I did it! After 4 months of shooting skeet on Sundays I broke 25 straight. I was on the west field and there was another group on the east. Just a few moments before I finished someone over on the east also shot their first 25 straight. We got called over and had to throw our hats up in the air and everyone shot them. It was a cool moment. I shot 2 more rounds after that and stunk it up but I can say I've done it.
At the place I shoot skeet the hat shooting thing is a tradition. They only do it on your first 25 straight. I have no idea if it is a 'thing' everywhere. It was cool though. It should be a thing everywhere. Nice memory for sure.
