we will be shooting ata trap singles.
if both shooters miss on annie, you just keep going to the next shooter, no foul.
on doc adams you get whats called doubles on report. meaning, once you fire, when i hear the sound, i launch the next target. some would call it delayed doubles.

poor mans 5 stand is targets will come from the trap bunker OR THE skeet houses, without warning as you walk the skeet course.

ok, latest update. arky is coming with his family of 4.
ozark777 is bring his family of 4.
thats 8 shooters.
neither of them are very active on websites and have pulled the long silence. neither have answered pms or emails.
so, its never a good sign.
that leaves 7 of us actively planning.
thats an improvement over the first ftf meet where i invited 126 and 2 showed up.
but i always figure someone will kank or no show.
ozark777 from mississippi kanked last meet over rain and turned back in memphis.
so...im not holding my breath.
be advised.

its official.........we're down to 14.
arky will be shooting with his son only.
---------------
from arky,

"there will be 4 of us there but only 2 shooting. I will have to skip the dinner this time. My Wife also wanted to do some other stuff so we will be heading back to Mountain View, Ar. after the shoot.
I am sure I will return to use the ticket in the future"
Arky

EDIT: OK, whining complete. If we are shooting doubles I'll give it a try. Sure hope there's some background to help me see the targets!
Yeah, but you're firing a round with 30 pellets at it! As long as you can see the pill, you have a chance. . Besides, it's a day of shooting stuff, it can't be bad!

And unless the sky is dayglo/hunter orange for some reason, I don't think you'll have a problem seeing them.

shotgunning is the exact opposite of rifle and pistol.
in shotgunning, the target is in focus.
rifle/pistol...front site is.

i can see the clay spinning when im in hard focus.

When in the course of human events it becomes necessary ... to actually SEE something... guess what? Size matters! I'm glad y'all can determine the gender of passing mosquitoes at 100 paces. But I really can't!

My vision is something like 20:400 to 20:600. Correctable to 20:20 or so. But the sharpened image is tiny! Gonna be interesting! In the immortal words of Casey Ryback, "Guess we'll just see what we'll see!"
