    My husband and I were big into trap/skeet a couple years ago. We've been invovled in other hobbies and haven't been out in a long time.

    We both have our own guns, a sit-down trap thrower, and a garage full of cases of clay birds waiting to be shot at. :D

    You should try Trap - that's even easier than skeet!!

    You want a challenge - try *Sporting clays*. That's fricken hard!!

    Not a whole lot of areas near me have skeet/sporting clays. Gotta drive a bit to a field (and when they're open to the public). That's why we've primarily done trap for availability.

    What gun did you shoot?

    i went bird hunting for the first time a couple weekends ago. great time. we had some excellent dogs and trainers. i ended up getting 3 phesants, 2 chukar and one quail. phesants and chukar were pretty slow, but damn are those quail fast. i actually did better shooting at the live birds than the clays we practiced with the day before. used the old 870 express with 28" modified choke. i missed less times than a guy there with a beretta extrema.

    i was using a 20 gauge double barrel. No pump action. i was hitting those things left and right with that gun. i loved it. What is the difference between Skeet and trap?

    Trap basically has ONE house where the birds come out of. The birds go flying out directly in front of you (away from you). It's a lot of depth perception and having the right choke. Here's a typical field layout.

    Skeet - birds come from two houses and you have many different positions. Birds flying at various different directions/orientations.
    Here's a typical skeet layout.

    Sporting Clays doesn't have a set layout. You'll have stations through-out any given area..... anywhere. You'll have clay birds dropping down at you from the sky, rolling across the ground (rabbits), shooting just about anywhere and everywhere and you don't know where/when they'll come at you. It depends on the field and field layout.

    I thought I was pretty decent at trap, and haven't done much skeet, but then a while back tried sporting clays. Fun and very humbling.

    Knocked down a couple of Canadian geese just a week ago, two shots, two geese, same flight. Guess what I'm fixin' for Thanksgiving?

    Tastes like chicken? ;)

    I dunno if I could actually do any real hunting. Although, I enjoy shooting rabbits in my backyard (Shhhh!) I just don't wanna eat them (and wash them, and de-fur them, and remove their guts, and wash then again, and...and). Yuk!

    I've done trap shooting. It's a lot of fun. I typically get 20-23 out of 25 at 19 yards (the shortest at the range I shoot at). My shotgun is a Mossberg 500 pump. I've never tried skeet or sporting clays.
