So who has been out shooting? What do you like and why? Post some scores!! Are leagues worth it or should a shooter just go out for fun? Lets get a forum going and maybe get together and shoot!!

I've been contemplating shooting sporting clays with a 28ga. I am no expert and I am far from perfect with my league shoots but I see a challenge and I kinda want to go for it. Any words of wisdom??

Shot this past weekend and emptied 700 shells. On Saturday and Sunday, I won my yardage group in handicap and ended up paying $60 to shoot all weekend when figuring in my winnings. I didn't win on the one option I played each day.

Tim, congrats and keep up the great shooting!!


One Shot, keep practicing! 80% vision in the primary eye is difficult to work with. Just like riding a bike they say!!


1fowl one, Thank you for your insight. I appreciate it! Congrats to the kiddos and their success. Proud papa moments!! Gotta love em.

Grizz,

MULLIGANS!? LOL! No, I have never heard of anyone ever using one. But it wouldn't surprise me if some gun clubs allow it to happen. I get irritated with some clubs, allowing some leagues, to reshoot scores. Or, some guys and clubs calling two, say, 25 straights on a leauge score, a week apart, a 50 straight. Especially when they're practicing in between. I feel it takes the true value of a "straight" away.

My daughter and son shot their first Invitational competition last weekend. Son (13) shot a 95 took 1st and daughter (10) a 71 took 2nd in their age groups.

Wife and I are shooting the couples league again. Need to dial in quick if we want to win this year. Couple good teams shooting.

First time shooting trap in 8 months or so . Only managed 13/25 with the 20 gauge . Guess I will need more practice before the charity shoot .  Only 80% vision in dominant eye may figure into it  ??

Today, when it counted, I registered a 92 in doubles. Best score in quite a while.

Shot a 46/50 in doubles trap today. Very happy. Hit targets really hard.

Week #2 @ Wern Valley for their Summer league. I shot a personal best 49. My question to all..... do you use mulligans when shooting league? I didn't but I have heard of other teams allowing 1 during a league shoot. If I did use 1 I think I may have gotten my first ace. I missed a real easy shot....


Interested in hearing your opinions....
