    You get 500 birds to get used to a new gun, then it's on you, lol.

    I shot a round of trap with a BT100. I really liked it. My dad shot a bt99 for a few years because he didnt want to put a release in his 4e.
    Best wishes for the delayed season.
    We're pretty disappointed that the HS team was cancelled for the season. My son is a senior this year. He should have been a contender. It kinda stinks to have your senior year cancelled.
    I drove past my home club yesterday in my planting tractor.thats about as close as I have been to shooting trap since last summer.

    First night of league. Conditions miserable. Shooting east/southeast, winds out of east from 10-20 mph. 20 @ 16, 20 @ 24. I'm on some new arthritis meds so that's my excuse. Son #1 got me again. Team was 2nd so I guess lots did worse. One member shot 32 and he's a 90% shooter.

    We had our first night, practice only, last night. Perfect evening, just a little muggy. By the end of the evening I was shooting the Ljutic well, best was a 24, and the one I 'lost' was due to a reload that went 'ploop'. First one I've had since I tried since trying to reload Eclipse hulls using WAA-12 wads back in '81. It was only a practice, so I didn't insist on an alabi. I won an Annie, and got down to a shot-off on two more. That Handicap Limited Edition lives up to it's name, still crushes them well past the 27. :cool:

    Shot practice this a.m. tried out an 1100 trap and a 74 BT99 that have been sitting in the vault. I'm on Prednisone for gout(long story, rheumatologist prescribed something that screwed up my chemistry) and if I take it I can break any bird at any angle in any wind from Amy yardage. Got a pair of 20s. False confidence. I did find out why my 75 TB fits and nothing else does. It has about an inch of cast on. Wow. I fit myself to it and now nothing else works. Peoria league starts next week so I'll have two chances a week to get it together.
