Here's my archery set-up, but I don't have a group to show (it would be embarassing anyway).
Have you tried shooting at golf balls? That would make the game more fun.
Very first time I shot trap the range master gave me the call,
I said pull,
the little disc sails up,
I bring the gun up (12ga) and turned it to dust.
I was rather surprised.
Range master comes over and says "very good, but next time I want you to bring the gun to your shoulder, not the bend of your elbow."
Guess my inner street warrior got the better of me. But I did as instructed for the rest of the day...
Couldn't hit a damn thing.
But...kept it up. Got a little better. Then tried skeet. Eventually got a little better at that too.
Little clay discs run and hide when I come near. They fear me, I can tell. I can hear them laughing around the corner.
I tried clay pigeon shooting a couple of times over here but didn't get a lot out of it to be honest so never went back.
When I was in the US I would go to the range with my son and his Sig and AR15. It's fun for a while but not something I would do for myself - however, ten pin bowling.
I think it is probably down to the company in any gun sport TBH.
Sounds like you found a great new hobby! Very cool.
I am in two shooting/hunt clubs, both with trap, skeet and various gun ranges. Great fun.
You saute those trap shards in a little butter and fresh dill, that's some good eating, paired with a nice Pouilly-Fuisse.
Be careful not to upset her is all I can say
I consistently tell her that if someone breaks down the door I am hiding behind her!!!
In my teens I was in the Air Training Corps, the Royal Air Force's cadet organization.
We had our own indoor range for shooting. 22s, but we also got a lot of range time at nearby RAF bases (when we still had some) shooting Enfield 303s. Our range time went through the roof in 1982 during the Falklands War, just in case those of us 16 and over got drafted.
25 yard range, shooting group on non-zeroed iron sights. On 40 year old rifles. A one inch group (like hitting a quarter five times in a row or five quarters in a row without missing) got you the RAF Marksman badge. I got it twice. More by luck than judgement though.
Occasionally they'd let us have a go with GPMGs and Sterling SMGs too.
We had one cadet on the 22 range who bounced his first shot off the side wall, shot a hole in the sandbag he was given to rest his rifle on. We took the other 3 rounds back.
Probably safer standing IN FRONT OF the rifle in his case....
... a bit like the A-Team
I used to do trap shooting. Did my own reloading and everything. Was pretty good at it, but haven't touched my guns now in over a decade. Still have all the stuff.
The best part is watching all the golfers hit the deck...
I hope she didn't have a photo of you plastered on that target. 'Cause that would be, you know, a bad sign.
i used to trap shoot but used my ex wife's homemade biscuits.
the cool thing was i could use them over and over.
A classic episode.
In todays upside down land it is an expensive hobby. You can literally count the dollars with every shot.
Trap really IS a lot of fun.
You're not kidding! The price of ammo has gone up roughly 400% in the last year +.
I did this as a kid and I loved it, there was a swinging arm behind a bunker so you never knew which direction it was going to go.
