    My 13 year old nephew and I went to Blue Grass Sportsman's League, we have never been there before it was great. He had shot a 20 gauge before but never a 12 gauge and not at clays. He hit a few singles on the trap field and loved it. I shot some trap doubles, some singles, one round of skeet, and 50 rounds on the sporting clays course. All with my Citori XT trap, most open choke i had was mod but still hit more then i missed on the skeet range. WOW you have to lead those i am not used to that or targets coming right at you on station 8 lol. We had a blast and I now like 2 more shotgun sports. Will get some more chokes and be back there soon!

    It is fun shooting at clay targets no matter what brand of game it's called.

    There is a thread on now that asks "one gun for everything?" Now that you're having new experiences, you can help answer that question. Be versitile- and have fun!

    All shotgun sports are fun for me. Each game teaches skills that improve the shooters knowledge of clay sports. Every time I learn to break a different kind of target, I feel good. It is a small accomplishment, but I think that is what all of gun sports is about, improving and having fun!

    All of the clay shooting games have something enjoyable to offer. I would hate to pick a favorite. Most of us are fortunate in that we can to some extent, participate in them all.

    I shot trap, skeet, and sporting clays for years with an XT. It's a great all-around gun.
