    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.

    Don't get into long distance shooting you'll drive yourself nuts if perfect is your new standard lol

    Nicely done. Soon you'll be upset when you 'only' get 23 or so......

    Today I shot 22, 24, 25, 23, 19. I was mad about the 22. The 19 was the result of wearing a black t-shirt in the hot sun for 4 rounds and being dehydrated, sweaty, and tired. I normally shoot 6 boxes of shells on Sundays but today it was 95 and sunny. It was too much for me. I was exhausted but tried 'one more'. Total waste of a box of shells. I need to know when to quit. I learned that today. Gives me new respect to the guys/gals that can shoot 25 straight every time they shoot. That and the guys that can do it with .410s. Now that's impressive.

    Great, well done. :)
    When I was shooting I broke 24 several times,
    But no 25.
    Went straight on Trap several times.

    Congratulations! Now say good bye to any money you had saved up. You might hang on to your G/F if she is an angel. Otherwise be prepared for your life to to be consumed by clay pigeons.

    Call me a newbie but is shooting your hat a thing? Do you have to get 25 in a row to wear said hat :D

    Congrats on the feat man!! Can't say I've even got close haha

    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.
