It is only when I go to places with the nouveau riche crowd that you see people get flustered by missing a clay or bird.
Where do you shoot, if I may be so nosey as to inquire?

To know the future is to be trapped by it

It's a bit pricey but a nice place with good folks. I couldn't afford to join if they didn't keep me busy working on their guns. If your ever down, look me up.

Might want to go and learn HOW those guys shoot, as well as see what vendors are there. A great way to see how some games are played if you've never done them before

Post is nearly a year old you know!!!!!

Like watching millionaires play base ball, foot ball and basket ball, standing around watching people who to me are rich shoot sporting clays isn't my cup of tea.


Game was invented to be closer to hunting game than skeet and trap. Those guys with shot guns worth thousands, standing in the box with their guns shouldered when they call for the target just don't work for me.

I need to buy a box of birds for here at home to shoot with my 20ga Ithaca 37.

Looking down the barrel it appears the reason I am missing so many is I am shooting high.
Switched out to my Bretta silver snipe 20ga last Sunday and did way better.
