    What the FXvV doc? The question was asked if you would enter it. YES or No? There are a lot of ways to enforce it. Maybe you really are a champion of xxxxx assed shoots. All talk right doc?

    So Doc, would you enter?

    Doc is missing meds again? Slow targets = boring ties.

    The forum has to be amazed that any one person can misread or not comprehend a thread as often as the author of the above statement. The question has nothing to do with the ATA.

    It says do you want 1oz loads. I said yes at ATA shoots. I don't care what other shoots do. What don't you understand?

    Maybe T shot is like N1H1 and only participates in "real trapshooting".

    I mistakenly shot a handicap event out at the Old Red Mountain club with 1 oz of 8's from the 27 yard line (Remington Nitro 27's/ 1 oz -8's) ... I didn't notice it until I went to get shells for the next trap, by then it was to late to go and change them besides that I was only down one target out of the first 50 so I figured the hell with it .... I ended up winning the event with a 97 so that eliminated any doubt about 1 oz breaking targets ... I do not make it a habit to shoot 1 oz or even 8's from handicap, just don't seem right for some reason ... I have shot 1 oz. /8's while shooting practice and seem to do reasonably good with them but I do not want to give up the extra and bigger shot when it matters ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    WPT: I tend to agree with you, But out West the targets break easier in the Dry Climate, I have heard a lot of Western Shooters used 1 1/8th oz of 8s

    You would not believe what a 1oz of #6s would do, I have shot a lot of them w/excellent results, Like Leo said he would shoot #6s if they were legal.

    Back in the 80s a shooter bet Mike Jordon that he couldn't break more than 20 targets from the 27 with 1oz of 9s .Mike broke 23 and walked away with a case of beer.
