...would you register singles targets without even one practice target?
Had a very similar thing happen when I was a teenager.... My Dad asked me if I wanted to shoot a Super X that was for sale from a friend of his. I nonchalantly replied it didn't matter to me. If Dad wanted me to shoot the Super X seemed like a good idea I shoot it. Walked to the line for a 50 bird program (25 singles - 25 handicap). Ran 50 straight.I picked up a shotgun some years ago and took it to a trapshoot without shooting it first. Ran a 50 straight with it out of 50 and won the shoot. Yes it can be done.
