    Finally did it. 25 Straight! I have been enjoying the sport since around February and have come close a few times. By my last shot I had to really work hard not to shake. It Happened at the North Jersey Clay Target Club durring the Northern Zone Shoot. Couldn't ask for it to happen at a better place. Next stop 100 Straight.

    awesome job these accomplishments seem to just happen. My son got his 50 patch before me! I was super happy for him! Then one night shooting the summer league I ran 97 straight. Now you have your 25 there will be many more to follow.

    Keep Shooting Find a Kid and drag him along too!

    Thanks all for the remarks and words of encouragement. Shootsun, you will get there soon I am sure. I did receive a patch but no one shot my hat. I rarely wear one.

    Regards,

    It sure is exciting isn't it!!!

    They do come easier and then you go for 50's, and 100's.

    PS Get a damn hat!! If Bill pulls off your underwear we will pee out pants laughing.

    Congratulations, the first one is the hardest. When you are shooting well they seem pretty easy, when you are in a slump they are still hard. You need to come to Blue Grass Traps, bring your hat or purchase one here, and we will shoot it for you. If you are nice fellow we will ask that you remove it before we commence firing. My buddy usually flinches so beware, nothing is safe.
