Skeet League

I got my firearms license in 2006 intending to do clay target shooting after watching it in the Olympics. High hopes back then I guess, and Cowboy Action fell into my lap before I even tried it anyway!

So here we are today, having shot once with Flat Top and Missouri Mae when we first stayed with them in 2013. Come join the Skeet League they said, it will be fun….or words to that effect.

We never did get around to doing it with them last year and the question was asked again this year. Well, why the hell not, I'll give it a crack. How hard can it be? When we do clay toss from an activated shotgun target I can smoke them.

Haa, Haa, Haa not as easy as that let me assure you. Jack says, no way he is doing it, not much success getting them in cowboy but is happy for me to give it a go.

Soooooo, first night up for it I get 7 (out of 25 shots per round) in each of the two rounds. Not bad but a little disappointing. Etiquette is different to cowboy and there are some really good shooters including my fellow cowboys and cowgirl that make up our team. I can't swear/cuss or get over excited which is funny and a little weird.

 

Last week, second night I only get 3 in each round, now this is a little deflating! 6 out of 52 shots you have to be kidding me! Lucky I'm good at cowboy.

Anyway our friends say, let's go practice after cowboy (this is yesterday). Yep righto. 3 rounds, 78 shells later, I had some success! But that was yesterday….

So tonight was league again. You think I might have got somewhere with practice yesterday! Slightly ecstatic about hitting 12 in the first round and 13 in the second round! Yippee! I might be getting the hang of this gig. 😉 not changing from cowboy anytime soon though.

 

Here's to the orange 'birds' today!
