    I have shot a little trap in the family farm fields and decided the only way to get better is to join a small family owned gun club and shoot in a men's league. Well I had my best round of the year. I think this is the 4 or 5th week of shooting. I had a 20/25 and a 24/25. I've been averaging 17/25 and couldn't believe it. And to top it off my 17 year old grandson shot with us to fill in for a guy that couldn't make it Sunday and he had a 17/25 and a 20/25. Of course his score won't count but this was his first time shooting trap. Sure makes for a proud grandpa to see him shoot so well. I think we will have a new team member for next year. I realize these scores are not great but for first time shooters I think we did pretty good.

    Having fun and enjoying time with family and friends is what counts most.

    It sure was fun. My son and I are going to try to to get together and shoot with his 13 year old son ( my middle grandson) and my 17 year old grandson each week. I need to get my youngest grandson a shotgun and start working with him and get him out with us too. He is 10 and has a 22 but has never shot a shotgun. I'll try a 20 gauge auto and see how he does.
    And thanks Deer. Hopefully we can continue getting better.
    I picked up a 12 gauge reloader and need to get a 20 gauge reloader so I don't go broke buying so much ammo. My brother in law is a competitive trap shooter and is showing me how to reload. This sure helps with the learning curve when you have someone with so much experience.

    reloads

    are you finding shot at a price that makes it worth reloading 12 and 20 ?around here reload .410 and 28 but otherwise keep an eye on the sales the sales and buy new.

    My brother in law has a big stash he bought years ago and sold me some at a good price. When I run out of it I have a gun shop so I can get a little better price than retail.
