Re: Went trap shooting today for the first time
My wife and I both shoot competitively. We shoot trap 3 nights a week and shoot skeet on Sundays. I have been shooting trap for about 20 years and I finally got her interested about 3 years ago, now I cant keep her away from it! She is pretty good and frequently beats the guys in the games we shoot. We probably shoot more shells in a week than most people shoot all year! I have 2 Dillons SL900's and 5 Mec 9000's just to keep us in ammo.(I load all the gauges .410,28,20,12) for skeet.
I currently have 8 dedicated trap guns...Caeser Guerini Summit Trap(my current shooter), Krieghoff KS5 Special, 2 BT100's(blue and stainless) BT99 Plus, 2 Model 12 Traps and a 525 32" Sporting O/U.
My skeet guns are all 525 grade III's in .410,28,20,12 plus another 525 with Kolar subgauge tubesets, and lastly a Model 42 .410 pump all skeet grade guns.
You might say we are addicted, but it helps to be VP of our gun club with keys to trap and skeet range so we can go shoot anytime we want. Plus I only live about 5 minutes from our club so I spend a lot of time there!
