as both matters of preference and medical necessity, recoil reduction mods to my hard kickers have been a necessity .... over time I've spent more money than I care to remember on it .... some mods have proven to be effective .... some haven't .... as one example, a bolt action rifle chambered in 300 WBY has a harsh felt recoil and significant barrel jump .... my 120 some pound wife has fired ours from a rest without a problem ....

Oh forgot to mention, very reasonable too, and I believe he has side by side utility vehicles to travel between stations.

2nd Shoot :

on Sunday, July 5th I visited the Brookings Gun Club Trap Range for a second time .... sunny (OK make that hot) with light/gusty winds out of the south east .... I had a delightful time meeting and shooting with 4 young people who are new to the sport and have become enthusiastic about it .... bottom line, I thoroughly watching and shooting with them .... as usual, I fired 4 rounds of 25 .... I was happy with my scores of 22, 21, 23, and 24

Oh man, this brings back memories from about 40 years ago. A friend invited my Dad and I out to shoot skeet for the first time ever. There was another guy shooting the course with us and he wanted to let me try his $5000 Skeet gun. I refused ,thinking that if anything happened with it in my hands, there would be heck to pay. I politely refused and shot the course for the first time with my hunting shotgun, a Remington 1100, 20 ga. The guy that took us get a 25 and I beat out the guy with the $5000 gun when I, myself ,for the very first time, up at bat, got a 24. We were all mortified when we seen the guy with the $5000 gun, slam his muzzle into the dirt and walk away. I never went back to shoot again. That poor sportsman type conduct ruined it for me.

OUCH .... I hate to see good equipment abused .... the young fellow shown next to me in the picture above is in the 11th grade and is on his schools shooting team .... I'm not up on Beretta shotguns but his semi-auto was beautiful .... absolutely no clue as to its price tag .... he handled it well and I quickly became comfortable standing beside him in line .... I first shot trap about 9 years ago when our oldest son started his residency in St Louis and have managed to shoot at least once a year since .... I've tried skeet, 5 stand and sporting clays but I prefer trap
