^Thanks - will grab some goggles that fit over my glasses for the time being.

I shot 6 round of skeet with a few "A" level shooters Sunday. It was a true thing of beauty watching those guys shoot either 24's or 25's every game. I did shoot a 21 and 22 . I couldn't have been happier. The other 4 games I was in the high teens. Great sport.

The interesting thing is that your score is not very far from their score. The shotgun sports are consistency games. I'm not the hugest skeet fan (born to a trapshooter, thus born a trapshooter) but when I am shooting with really good shooters and struggling for my 23s and 24s, they are running round after round of 25 straight and pulling down 100 straight easier than I hit a 25. Humbling.

It is interesting. I wouldn't say I was scoring the same by any means but I do shoot better when I am with better shooters. I think consistency is key for sure. I was in a rhythm when I shot my two best games. I rushed in a couple guys to try to keep up with them. They played fast.
Do you shoot five stand or sporting clays?

Being on a squad with solid shooters is a wonderful thing - they don't have to be the best shooters, they just have to understand that rhythm is important -- and that is part of the consistency that is key to the shotgun sports.

 

In the shotgun sports I am mainly a trapshooter (having shot over 20k rounds, which is something like a ATA Registered shooter takes down every few years) but I do enjoy shooting Sporting Clays for fun, not seriously (the only range is too far and too expensive for me to shoot regularly). I've never shot 5-stand or wobble. I used to shoot and compete in a number of other disciplines, though nowadays I do not shoot nearly enough.

I am not sure i am ready for league play, yet. I am lucky to have a good group of shooters at my club that have taken me under their wing. At this rate I will have thousands and thousands of rounds down range by the end of summer. If I am happy where I am at by then I will join a league for sure.
I go hog hunting in June for the first time. I am excited because I picked up a savage .308 hog hunter. I used savage before hunting deer and I like the rifle. My hog hunter has a threaded barrel so I will run it suppressed once I get that stamp.
