Skeet the clay's go right to left and left to right. They move very fast. Trap the clay's move away from you. Use a full choke for trap and a skeet or open choke for skeet. Trap for most people is easier to master.

Remember the clay's are moving around 60 mph. Not as easy as it looks.

By the way how does does it feel to finally have your first firearm in your hand My first was a shotgun too and I couldn't put it down for the next 48 hours. I field stripped it and cleaned it about a million and a half times lol

Whoa there big fella -- keep your feet on the ground. You're doing very, very, well so far. A bolt action big bore might be something to consider next, and last, for a while. Hunting season will be over early next year and they'll be almost free, used AND new...

Congrats!!! If you start getting into the clay sports you have to give sporting clays a try, it's all I do anymore.
