    Smile Trap Shooting fun!

    Shot 3 rounds of trap today. Got a personal best of 20, 22, and 23 out of 25...for a combined 87% hit rate.

    I used my one and only shotgun - a stock Rem 870 Express pump. Took the 20" barrel off, and put the 26" back on.

    I have to say...I did take a bit of satisfaction in besting some loud mouths with expensive (VERY expensive O/U) "trap" shotguns.

    A beautiful day...good friends...and good shooting. Not much better than that!

    Once I get into the consistent 90% range, I've got to try some skeet...
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    Sounds like fun. Nothing beats firing a pump shotgun.

    All the different clays sports, from trap and skeet to sporting clays, and just informal go out to a field and use hand throwers. I always seem to neglect them since I usually shoot by myself, or with one or two other people, and clays are more fun in a group. But maybe once a year or so I get a chance to go do it, and am reminded of how fun all of them are. You get to add some competition/bragging rights to the reactive targets, and its really not expensive compared to other forms of shooting (30 bucks for informal shooting, $20 for 100 shells, 10 for 90 clays). It is always a great time. Last time I went out for some informal clay shooting in a group I took my 930 SPX, because I could. I actually got decent at hitting clays with the 18.5" barrel and ghost rings.

    Glad you had a fun day of it, you should be able to break 90% with a bit of regular practice.
