    Well,it finally happened,Got my 1st 25 straight tonight at Oxford Gun club.Was even tougher because with ten birds to go,my name was announced for their Long Bird Pot.Finished 25 straight,asked guys to shoot the Hat.,went up to the practice range where they shoot the Long Bird.Stood on the Black Top,I think the estimate is 30 yds from there,,put my Midas full choke in( I usually use a Carlson full choke)if I have my figures correct,the Midas is a tad tighter,called for the bird,"BINGO" got it.
    I have to give credit to my Mentor,Carliss Boweres foe telling me to learn my gun. Also Rich Lewis in Indiana, working,for pointers he had given me on the practice trap one day,and last but not Least,Ray Natale,gave me a small adjustment idea for my gun.
    It may be a Little Browning Special Sporting Clay Edition,,,but it still breaks them if you point the gun right.
    Sorry to ramble,but I was hoping for this day before the first year of shooting came around.

    Thanks for reading the post.
