Sporting clays anyone?
Does anyone here shoot sporting clays, trap, skeet?

Several years back we would shoot about every other weekend, but I had to quit for a medical issue. I was asked to particapte (donate money) in a charity shooting event on this Saturday so I thought a little pratice would be a good thing. Back in the day both of us hit around 22 out of 25 just about every round so surly I would hit enough not to make a total fool of myself...WRONG! I was thinking that I would be a little "rusty", but I sure didn't expect to shoot THAT BAD!!! Hope it comes back soon!

Practicing last week reminded me of how much I really enjoyed the sport! Just wondering if anyone else here likes the shooting sports.

I used to shoot every weekend at home with my dad and sometimes thursday nights but now that i am at school we shoot less frequently. I try and get out as much as i can up here but with classes and duck hunting to be done every few sundays are the norm. hope the skill comes back. just remeber keep your head down...jk

Only bows. I have a couple of old recurves, but I'm pretty sure that doesn't count ;)

If you can shoot clays with a bow, my hat's off to you!!!

tiny terror 11-02-2006 11:38 PM

naw, I was just butting in ;)

though.... I do shoot a bow very well and I also spend a lot of time with my hands in clay..... hmmmmm. Nope. Even though all the elements are there, I can't interconnect them. Put your hat back on.

I just joined a league this year. I had never done it before. When I was a kid I used to work in the trap houses seting birds, but I never got into it. I really enjoyed shooting this year. Since I lost my right eye a few years back I now have to shoot left handed. Shooting trap really helped me to get comfortable using the wrong hand. The last night of the league I finally shot a 25 with a total two round score of 47. Every week I would hit a couple more birds.

Well I never thought of shooting as physical theorpy...that is pretty cool! I have played sports since chilhood including picking up golf a few years ago, but nothing gives me quite the same enjoyment.

I used to shoot alot when I was in a league. Since then my aim has gone south. To make matters worse we just lost our local trap and skeet range to a new housing development.
