    Well today was a pretty good day to shoot for me. I shot my first 25 straight and this was my third time out shooting trap since I started three weeks ago. I love this sport.

    Rich: Congratulations. I sure hope your fellow shooters shot your cap. That is a tradition and should not be ignored. :) Ed

    Rich....That is a great report !! That is a pretty short time to be shooting and already broke your first 25 straight! I have a sneakin' hunch it was the first 25 in a loooooong line of them to come!...Nice job...Uncle Sam, Pa.

    Rich, Out of curiosity, what kind of gun did you use? My first 25 was with a Mossberg 500.

    Congrats especially on your quick acension to this level......but don't necessarily believe Bruce as to the next levels coming harder. My wife went 3 years without a 25 straight, and won a whole bunch of buckles by shooting a lot of 24's. Then came the first 25, followed very shortly by several other 25's, and a 50 straight..........just like unloader says, just keep shootin them one at a time.

    Congrats

    Congrats! I shot my first 25 about a year ago. A few weeks back I shot my first 75. Still grinning like a kid at christmas over that. I know the feeling that comes from your accomplishment. Enjoy every second of it.

    Thanks for the congrats, I'm hoping to hit a 50 straight by the end of October. We'll see how that goal goes though.

    Congrats on your first 25. I remember mine like it was yesterday. The first 50 and 75 came soon after but the first 100 took a little longer. It's fun working for each and I'm still working on 200 (3 199's). Anyway, keep it up and have fun!

    Well I shot another 25 straight today and then fell 1 bird short of my first 50 straight. :( Hopefully I can redeem myself Sunday.



    Not hitting a 50 straight is killing me.

    That's has been my strategy I look at it like 25 rounds of 1 target and it has been working great. The wind was wicked today and was causing the clays to jump around in the air. So for only missing 1/50 w/ the condition I'm pretty happy.

    I thought the hat only gets shot for your first 100 straight. Good job on the 25

    I'll shoot a hat for 5 straight if someone would let me.

    Wish I were back there in NY to pat you on the back...Nice job !!!

    What club do you shoot out of? I noticed you are in the Inland Waters Trap League, a tough bunch of competitors in that zero degree weather.

    Keep up the good shooting, Dave in SC (former Canandaigua, NY)
