How good are you at shooting a shotgun...



At those little clay pigeon things? Id like to think im a shade above average..depending on the gun I use. And if I miss, its usually because of the sun in my eye, or the got damn hand thrower fricking with me.

But seriously, we had a decent turnout with some qaulity shooters last weekend. Believe there was 6 of us, and that was on 3 days notice and an anchored thread. We need to get a date between April and july that we can plan to have a sho nuff skeet shoot.
The name of the game is bump, and while it sounds simple, it can get difficult. Basically, you have a trap set up to throw a clay straight away from the shooters in a consistent fashion. All shooters line up and the first two shoot. Each shooter gets one shot, and the second shooter basically backs the first one up. If shooter A misses or leaves a piece big enough to shoot, shooter B can "bump" shooter A by hitting his target. If shooter A is bumped, he has to move to the back of the line and all other shooters shift up one position. If you bump someone, you get to skip being shooter A. Get bumped twice and youre out.

Get it? Got it? Good. Let me know if youre interested and dates that are good for me are:
Apr 27-28
May 11-12
Jun 8-9

And bring bout 40 bucks for.. er... fruit rollups and such

Bump is the funnest shooting game. We always play it in the few weeks before duck season opens.

Oh and if both shooters miss twice, the first one is bumped. The second shooter becomes the first shooter.

It happens more often than you think

If measured by hitting turkeys I'm damn good... If by hitting clays I'm okay... If by hitting doves I'm fricking awful...
