I just got into trap this year. I had shot skeet a few times 30 yrs ago, but just never got into it. Now, being retired, I have time to do more things. My friend, also retired, invited me to go shoot a few rds of trap earlier this yr, and I was hooked. I bought a CZ o/u 12 ga, joined a club, and go often. The ranges are only open a couple of days a week.
The best part of this story, is I got my son,(who's 39) hooked on it too. We have gone shooting a few times, and he's now looking to buy a shotgun. My gun isnt an expensive one, but it shoots just fine for me. Don't need a $2k-5k gun to have fun.
