    Never seen a trap shooter smile, you'll have an adjustment period to the talking, laughing and joking, but you should enjoy it..........Joe

    Been shooting Skeet since 1958. Got to AA with 410, won that ga at our State shoot several years ago.

    Love trap, shot a bunch of it, have life long friends I met on the Trap field.

    Got hooked on Sporting, a terrible malady! The 28 and 410 make it even more fun. :D

    I wish skeet clubs where as easy to find as trap clubs as I enjoy shooting all the shotgun sports.

    Like all shooting. Trap shooting with 12ga is too much for me unless with semiauto. Same with any shotgun shooting. That's one reason skeet has been so attractive. 20 ga. does really well in 12 events.

    I shoot the 20g in the 12g event all the time. Haven't shot a 12g in skeet for many years.

    I shoot all four gauges frequently, for the 12 gauge, I've been loading 3/4 oz loads for about a year now, they don't kick any harder than the 20 ga. and still breaks the birds.............Joe

    We used to shoot complete rounds of Skeet from the "hip" when I was young. I could usually break in the 20's. All it takes is practice.

    I tend to shoot more trap because the clubs I belong to have more trap leagues. Only skeet league is a mixed league where both skeet and trap is shot then a skeet league in the middle of winter. I do love to shoot skeet though and try to get to the skeet fields a couple times a week. If I plan to shoot trap too I'll use my Citori XT for skeet, it works as good for skeet as it does for trap (at least for me it does).

    Beware the man with one gun, or who has guns with the same POI. My 2 O/U's, Beretta 391 loaner, and 391 Extrema Field gun all have the same POI.

    I like to shoot skeet in high wind....for me it's all about the fun and making the occasional spectacular shot. I once saw a target come out of the low house and go through the high house window and out the back door...how it got past the trap in the high house unscathed had to be a miracle.
