Sorry on the GSCA, wrong org. I was thinking of NSCA. Anyhow, by all means we can get together to shoot. There is always room for one more. If the weather is good, as in not raining this time of year, Friday's are good. Usually get there by 9:15. I use a red Polaris Ranger for my clay's cart so I'm easy to spot.

I have to warn you, we joke with each other and do not take the shooting too seriously. We are not competitors, we're just out for a fun time followed by lunch.

GSCA is part of the NSCA and a registered shoot is competition and many DO take it seriously, so a little courtesy when folks are shooting is always nice. Now, when they're done and you want to rag on them, that is one thing.

I'm also curious about the "BS" you mention regarding the NSCA. What is all of that about?

Hagh! NOS, the first thing I learned in this stuff is you absolutely have to have a good sense of humor in this sport or your going to probably give up on it. It
As for getting together to shoot, I spoke before I researched the drive distance/time and its a 2 1/2 hour drive under optimum conditions, rush hour traffic through metro Atlanta is horrific, my drive time would be over three hours and I would arrived frazzled from the drive. I'm respectfully declining the invite.
Doh!

No problem,I didn't know your distance. AS for the NSCA, it has to do with what they consider a safety issue that I do not. I will not comply with their rule, therefore I will not be shooting any sanctioned event.

In their rule book under Safety II A 3. Page 14. They will not allow a horizontal carry on a cart. All muzzles must be up or down for fear that you may drive by someone with the muzzle pointed in their direction.

On my cart, rigged for horizontal carry, the firearm is not only empty, but in a locked enclosed container with no access from anyone or anything. I call bs on their rule. The gun arrives in an independent breakdown case. It is assembled, empty, placed in the horizontal case, empty, the lid is closed and four latches secure the lid of the custom cut foamed Pellican case which is bolted to the cart. On station the gun is removed, broken open, and transported to the gun rack beside the station, then closed, awaiting my turn to shoot. I remove the gun from the rack by the station, break it open again, and enter the shooting box. If the station calls for 8 rounds, that's all I take to the station. I shoot. When I'm done, the gun is once again broken open and transported to the horizontal case for transport. There is nothing in this scenario unusual or unsafe.

I will not alter my horizontal carry. It is safe, securely contains the gun, and there is no chance of accidental discharge.

No, it is not.......but since you will not obey universal rules on safety, see ya around; but to call the entire national governing body BS because of you is total crap

btw...whats to keep someone from loading a loaded gun in a case...then putting it on the cart? it can be missed.
last time i checked, a discharging load will exit a case pretty easily. just my observation.
i dont do carts. im a skeet/trap shooter who doesnt play shotgun golf.
just curious.
