You cant judge a trap shooter based on their gear. My local trap club actually has a woman that has traveled INTERNATIONALLY, she has all of the fancy gear, her gun looks like a transformer its so fancy. I have shot on the same line as her before and she shot horribly, I think she shot a 16 or a 17 when I shot a 23. Same goes as there are guys walking all over the club with patches they have won over the years for breaking 150 clays in a row, winning regional shoots, winning national shoots. Yet there are days where I have out shot them. The thing that when they are at the clubs they are practicing, while you may outshoot them one time or one day if you were to shoot consistantly like they do they are probably out shooting you on an average. Lets see you shoot a round of doubles with your pump. You are going to be slow, you will also be over choked for the first bird or under choked for the second bird. Hell I shoot pretty damn good with my pump gun, but I would love to own a Browning O/U with some gold leafed engraving. I would love a nice leather range bag with a nice leather dump pouch, I want one of the nice padded vests. Why, because I enjoy trap, I enjoy it enough that I want nice gear no matter how well I shoot. Why buy a lamborghini when my Toyota Fourrunner drives on the road just as good? Because I can and I want something nice.
