Sporting clays

I was wondering if anyone shot competitively? I have always loved shooting and I finally did a tournament last weekend at quail creek in okeechobee with my grandpa and little cousin. About 150 people showed up and I got second with a 93 and my grandpa got first with a 94. I shoot a beretta 391 silver mallard with some trigger work and barrel work and my grandpa shoots a kreighoff k-80 with a ton of work done to it including release trigger ( old man has got the flinches) but if anyone else out there's into it I'd love to talk about it some more so share your story!!

I have done one comp, just for fun, about a year ago. I have a stock Remington 12 gauge I use for bird hunting, nothing special. I shot an 86. Not even close to a 93, props on that.

Damn I didnt think anyone was ever gonna reply to this lol yeah I was pretty excited about that score. I've shot a couple since then and not done too bad. Got 8th in the state in my class and third in a sub gauge tournament. Glad to see there's some other clay shooters out there

Congrats on getting into it and doing so well. Usually me and my buddies just go out to a feild and throw clays and shoot rifle and hand guns. We play a game called "Annie Oakley". You line up however many people you want and throw a clay, the first person shoots. If they miss and the second person hits it their out. If they hit it and the second person hits a fragment of the shoot clay then their out. It keeps going like that. It has gotten me a lot better a bird hunting since it teachs you to redirect and have to shoot a lot quicker.

It's definitely a fun sport but it can get expensive lol that Annie Oakley game sounds fun, but what happens when you dust one of em with a tight choke? Lol I shot in the florida state championship a couple months ago and got 8th in my class

i shoot competitively when i have the chance to take off work (esp when work is thin) only thing is i shoot black powder 12ga (old school shotgun) in trap, quail walk so on and so forth down in friendship, IN its a good time. have my fair share of trophies and what not. but yes it does get expensive i can go down there and blow over $150 easy after fee's to shoot my shot and powder caps and so on

I shot competitively for about 2 years. Shot a mix of a cynergy sporting (amazing gun) and a al391 with adjustable buttplate, balancing weights, all the goodies. Loved every minute of it, still got my pair of oakley shooting glasses if the opportunity ever presents itself. The downside is i was shooting 3 rounds a week and got burnt out rather quickly, maybe one day. (yes i reloaded...lol mec9000)
