    What was your hardest 25 straight to obtain.

    For me it was at the "5 Stand". The local club changes it every 2 weeks and the setter is a little on the sadistic side. He'll humble you in a friendly manor.


    As far as Trap goes, it took me longer to shoot 25 straight from the 16 yd line than it did from the 25 yd line. For some reason I'm more comfortable at distance.

    I ran my first 25 pair at doubles shortly after I ran my first 25 at singles.

    My first 25 at Skeet took a bit because of the fine tuning of my mechanics. I never realized that my stance would affect my swing so much.

    I haven't tried any bunker yet. I'm sure that it will be a humbling experience as well.

    My hardest was a 25 from the 27 yard line during practice (I was a 23 yd shooter at the time)......

    I'm still trying to run the last 25 of my 200. I've come up short 3 times so far. Twice it was the same target, 183rd. I didn't know it till I checked my notes. The other time it was the 186th target.

    Shooting 25 straight live birds. But, if you can do it, you would get a big pile of cash.

    I would have to go with the first for me ever shoot off, I was so excited my fingers where tingling, and and birds 11 to 20 where the wurst, heart palpatations and hyberventalating, "what a rush"!

    AND then to find that the third place trophy was the one I had dreamed of for years(a leather shooting bag), while the 2nd place is a pitcher.

    My 8 year old son Ryan's first.

    We figure over 10k targets to finally run them. I think it was the hardest for him and me!

    I think the 5th 25 on the way to 200 was the hardest. Takes a little bit to settle back in after the break from the 1st 100.
