Mid-Air shot

Post by Splash One on Thu 31 Mar 2011, 6:11 pm

Just thought I would post these pictures I snapped off of my trap shooting video... In many of them you can see the shot in mid-air before it hits the clay. Check em out them watch the video... please be advised the video has adult language in the las minute or so of the music..

That looked like fun at the trap range. What kind of auto was that that jammed after every shot? No doubles with that auto.I would have thought that after two or three right to left cake targets,that shot would have gotten boring, was that clip a loop or was every target a fresh clay bird?It will be nice to get out to the gun club once it warms up some more up here.

The Jamming was not being caused by the gun. I brought some AA Featherlite rounds to the range just to let my father feel the kick of a subsonic shotgun load. The shot shell doesn't have enough powder in it to work the bolt on auto's... but since I never load more then one shell at a time (unless I'm shooting doubles) at the range I didn't care if it stove piped...

Normally we launch from one trap stand and jump around to all the empty ones to add more angle, but the range was full that day. Not to mention we did launch clays far right and far left, they just didn't make the video because they didn't powder. Yes the video is a loop of the same 20 shots... for the majority I am using my OU 28 gauge.... this video was the first time I had ever shot it... or any 28 gauge. I broke 36 out of 50 with 7 1/2s.

OH and the wind at this range is rediculous... there was a cross wind of at least 15 mph....

Sorry I should have added all this to the OP.... and any day at the range is better then no shooting at all. but that shot does get boring with the 12ga Very Happy Chicken Dance

Trap

That's cool, I figured those we lite loads in the auto. I'm a big fan of the 28ga. and own a super sweet 870 wingmaster in 28ga. It's amazing how stiff new o/u are. One time shooting with my buddies new o/u we switched guns at a station, and when he opened my broken in o/u for the first time he thought it was broken because it opend so easy.Is yor new o/u a berreta?

Yeah, I hunted with Gadget Bob and the Texas Crow Patrol a lot this past season... Gadget Bob only allows the use of metrobarrels and featherlite loads when hunting with him.. so I have a couple hundred subsonics rounds.

Yeah my father and I were hunting for OU .410s... he found a sweet deal on 2 .410s, but there were also 2 28s there.. so he got the 28 instead.

The gun is a little stiff, I just had trouble with it because that was my first time in over 15 years shooting an OU. I broke my 28 cherry in that video. It sure does make boring trap a whole lot funner... I cant wait to kill crows with it.

have fun wearing that 28 in and busting crows with it. if you get bored of trap try another discipline (if you have something near) like skeet, 5 stand, or a sporting clays course. thanks for sharing the pics.

I thought 5 stand was skeet, either way I much prefer the high house low house to trap... I hate going away shots... but then again I hate station 3...grrr.

sadly this area does not offer skeet or sport clays at a reasonable price... this trap is at a BS shooting range.

i also have issues with picking up left to right targets as i am left eye dominant and shoot right handed. ive read a bunch of supposed solutions for this but so far most of them arent reasonable or i am unwilling to do. i joke around when dove hunting and tell people on the left to right birds i give a warning shot first and drop them with the second pirat .

right to left shot

Post by watch em fall on Mon 04 Apr 2011, 8:03 pm

I think everyone probably struggles with one shot or another. On a left to right shot,I jump my gun to 2 bird lead and adjust speed and lead from that. It sounds unorthodox but it works for me to keep me from shooting behind on that shot.

I am also left eye dominant and right handed.. I am so left eye dominant that basically my whole world is seen through my left eye... I went to the eye Dr and I am like 20/50 in my right eye. Look Up

yes...shot string is my friend when i use it properly (funny how i remember all about that after the occasional miss). i know some people that feel high velocity loads are the way to go. they feel you should splatter the target with hot loads vs using lead time and string placement. i tell them whatever makes them happy is cool...but i like saving money on ammo by using a different shooting style. one of these days i will be able to practice enough to burn that technique into muscle memory and defeat that damned left to right shot.
