Great invite Bob! Wish I could make it.

Our 4 man team placed 3rd in a 40 team fund-raising sporting clay shoot this year. These teams were "stacked" with good shooters - Our team was Father-Son Father-Son!

I shoot a self maintained average of 91% with a handicap at 24 yds. My brother is an ATA member and we both shoot a lot, but I never joined due to schedulin conflicts. I was going to join this year, but IDPA is calling my name since I don't get to shoot the departments toys anymore.

i turned in my ata and nssa cards years ago when i realized i was paying for the celebrities to maintain their addiction and fame.
im currently just an aging fun shooter holding a 96.7 combined hoa.
when i shot on the navy team, i held a 99.7 hoa and was rated AAA.

I used to shoot competitive skeet and shot a lot of registered birds. Never placed very high in a tournament and never got above A class. However, I entered the Florida State Games which was not sanctioned by the NSSA and won the bronze medal in the 55 and older class. The following year, I won the gold medal. Soon after that, I completely lost interest in shooting shotguns and concentrated on shooting centerfire rifles and reloading for them.

Well I'll be darned....

I live in NY where I have competed in Skeet, Trap and Sporting Clays since I was 12 (9 years) and now I'm a member of the Lindenwood University Shotgun Sports team in St. Charles, MO...

I've gotten as high as Class A in Sporting Clays, but because I don't shoot as much at school I have been set back to D I think. I have never competed much in Trap or Skeet but have ran 50 straight in both.

At one point we had an SCTP group of 15 kids that traveled to San Antonio, TX and Sparta, IL for the nationals...good days.

It would be a bit of a drive but a friend of mine on the team from Georgia and I might like to come down and meet y'all.

I shoot trap at a local club on Wed nights, nothing fancy, just a bunch of locals. I have learned a lot from the old timers, they have been good to me over the years. I look foreward to hanging out with them, almost as much as the shooting...lol. I started out there when i was 14 yrs old, im always good for 20/25, sometimes a little better.

I would ask Readygirl to marry me, if she weren't an 80 year old dude, playing on the internet.
LOL....Sometimes i wish i was an old man, seems like i fit in with them more than i do with people my own age. You can have meaningful conversations with the old farts, they're just more intresting. The younger poeple i know, its more like they are having a conversation with theirself, and i just happen to be standing there......I dont know.....?

Don't worry...I'm only 21 and I feel the same way that you do.
I shoot with 3 other kids my age and younger regularly...But often we bring some older guys and I always ask to be squadded with them.
