Just bragging I guess. I bought my first shotgun 1.5 years ago.

I thought, at age 80, I should have a new hobby. I hadn't shot a gun of any kind in over 60 years prior.

I shoot Trap; Wobble Trap and some Skeet with my Citori CX 12 gauge.

A month ago I finally killed 25 Trap birds. Yesterday, after a few 23 and 24 sessions over the last few weeks, I shot 50 straight Wobble Trap clays.

I only shoot twice a week, 50 shells at a time. On to Skeet tomorrow! I set a goal to kill 25 in Trap, Wobble and Skeet this summer. We shall see.

Like they say, it isn't bragging if you can do it! Congratulations!!!

50 Straight in Wobble trap is a huge accomplishment.

Skeet's easier, but not easy by any means.

I shot Sporting Clays twice. You are correct, it is much harder than Trap or Skeet. I also shot Five Stand a few times, and I found that difficult. Like anything, the more you do it, the less you will be surprised by the angles and speeds, I suspect.

However, Wobble Trap is very interesting to me. You simply do not know what angle or height the bird is coming/going from. I like it best of all, especially on a windy day.

If you like Wobble on a windy day, you'll absolutely love Sporting Clays on a windy day. I know I do.

Rich, IMHO you have the right to brag a bit! You have done extremely well, my friend.
I have been hoping that ammo availability would improve this year so that I could bring you over to my club and repay you for your hospitality at your club. Sooner or later....

If you like that challenge, fins a club (most likely in Texas) that throws ZZs. Meant to simulate live pigeons, you do not know which trap will launch, nor which direction it will go. Being composed of a plastic propeller and a plastic witness cap, it takes more than a few pellets to separate the two.
