Had a great time...
My scores sucked since it was the first time I've even fired a shotgun..

1st round.. out of 25 pulls .. Hit ... 5
2nd round.. out of 25 pulls .. hit ... 12

not bad in my mind... had lots a fun..
it over to damn fast is my only complaint.

was in the dallas area.. winchester range on luna road.

Gun Used:
Pump Winchester model 1200
winchester light load AA

They also had setups for Sket, sporting clays... and one other thing that I cant recall.

went both rounds by myself since it was empty when I arrived.. as soon as was done people started pulling up and groups started forming.. bet they had fun..

I just went to the trap range last weekend. I went with my father and three brothers. We shoot something called five-stand. The are 8 different places where the clay flies from. Each time there is a different combo, a total of 25 shots. It is a lot of fun and firendly competition. As every competition we do in our family, we encourage heckling. We really razz the other people when they miss the easy ones.

Skeet and trap shooting is something my family has done forever. It is great memories and we normaly go out every fathers day. Its tradition in our family to hand down shotguns. I have a Browning Citori superlight 12ga O/U that my father gave me. My 6 week old son has just received a Winchester 12ga 101 O/U from his grandfather... Be a few more months before he can use it.

You should try Flury shooting.

The birds are thrown from four-six different directions Left/right/away from you/straight toward you over your head / and at angles.

There are 25 birds realeased in around 2 minutes.

Best use an automatic.

Its is fast paced because you have to reload.
It will heat up your barrel for you.

Five stand is what it was...

Guess I'll call to see if they offer "Flury Shoots" ...

Guess I really , really enjoyed it cause it wasnt just a stationary target...

its nice to get a chance to hit moving targets every once in a while..

if you keep at it, it only gets better.......

my skeet gun is a Winchester 101 o/u, i belive my greatest thrill in skeet shooting was hitting the hi&lo birds with one shot........
