    I was at the Ohio State Shoot today just looking around and I spent a few moments in the Dryfire Targets booth there at Cardinal. I didn't think anything about it as I thought it would be just for trap. Well, now that I have looked on their website I see that they have a program for skeet in their software. Does anyone have experience with this? Would it be good practice for a skeet shooter? How does this work for skeet? Thanks in advance guys!

    I had the dry fire system, and it worked as advertised. The skeet program (they also have some other really interesting and very cool programs as well) works very well - BUT you need a lot of space for it. Get the manual from the dealer and read it. You will be happy with it.

    Dryfire can be set up for many custom formats. skeet, sporting clays, trap. protection games, Almost any type of shotgun shooting. Great system and Bob And Tom are great support people. 4 years now no issues that I didn't create.
    If you figure how much the practice cost and how much his system is its CHEAP.

    I bought a 18' canvas at the shoot to hang in my garage to practice skeet. I'll let you know how it goes in the weeks to come.

    Hookedonshooting,
    I did some checking this morning and a complete dual head system, including trigger setup, is around $1300. My wife and I were discussing purchasing it to let my son use it during the winter months when he can't shoot (in Ohio). I also have a younger son who would like to try trap shooting and I read a testimonial on the site that a person put the system onto a BB gun for their 7 yr old grandson to try it.

    Our club has one setup for the Aim kids. The coach took a small stock off a old pellet gun and put conduit for a barrel for the little kids. works well. The idea of having the dryfire system here in Michigan is so when its -10 you can shoot and with your summer shooting cloths on. James if you have two kids get two barrel inserts they love shooting together.Ps you can also go swimming in Cinti. in the winter but I bet you don't
