One of the guys in my design group shoots competitively and invited me to come shoot today. I've never shot clay before, I've only blown up some fruit with my mossberg 500 and shot my friends rifles.

It was WAY more fun than I imagined. I hit 34/50 and beat one of the 4 regulars who were in my group. I had the pleasure of shooting my friends Browning citori trap 12 guage, man what a sweet machine.

Trap is awesome - my Dad used to shoot it competitively, have gone with him quite a few times :D More fun that wasting 12 gauge on stationary targets.

34 is really good for a first timer! :cheers hell i average high 30's on the amateur/advanced course. My records 46, which is going to be hard to beat. Keep at it you can only get better

Yeah it's a good time :thumbup I've never done it at an official place. We used to just go to my friend's property with one of those small throwers you have a buddy working. Still fun as hell though.

Yeah all the old kodgers were razzing me until I shot and then they said I should come back after that. I may take it up some time but I really don't have the time to do it regularly now. It was really fun though.

I love shooting trap and skeet. It's the best way to warm up for duck hunting. Glad you had fun.

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!
