Hi all!!! I've been lurking out here as an observer for some weeks now soaking up all the news and opinions on this site. I thought it was time I came out of the shadows and introduced myself. I live in a small town in South Carolina and have just recently returned to trapshooting after a 20 year hiatus.I really enjoy this site and have garnered a great deal of useful information here already. Oh, BTW, I'll probably get chided occasionally for my spelling, since that seems to be a common theme of late. I can spell quite well, but am not a very good typist---dyslexic fingers! LOL!! Anyway,looking forward to sharing my experiences on the range and hearing about yours.We shoot most every Sunday afternoon at our local trap/skeet range.If you live near Charlotte NC, come on down sometime and burn some powder with us.

Welcome! If your skin is thick, a tremendous amount of good info is at your fingertips. And some bad info, too (but you knew that). There are a lot of long-time-layoff shooters returning to the game any given year...I'm sure you'll fit in fine.


For match-making and romantic advice, Dial 1.

For Gun Blow-ups, Dial 2.

Feminine hygiene products & advice, Dial 3.

...all other general bullshit, please hold the line and you will be served immediately like drinking out of a fire hydrant.

Welcome aboard, Turtle. Sorry my Hawkeys had to show up your Gamecocks, but maybe next year will be different for you.

Jump in and enjoy this site. That's what it's all about.

Welcome to the site. If you ever need advice on how to slap these guys around, come to me. My advice, however, requires a small fee. Trapshooting costs a lot of money, you know...

Thanks, EE, I didn't know that, being a Northern Yankee kind of guy. I've never had the pleasure to visit your state. As old as I am, I doubt I ever make it, but it would be nice to do so.

Same in Iowa about the colleges.

We have the University of Iowa and then we have Moo U......I mean Iowa State.

The former is a great college with great teams and the latter is.......well, it's Moo U......lol lol Where the cheerleaders graze........lol lol

Thanks for all the messages. I am in fact a Moo-U graduate-- Clemson University class of '77 --and a born and bred Tiger fan. In regard to our shooting club, we have a small two-field trap/skeet range located on Hwy 207 just north of my hometown of Pageland, SC. We are about 50 miles south of Charlotte NC just over the SC stateline. The range is maintained by the local chapter of Wildlife Action, Inc. We shoot almost every Sunday afternoon, weather permitting. Never know who will show up. It rained a bit this past Sunday and I was the only person there. Set up the canterbury voicecalls, put some birds in the trap house and shot all afternoon all by my lonesome self. Still had fun though, and tweeked up my Beretta to adjust the POI a bit as well.

Welcome aboard. Get yourself schooled in the pros and cons of 7 1/2 and 8 shot, 1 1/8, 1, 7/8, and 3/4 oz loads, AAHS vs old style AA and Rem hulls, and Spolar loaders vs everything else. And remember, K-80's always blow up! LOL.

Seriously, welcome.
