    Flipping through the channels, I catch the Hulkster say "I'm gonna go shoot some skeet." Of course he was actually trap shooting, with his pop star daughter, she said "this totaly isnt old guy stuff, I could really see myself getting into this"

    Thought it was kinda neat, positive exposure. -Rich

    On the followup to that episode Hulk was asked why they shot trap instead of skeet and he mentioned that his daughter found skeet far to difficult so they changed to trap due to the ease of breaking targets.

    He blamed it all on his daughter ... yeah right.

    LMAO --- well at least the daughter and hulk had it correct on the trap being easier (for beginners although he didnt know that)

    My experience is that most uninformed people associate skeet with shooting clay pigeons and most have never heard of trap or sporting clays. In other words, skeet has better name recognition than trap. This is, to me, another dirty liberal trick.

    Dont believe that I would want to accuse "The Hulkster" of being a pansy, whichever shotgun game he prefers. Might not be good for my health.

    Saying the Skeet has more exposure than Trap is hard for me to belive, as a long time Skeet Shooter moving to the mid-west showed me that Skeet is by and far a much smaller community of people.

    Yes, there are many more trap shooters than skeet shooters. However, among people who have never shot either, or fired a gun for that matter, there seems to be an association with skeet and clay pigeons. Years ago, an episode of The Beverly Hillbillies featured skeet shooting. Maybe it is just me but few people outside of the shooting community seem to know about trap.

    I have heard people refer to the clay targets as "skeets" rather than targets so obviously a lot of people don't have a clue as to which is which or what is what ... We all know that wrestling is real and two 300# men can fly like eagles and not even hurt the other guy when they punch each other out, yeah right ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Years ago, an episode of The Beverly Hillbillies featured skeet shooting. On Andy Griffeth, too. Andy ends up losing at skeet, to a woman!

    If that was where he shot I bet Mike Batista chased him around offering to sell him everything they have available to sell.

    They did show the sign of the club he went to, cant remember it off hand though. But to the majority of Americans, shooting clay targets is skeet. Myself even about one year ago did not know the difference in the two, the only thing I had ever heard of was skeet. Now I try to make it a point to get friends to try shooting and shot them the difference in the two. Either way, they showcased shotgun sports in a good way. - Rich

    So Skeet is kinda like OPERA, everybody knows something about it, but few will get caught being there or doing it!?

    Hulk's daughter is HOT !!

    I liked watching her shoot in those 5 inch heels and mini-shorts - YEAH BABY !!!

    I'd spend a little more time at the gun club if I had eye candy like that to look at. It sure beats beer guts and butt cracks.
