Very nice. Great thing to do for your trap range. Good for you.
Exactly my thoughts in terms of safety and encouraging an environment of cautious relaxation. IE having fun while being safe which can be difficult for new shootersThat's wonderful. I know I hate to watch the fumbling around with shell boxes on the ground. People leaning out past the firing line, poor/no muzzle control while digging in a box. You did good for the club, and firearm safety in general. If they criticize the quality of your workmanship, tell 'em they need to get their head in the game and focus on their targets... or step up and do better.
Great idea and good looking as well. I understand what another said about being in the way or placeing to the side or behind. At least with this option, you can do either.Nice Job. They may not tell you personally, but I’m sure many people will appreciate your work, for years to come. Our club also sets buckets at each station for empties. Saves a lot of time picking up empty hulls.
I'm thinking Wisconsin, although many clubs everywhere at one time used to be like that.Back in the early 80's, we used to set our beer on the stands our club had. I only found out they were for shells when a new shooter set his box on one.
Wait... what? I thought those bins were just there for looks! Now, I know for a fact (cuz I've watched people) that if you wanna be cool, you purposely let the hulls fly behind you or throw them on the ground next to the container. If confronted about same: LIE! Say it breaks your soft eye and mental focus to worry about the hulls.Our club also sets buckets at each station for empties. Saves a lot of time picking up empty hulls.
Minnesota, actually. Castle Greens Trap Club, Oakdale, MN. Not there anymore, unfortunately.I'm thinking Wisconsin, although many clubs everywhere at one time used to be like that.
Used to shoot trap in the Winter during the Blizzard league, Mn. vs. Wi. Top guns winning at clubs on the Mn. side of the river get meat trays. Wi. side is usually a bottle of booze. Caused a heck of a problem when my youngest son was high gun at Gunslick Trap Club in Holmen, Wi. one weekend and the prize was a huge bottle of Southern Comfort. He was 14, they ended up giving it to me.
Woods and Meadows in Warrens, Wi. has a large sign at the entrance to the SC range that says absolutely no alcohol before or during shooting. Below it is a large sheet of plywood spray painted which says That Includes Beer. When I asked about it was told that in Wi. some don't consider beer as alcohol it is more a food group and it was added after the original sign went up for clarification.
