    Sporting Clays = Fun!

    I shot sporting clays tonight! I've only done it one other time, a long time ago. It was a blast!

    I did ok... I had so much fun I didn't really care if I hit anything or not, though.

    Anyone else shoot clays?

    Love it! One of these days I'd like to try shooting clay with a .22, or maybe even a .410 revolver...

    Yes I shoot sporting clays a couple times a month along with 5 stand. Got the girlfriend into it ,and she wants to shoot clays more then the hand guns.
    We enjoy switching gun clubs we belong too for some variety.

    I shoot ATA Trap as often as possible, though not as much as I would like. I run a 34" Browning BT99 and I have been keeping my eye out for a skeet gun to move on to sporting clays and/or skeet. Hopefully I'll find a good deal on a Browning Citori.

    Usually 2 or 3 rounds of clays a year, tuning up for the dove season, plus a BSA benefit out here. Fun indeed!

    A buddy has some family with land and I get an invite to go out with them every once in a while. We shoot lots of stuff - lot of handguns and rifles but we almost always end with throwing and shooting clays. I love it, its probably one of the most fun things I've done shooting. I've only done it 3 times IIRC, but I've been impressed with my ability to hit a little flying disc (with a nice 28" barrel of course) - probably somewhere around 60+% hit rate. It's a blast. There's a skeet shooting course around here, been meaning to get some of us together and go check it out sometime.
    The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.

    I shoot both trap & skeet with my daughters (13 & 15) and occasionally my wife.. I love doing it but need some instruction as my technique is not as good as it should be. My youngest daughter (13) is right handed, but left eye dominant, so she is trying to learn to shoot left handed, she is getting a bit depressed because she keeps missing!! Have to get some lessons quickly and get her moral back before she just gives up..

    Have done it a few times, myself. Loads of fun. Very challenging. Have done it with a few different shotguns, including a SD pump, an over-and-under, a side-by-side "bird" gun. Varying difficulty and challenge, with each.

    Gary,
    Try something like the EasyHit or the Meadow's blinder, both block the off side eye from seeing the bead. Both/either will help your daughter learn to shoot with both eyes open which is absolutely critical for consistently high trap scores

    Many thanks for the links, I will definitely try one of them, she shoots targets well right handed, but the club said for skeet she should shoot left handed for best results as she is left eye dominant. If these devices will let her shoot right handed, it could get her interest back.. Sorry to hijack the thread.
