Things were not quite so serious in the clay shooting world back then though.

And all the better for it as far as I can make out.  I thought it was supposed to be enjoyable.

Don't you believe it. Sportsmanship and good manners where probably higher then to what I hear these days with throwing guns down , pearing over shoulders, having tantrums, abusing officials.

If you really want to see shooters get upset then go to a Trap shoot, if a cow breaks wind in the next field they are whining to the Ref. and if you really want to pea them off, turn up with an auto.  😎

Trap shooters are quite remarkable in their ability to be rattled by the most trivial of things.

At the risk of being controversial, DTL is the easiest game of all, yet in my experience those that shoot that discipline are the most highly strung.

My first National PAA was in 1975, I was using an AyA No.2 for EVERYTHING.  I finished 9th overall (combined DTL, Skeet and Sporting). I seem to recall that it was all 50 birders back then though. Them Winnie AA's  32 gram, kick like a donkey in a light S x S. I still have the bruises 44 years on  !     ???

And then they get in the stand and say "can I see a pair?" on a busy day. Had all 4 one after the other do it. And I wonder why I don't shoot so much clay these days.....

I discovered a solution to this yesterday. Go out when it’s absolutely torrential rain, I was the only idiot out.
