Default Shooting some clays

We were visiting the grandparents today and decided to take the thrower and shotguns with us since they have some land. Haven't got to shoot in a long time ´cos most of the outdoor ranges are closed during the winter so we had a lot of fun.

It was already getting dark around 15.00 so the pics are a bit gray.

Setting up the range. From left to right: my brothers girlfriend, my father and my brother´s the one with the gun.


Aiming...


...and hit (there´s a small cloud of dust, a bit hard to see in the pic).


My father with the Mossy.

The tools.


My mother and my brothers girlfriend don't like the recoil on the 12ga but we´ll try to get them to shoot also with the CZ 452 .22lr Varmint I´m getting next week.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

The temperature has been around -5 F for a couple of weeks now, so it is kinda cold

That looks like you guys had a blast. I was able to do that last year with my friend Stalkingbear and had the most fun!! Those are great pictures. Here is one while I was in Kentucky visiting him.
