    That's what we need now on TV. If it worked than it will work now. Just what the shooting sports needs to do.

    The part were they showed shooting the Mossberg Targo was neat. Trap mounted on the barrel of a Moosberg model 42. Shot with a 22 shot shell. Reminds me of Boy Scout Camp back in 59.

    Great video, thanks for posting it. If you notice in the skeet shooting section,
    the guy doing the shooting was Dick Shaugessey. Dick was a super shot in both skeet and trap. Many time All-American on skeet, pretty sure he was on Trap teams also.
    He ended his career as a factory rep for Weatherby and some other companies.
    He used to call on us at our store. Really colorful guy...had lots of good, old time stories. Pretty sure one was when he was shooting at the NYAC championships, way long ago at Traveler's Island...he told how he broke a 197 X 200 in the championship after missing the first 3 targets thrown!
    Look up his shooting records, very interesting and impressive.

    Puablo - I you look close you will see that Dick Shaughnessy was shooting regular skeet. Once around the semi-circle for singles, then around a second time for doubles ending up at station seven. If you went straight you got a real option shot, i.e. you could choose any target on the field for your 25th shot. If you can read lips you will see that Dick calls for a low seven for for his option.

    Really nice movie. Can you imagine shooting trap with Ned Lilly and Charlie sparrow young, can't get any better than that? Years ago I asked Vic Reinders who he considered to be his toughest competitor and he said, Ned Lilly. I wish I could have been around to shoot back then. Thanks for posting such a good thread.

    I like looking at shooter's styles etc. and if you notice Dick shooting the round of skeet-not really anything fancy about the style. He really holds his left hand way out on the forend, with almost a straight left-arm. Probably kind of locked the stock into his body at point of impact of the shot better for him.
    The point is, style really doesn't mean a whole lot...it's the final result that counts! I know Dick was at the top of his game in his hay-day.

    Puablo - That was still low gun skeet with delayed pulls. That probably would have affected his choice of style.

    Senior Smoke - I got this from a skeet shooting friend, but when I saw the section about the GAH I thought you guys might like it.

    Good video, thanks. I did notice all the safety talk at trap and skeet did not include any hearing or eye protection. No wonder all the older guys at my club are deaf. Just something to think about how times have changed for the better. Wayne

    Wayneo - One of the first inductees to the skeet Hall of Fame lost an eye shooting station 8 skeet. I'm told at that time station 8 targets came right over station 8. Maybe, but if that is true you would be firing right at station 7 from 1 and right at station 1 from 7; and they still had trappers in the houses then. Scary.

    I absolutely loved this video. I thought it would be nice to embed it here on ts.com so that we don't have to read the stupid comments that non-shooters made on the other website.
