Ted Kozloff  is an unemployed lawyer who used to be a partner in a major Wall Street law firm. When Ted (and his firm) realized that all his clients had retired, been sold or died (which coincided with his 65th birthday), he took up trap shooting.

As lawyers entering new fields often do, Ted immediately began to read widely in the trapshooting area, while at the same time struggling to become nationally competitive by shooting around 20,000 targets a year. Although the first-hand experience acquired in shooting so many targets led Ted to become a reasonably good shot, the infirmities of old age overtook his ambition. Ted now contents himself with continuing to shoot regularly at VOMTC while inflicting his  semi-vast knowledge of trapshooting on his friends, many of whom are members .
