Default the skeet and trap thread

i cant help noticing a lot of riot, slug, and HD shotgun threads going on here, so im going to offer a place for people who like clay sports and target shotguns to chime in and talk skeet and trap.
if anyone has any questions on the particulars of the sport, put them here and i'll do the best to answer them!

I haven't shot trap in years, only did skeet once and I totally sucked on that. Can't wait to finally do sporting clays for the first time.

Thank goodness. I was getting sick of Mossberg Maverick88 threads.

Yes! I love to shoot clays! Trap, skeet, you name it, I love it! It's been cold and windy around my neck of the woods, so I haven't been out for a couple weeks. I miss it.

My Friends and I used to shoot a LOT of Trap and Skeet around the los angeles area.
Sadly,
All the ranges are long since gone.
Only one remaining,
The International Trap and Skeet Range in South El Monte.
Spent many days and nights there.

That site is missing a couple in my area. It's a good reference though.
