    Are you prepared ?

    Was at a fun turkey shoot today.

    Tied with two others for first place and a turkey on one of the 16 yard relays.

    I had been shooting a very light load of 1 oz of #8 shot, which works OK at 16 yards with my Modified choke.

    The three of us who tied for the turkey were immediately moved back to 27 yards for the shoot-off.

    Did not have a Full choke in my pocket nor any 1-1/8 ounce higher velocity loads.

    So I shot what I had.

    Stayed in for two rounds through the shoot-off, but fell out to the winner in the third round of the shoot-off.

    I just wasn't prepared when I stepped to the 16 yard line.

    .

    Had a great time any way. Brought a new, never-had-held-a-gun-before person with me. They had a great time shooting. They will likely be shooting on the next regular trap day. And I thoroughly enjoyed the day. I will just come prepared next time I step to the 16 yard line.

    One of the best shooters at our club uses a Mod choke from the 27. I'm just saying...

    Not the Arrow.
