I have shot many years in the games and as a hobby just going to the club and shooting practice rounds with the guys who do shoot ATA all the time but I have never joined the ATA and never shot registered targets. I even have my own atlas trap machine and put on my own pot shoots. I recently bought a new XT combo and one of the old timers has talked me in to joining the ATA and my first shoot is this weekend. I have to admit I'm a little excited. We will see what happens.
