And if you are new to the game, I will share with you some lessons I learned the hard way, so you don't show up your first time looking like the Polish FNG that I looked like MY first time....
Equipment is minimal to start, but besides your shotgun, hearing protection and ammo (25 rounds per round, the 250 round boxes of #8 shot 1 oz loads for $25 at WalMart work FINE, and give you enough for 5 rounds of either Skeet or Trap...) some kind of shooting box or range bag to CARRY your ammo and hearing protection in....
....and MOST important, either a "Trap Vest" or a belt 2 pocket ammo pouch, and MONEY.
(Usually around $5-8 per ROUND to shoot....)
You can buy a cheap ammo pouch at Walmart when you buy your ammo, it even comes with a web belt.
It has two pockets, one holds the box of shells, you leave them in the box, makes it nice and handy, and the big pocket is for your EMPTIES.
It is considered rude and unthoughtful to leave your empties on the ground, even if you do NOT reload, so you WILL be picking them up.
And empties do NOT fit nicely back into the original box! LOL
That is why, for trap anyway, guys prefer guns with extractors not ejectors, and will fit little 'brass catchers" to their pumps and autos to "stovepipe" the empty, so they can simply pluck it off and drop in the pouch, and use them as single shots.
You also have to learn to open, and reload quickly, becasue it moves right along and guys like to get a rhythm going, so you don't want to be the one NOT ready when it is your turn. (Again, Trap draws the "anal retentive' "perfectionists"
more than the Skeet guys, in my experience, Skeet guys will cut you more slack...)
On the trap line, say with a shooter at every station, when the command is given, usually "Ready" the guy at station #1 shoulders, aims at the LEFT corner of the trap house, and says PULL, and shoots....the second shooter is now ALREADY aiming a little to the left of the center of the house, and immediately says "Pull!" pretty quickly after the first, and it goes down the line....you HAVE to be ready and aiming for your SECOND shot before shooter #5 says "Pull," and you will say "Pull!" right after he does....for five shots. Then you will make safe, quickly rotate to station #2, and repeat, only the NEW station #1 guy will start.....
It's not really RUSHED, but don't be the guy dilly dallying.....
Which is why you use the VEST or AMMO pouch....kicking your empties along with you or having the plastic WalMart bag you tied to your belt RIP and spill all your empties out on Station #4 SCREAMS "F-ing NEW GUY!!!"
Trust me, I KNOW!
