Bit of a Different Range Report

Post by JEBar » Sun Jun 28, 2020 8:15 pm

I thoroughly enjoyed spending a couple of hours shooting Trap at a private gun club near Brookings, SD this afternoon .... fired 4 rounds, 100 shells .... its been just short of a year since last shot Trap at our 2019 gathering in Kansas City and I had what for me was 4 good rounds -- 22, 24, 24, 22 .... I do hope to have an opportunity to visit the range a few more times this summer

as one who has shot trap, off and on, for many years, I'm very happy with 24's .... that certainly doesn't mean I wouldn't like a 25 .. ;)

Jim, that's pretty good shooting. The best I've ever shot, was 91. ONCE! Usually, it's in the mid/lower 80's. What's your shotgun?

Good shooting. I would be very happy with that score.

I have 5 12 ga shotguns .... our 30 year old Remington 11-87 is the one I use whenever I need a shotgun .... as a hunter, it has taken deer, ducks, geese, squirrel, rabbits, wild dogs/cats, grouse, doves, quail, black birds, racoons, opossum, beaver, and I'm sure there are other critters I can't recall right now .... in nonhunting use it has fired literally tens of thousands of rounds at skeet and other such objects .... in addition to its gas powered semiautomatic action, it has a 3" mercury recoil suppressor installed in the stock, the OEM recoil pad has been replaced twice with the most effective one available at the time, its barrel was ported by Mag-na-port .... the reason for replacing the OEM recoil pad was to find a better one .... the reason that recoil pad was replace is I'd literally worn it out .... in thinking about it that's the only recoil paid I've used so much that I've worn it out .... this combination of up upgrades reduces felt recoil firing low brass skeet shells to a point where even when I was on blood thinning meds, I have literally fired 300 shells at a single session without so much as my shoulder turning read .... I can't say that after shooting a single round of Trap with any of our other shotguns (side by side, over/under, pump, semiauto) .... its old and has earned every blemish in the wood and blued metal .... the only part ever replaced has been a rubber O-ring that serves as a seal in working the action

That's one of the few things I never tried, but looks like you had a good day. Congrats.

I rarely ever buy a rifle, but when I do, it's a Henry.

Those are good scores JEBar. I dabble at sporting clays but that's about it.

kind words appreciated .... we do shoot sporting clays but in our area its pretty expensive .... at the club in Brookings they only charge $6 for a visitor to shoot a round of 25 birds (skeet) on their Trap ranges .... members pay $4

Jim, thanks for the shotgun info. Interesting improvements you've made. My only 12ga semi is a Mossberg 930 "Duck Commander Signature" model in camo and OD green on receiver and barrel. This a shooter. I don't get to the trap range as often as I'd like; maybe that will change.
