    I believe ya fully Mr. Dysinger.

    One year when I broke my first and only 200, me and Shaeffer were shooting on the same squad at the keystone open in may, at pssa. Well, of course, shaeffer broke them as well. We were the only 200's on the day, and we shot with a random squad that day.

    I saw one of them the next day, during the doubles, and he told me that the pssa officials called the other 2 squad members and himself in to the office to verify that we weren't calling targets for each other. They told them we weren't, and that was that, but I never got called and neither did shaeffer. They try so hard to throw him out, they just finally succeed.

    I say it was collusion, through and through.

    MX10,

    Was it the Pa. people or the ATA that wanted him gone? My first reaction was that it was a set up, I talked to Sandy , and was not told who started the foul language. If David is OK with not shooting registered any more, fishing is a very good sport and no one cares if you win or not. Personally I would return and wax their asses every chance I got, I would be very calm and extract a lot of revenge. Win their trophies and then not pick them up, but I would be first in line to collect my money. Roger C.

    Why would the ATA have any reason to "get rid of" Dave?
    I think if you're taking Dave's side just because you're anti ATA, you are ignoring all the facts.

    Sounds like one of those you can only be a racist if your white things coming up kids ... I believe someone stated he was on the squad (post 5) but what would he know ..? Like Paul Harvey always said "Page Two" ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    El Paso. It was a question???? Did you not see the ? mark at the end of the sentence? Read the whole post, I tried to straighten out the facts at one time. I have nothing against the ATA. I have a lot against the self servers and some of the nefarious people that have sat on the EC counsel. Your reading comprehension needs a little help. Roger C.

    Did you ask her who started the foul language or did she just not offer the information?

    She did not volunteer the info, and I did not ask. I would not expect a lady to start that kind of language. I wish Osker had not waited so long to make his post. Roger C.

    Anti ata? Lololol. I shoot over 7,000 registered targets a year.

    The politics of this sport, is why I've never tried to get in to them.

    Wow! This seems like a rerun of the never ending movie. Lots of speculation and few facts. My question is: "Did the ATA/EC ever publish the "facts" of the investigation and suspension?" Also, non subject related question: "Is the post regarding Mr. Schaeffer not being able to be in possession of a gun accurate and if so why?"

    I hope this guy will be back soon. Hey Dave, the Northeastern Grand is coming up. You are always welcome in New York.

    It has been suggested that Mr. Schaeffer because of a non shooting related incident is not able to be in possession of firearms any longer. Does anyone have information on this? If it is not true there should be a clarification and apology posted here.

    Does anyone know what city in Maryland that David Shaeffer Jr. lives in? And a very odd (but telling?) silence here about clarification of a as yet unsubstantiated accusation against this man. Very unfair and should be corrected.

    Thank you user 1...I find it sad and inexcusable that someone can openly accuse or even suggest another is guilty of something here without being held accountable through posting factual information to back up the claim. It would seem since the accuser remains silent that Mr. Shaeffer is owed an apology.

    Maybe the accuser works for the New York Times.

    Maybe it's a NEW ATA challenge called Backwards Trap ???

    Where Post 1 is actually 5, 4 IS 2, 3 IS 3, 2 is 4, 1 IS 5

    OOPS, more trophies to be bought...

    The ATA world needs every shooter it can get. This whole story is hard to believe. The part where someone in the following squad supposedly saw everything is over the top.

    Not my idea but the forum failed here. A go fund me account should have been started for this stuff.

    Never to late, get one started. Name me as administrator and I'll make sure that Big Dave gets some of the money.

    Dave gets some of the money?

    Sure. After you draw a graph and take your $16,000 gun.

    MOT. You said
    Please tell us what was heard. f am sure many here if not thousands that have read this thread want to know what other information or story is out there.

    I am only asking that you share it. This site is about getting the information out. If you have heard anything please share it. I was not at the shoots with you. Thanks for lurking.

    I differ with Rookieshooter. I am capable of deciding for myself what is out there. Merlo says I can decide. Give me the information.

    MOT.....so you came on here to say you have nothing to say while implying some here should not be discussing anything. I will leave your posts of nothingness for a very short time. Then I will take them down.

    Well MOTrp725,

    I usually appreciate the opinions of others, even when they differ from my own.

    I didn't ask for names or anything that might be construed as confidential.

    You said you researched the incident and implied you have conflicting details. I asked that you share your conflicting information. That's a discussion. That's what we do here.

    I must admit, your unwillingness to provide a general summary of what you've uncovered or discuss the subject further, has left me scratching my head, wondering why you commented at all.

    HB
