At a recent family reunion the owner setup a trap station and we had a little competition, I did OK (final 5) but most importantly, it was a lot of fun and I forgot how much I enjoy shooting my shotgun.
At my local club they do trap nights every Wednesday and I'm going to start up next week - just looking for any tips/suggestions. I'll be using my Remington 870 pump action, no plans on buying a $1000+ trap gun at this point.
I'll try and remember to swap the 18" barrel out for the stock one before I go.
I think the hardest part will be to not get discouraged, these guys shoot 97/100 and aren't at the top. If the reunion was any indicator, I'll be shooting 60/100 to begin with. In fairness to myself, I wasn't shooting with my own gun and it was one that I wasn't used to (pretty hefty semi-auto).
Guess I'll need a shell bag of some sort, other than that I think I'm OK for gear (eyes, ears, gun, ammo).
