Etiquette
 
On another site that I visit some folks were complaining about being "pushed" by the squad behind them in a recent shoot.
It seems like the folks behind them would come up and put their guns in the rack and stand directly behind the shooter in the box. 6-10' away.
I was never told that there was a specific distance but I always remained in my cart until the squad ahead of me finished. Usually about 10 yards away. I always felt the rack was for the squad shooting .
Anyone care to comment on the proper etiquette?

It's only common courtesy to stay away from the squad that's shooting until they're finished.

Don't disturb them with loud talk either.

So shooting over the other guys shoulder and breaking the target he missed would be considered "bad form?"

sounds like the classic slow golfer situation.
and since in golf, a slow group can opt to let a fast group pass them....
sounds logical to me to continue to be like golf.
afterall...it is :>.

Part of the issue with what happened with these guys crowding the squad in front of them was that they were not allowed to let them "play though" like you would do in golf. They said it was part of the rules. I am not sure if it was a local thing or if that is a general rule. What do you think Bobski ? can you help me out here ?

I don't think bobski shoots Sporting Clays much but I could be wrong.

When we shoot informally, people play through on a regular basis. I've come to the point where I start on Station #3 to avoid this problem, go on to 12, then shoot #2 and #1 on the way down.

In tournament play locally, they don't let them play through. I don't know what they do elsewhere.

We pretty much do just like you...and I don't have any problem waiting if I can tell that the last shooter is in the box. A lot of times we will shoot the course in reverse order.

Interesting... Many of the "old Trap and Skeet" guys I have talked with say that they don't like SC's And FITASC because the targets don't fly in a consistent pattern and it upsets their routine. I personally prefer the challenge of not knowing that the targets will be flying in a "set" pattern... BTW my golf shots are the same way.. All over the course !LOL

im trying to compare the issues that come up on a golf course to s.clays. they mimick each other....because they are designed after each other.
so youd think...an issue during a s.clays game should have the same fix as a golf course.
