    Going to shoot my first registered birds Saturday.

    Is it customary to shoot a warmup round? How about for Handicap?

    Thoughts?
    Thanks,
    Chip

    Some shoot a round of practice, some don't.

    I only rarely shoot a practice round before an event.

    Some guys I shoot with always shoot a practice round.

    It's up to the individual.

    I find I shoot better when I don't. My friend I shoot with finds he shoots better when he does.

    The is no right or wrong, try it both ways and decide what is best for you.

    I like 10 target practice fields. by that time the kinks are out and I can go on to my usual mediocre score.

    I would, but just for singles. And only if you sorta have a squad. Shooting alone isn't much of a warmup. Later you can decide to omit it to save cash.

    Learn the person to your left's call, so when you're down on post one, you don't have to take your eyes off the house. Good luck.

    Thanks guys, appreciate the input. My instinct was not to warmup as I usually shoot well right out of the gate.

    I would suggest that you always shoot a warm up round of doubles. You need to get comfortable with how the background looks and how the clay birds look at a different field than the one you are used to..Also a lot of people don't shoot too many doubles and the practice can't hurt...SMOKIT
