The Model 37 doesn't have a rib.

Okay, if you are seeing the barrel you're shooting high.

Yup. Just like anything else, as soon as more than one guy is playing, the 'let's see who is better' starts. Then comes rules, regimentation, registration, competitions, and then, the death blow - money gets involved, and with it, cheating, sandbagging, whining about how hard it is, so let's make it easier. Look at ATA Trap - softer targets, no more hard angles. Skeet - slower targets, no more low-gun rule, instant pulls.
So far, Sporting has seemed to dodge some of that. The good shooters seem to like more difficult presentations to challenge themselves. I'm in no way a Master-class Sporting shooter, but I'd still rather not shoot 'soft' targets. I don't shoot competition, either. Just a bunch of us folks that can still go out and have a great time shooting and socializing.
As for the mounted gun, not all of us do that.

Ah, but there's no rule that says you have to be standing there with your gun shouldered. You can shoot it any way you like.

What about the guys who are using their $200 12 gauge? Do they work for you? I shoot my O/U or semi low gun, and practice that way, because I shoot FITASC. I DO chuckle when I see some ex military who holds it muzzle pointing down with the buttstock above their shoulder blade and then try to move the gun all over the place while trying to catch the bird.

There are lots of guys who chuckle when they see me with the Model 37 and Chuck with his 870. All that matters to us is we have a good time and can figure out how we missed that so called easy one.

Went Saturday to shoot a quick round and couldn't due to a copitention shoot going on.

Drove to another place we used to go often. It has fell on hard times since all the law suits from the HOA's near by. If you want to shoot clays you have to be there well before 2:00 PM on a Saturday, wasn't told about Sunday shoots.

Place used to be a hopping place for shot gunners with skeet(3 fields) trap (1field), 5 stand (2 fields) and sporting clays. rifle and pistol range and archery 3D.

Sad to only see 2 other cars in the parking lot on a Saturday afternoon at 2:45 PM.

If you think they chuckle when they see a couple of pumps, you should see what they do when they see a .410

And especially when that person with the 410 shoots respectable scores....

Why didn't you shoot the competition?
