I think I know someone living in a northern state that has a southern state listed with the ATA as his residence. It may be a mistake or easier pickins. I wonder if this happens a lot? I have never thought much about it before.

Rule X A- States that you must be a bona fide resident of a state for at least 6 months to be eligible to shoot for resident trophies in that state. Residency is regulated by State laws, not the ATA. Residency does not always require physical presence in the State.

P3AT- Either you were given incorrect information from someone at the ATA or you misunderstood the information. There could have been some confusion about the 6 month requirement.

This tax crap from Wash. D.C. gets any better, I'm gonna be a resident of the Cayman's.

Anyway, many people have a "legal" and/or "paper residence" in states such as FL, TX, SD, etc. that have no state income taxes (just an outrageous sales tax). It's easy to do, legal and a good thing to do if a person's income is large enough to worry about taxation.

The ATA rulebook covers state shoots (eligibility) and it's no big deal.

HM- If Acorn registers the same person twice in the same state, could that person enter an event at his state shoot twice?
