    Went to my local club tonight to shoot some practice. My 11 year old son has been shooting for about a year wanted to shoot with me instead of having me watch him. Well at the end of our round Dad had 24, and Patrick broke them all.
    What a great night.

    Very cool. Good for you guys! If it was his first 25-straight, I hope you got him a patch.

    That's great. You must be very proud as you should be. Keep up the great work. He will remember beating Dad forever.

    My son started shooting at 9 and he caught and passed me by age 12. The reflexes and visual acuity help them but mostly they don't think about it so much and just shoot the birds. The greatest reward with trapshooting as a sport is that we could do it together. We even got to putting small wagers on the first round of practice (which often afforded my son a bit of pocket change). Keep shooting together and don't be surprised if you get beat quite often!
