    Sporting clays is a really good time. Think golf, but with guns, and not boring.

    donde esta?
    i did that for the first time not too long ago :big grin:




    "PULL!"

    i didn't know wtf i was doing so i'd be asking questions, and the microphone would pick up the noise and launch the clay

    :Owned:

    the next one we went to had a foot pedal instead of a microphone so that was better.

    I don't know anything at all about skeet, sporting clays, or trap. What exactly is the difference between the 3?

    In skeet, there is a half circle you navigate, stopping at each station to shoot clays that come from houses on each "end" of the half circle, in the general direction of the opposite "house".

    Trap, you stand on a line and the clays shoot out in front of you, going away from you.

    Sporting clays is where shit starts flying from/at you from all different angles (including shit rolling on the ground), and you gun it the fuck down. Imagine a japanese bukkake scene, only you are trying to kill the shit flying at you, rather than digesting it.

    Aren't you from NKY? If so, you know there is a mega badass sporting clays range out in Owenton (Elk Creek)?
