Just got another email from a shooting buddy. A copy of a post that has to with this site and what we post. Looks like this guy had the AT watch huh? "It's hard for me to grasp how a hand full of old non shooters can hang on to their hate & bitterness. The few posters who actually have a pulse & are not just a figment of Joe's imagination never discuss anything except how bad the ATA & Sparta is. One of the most bitter clowns uses the screen name flyersarebest. He lurks on this forum with the screen name AJ100 & acts as Joe's messenger boy. You just have to feel sorry for them because hate & bitterness will just eat you up from the inside out. When they could be out shooting like us they set at their keyboards trying to keep Mcpeeks little playpen alive.....sorry little group!" I am posting this because this guy who is still hunting for a means to get his IQ above 44 mentioned my name. If you still have the watch run back and post this. I am not bitter and I don't "hate" the ata. One would have to care about something to "hate" it. That's the reason I don't hate you. You are a non-entity. You ARE comic relief but that's about it. When you search you will find my post that pretty much sums up why I write here. Your post above proves it. I hope you and your buds get to shoot ata targets for the rest of your lives. I hope it cost you $500 per year in dues and the ata has to spend every penny of it to keep that place in IL. going. Someday the Martins will be gone and you all will have to pony up more money. You will more than likely have to quit due to not having the means to pay but at least you can tell everyone that you were a "registered" trap shooter. It really is a shame since the target angles and yardage reductions were implemented so guys like you, that couldn't shoot well enough to compete, would stick around and support the ata. I hope someday you might even get 2,100 shooters to shoot the GAH event. So you see, I'm not bitter or a hater. Your rant I copied would however suggest that YOU on the other hand do have a problem. I hope my future post on this great site do nothing to diminish that. Oh, one more thing. As far as you and your pals out shooting while WE sit at our keyboards? I shot more targets in 5 years that you will shoot in 20 any when you get enough balls to step up to the peg in a ring let me know. (Like that is ever going to happen) And put some ice on that nerve I hit, it will help the pain. If one of you other stooges has the duty now let this guy know I responded.
