Mike,

There was a thread not too long ago collecting data on how many here were ATA members... that may be a starting point.

One post has 5,600 views which may translate to shooters. However no doubt there are multiple conversational hits etc. The post had to do with PFS stocks.

Mike: I think if you could get them, the numbers would be surprisingly low but as compared to what. 44 is not the number as you and I know that many on here without working at it.

If I had to bet I would say that over 50% were not "trapshooters". They are on here because no other shooting thread enjoys this popularity. Some are trying to hijack the site for their particular sport i.e. sporting, skeet, bunker, rifle etc. Some are on just to sell items, look at the idiot who listed 10 or 15 items individually. More deals gone bad than ever before.

As the saying goes "It isn't like it use to be in the good old days". To many bullshit artists.

The problem with nailing this one down is that almost all of us consider ourselves "trapshooters" or "shooters", but also believe that most of the other posters are somehow unworthy, ergo Don's post above.

APrice, good statement albeit a "Better than thou" attitude. I guess what would be appropriate is a definition of a trapshooter. Is it someone like myself that once shot a lot a trap, and now only shoots occasionally, or is it someone like Pat Ireland that seems to compete quite a bit. My idea is if you enjoy the game and just shoot occasionally or even had to give up the sport because of health. wealth, or other reasons, it doesn't matter. What we all seem to share is the sport itself. Bulge.

I'm not registered but when I can get back in the grove with my shooting because I have been away from it for many years I'll register. I am getting closer each timt I am able to shoot. Things are looking better with my shooting. I have found the grove and I'll loose it now and then because of my health situation. When It gets more consistant I'll dive right in again. But besides my health kind of holding me back money is a little tight for us right now. When it gets loose and my health permits as I said I'll dive right in. I consider myself as a trapshooter.

The question is How many shooters does TS.COM have???? First you must define shooters. Almost all that come here are shooters, not necessarily a Trapshooter but a shooter of some kind.

Every time I am working a shoot on the classification or squadding desk. There are always comments on one thread or another on this site. They aren't commenting on line they all have an opinion at the shoots.

So now I will ask when we say how many shooters do we "have" how is that meant actively contributing or just here getting information and news they can't get anywhere else????

I think there are many more than anyone realizes there are.
