy it that much more.

no.
I shot shotgun as much as 'kim' when I was on the navy team, plus the rifle and pistol.
fyi, she didn't shoot on a rifle pistol team.
I did.
lol.

so what about now?
no way.
I moved on to managing my own place and showing others how to shoot...to be more exciting. I sold the shooting mirror decades ago.
some don't.

When not going to doctor appointments and hospital/surgeries, would like to shoot again....haven't touched a shotgun in over a year. If you and spouse have good health, say a prayer of thanks! Regards,. Ed

Yes, could not find any time to shoot while working, and joined a club prior to retirement so I could have a place to play. I am able to go to tournaments that start on Thursday or Friday without having to ask permission! Retirement is a GOOD thing. Steve

Sort of the same, but now I can consult the weather conditions on wunderground.com and decide if spending $104 on all three events is going to be worth it. A stiff headwind or 90% chance of rain can change my plans. In the "old days", you pretty much had to drive 30-90 miles and take what you got. I do shoot league once a week, rain or shine.

I guess I probably shot more before I retired, because when I was working, I NEEDED the diversion. Before :mad:. After :p

Tell me about it. I thought this was supposed to be my golden years, maybe for the doctors but I don't see it. Now I have to squeeze shooting in in-between doctors appointments and surgeries. It's worse now then when I was working. At least then I could take leave or a sick day. But now... NADA.
