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.

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.
