    We sure did Bobski.We survived for another day.Once I figured out how to throw them we got the hang of it pretty quick.You can definetly go through alot of shells pretty quick.We are gonna get the thing that shoots them this weekend and go back at it.I feel a competition growing with my boy.

    probably a full choke. most of those meat guns were full. means you can shoot over 40 yds no problem. which means 'trap' is the game for that gun.

    give these guys a call. it might save you the cost of a thrower and save your arm. nothing beats just pushing a button!
    tell em bob from vanzant mo sent you!

    How close to Sikeston mo are ya.I was on my way to texas about fifteen yrs ago and my alternator went out right at dusk and I was just past the sikeston exit so I turned around and made it to autozone with 5 minutes to spare.As soon as I pulled into the lot my battery died.I went in and bought a new alternator preparing to put it on in the dark and the manager looked at the other clerk and said go on and he pulled out a dufflebag full of tools and had it on in 10 minutes.I tried to give him a 100bucks and he said no I cant take your money but if you want to write my big boss a letter and tell him I helped ya.I said ill write him 2 letters.I had my wife and young daughter in the car so it meant the world to me Ill never forget it.

    look into local shooting clubs or ranges. I got a family membership for $55. they have a clay thrower set up real nice along with 25, 100 and 200 yd rifle (covered protected line) a club house and 25yd indoor pistol

    Hey I just had a dumbass attack lol.Thanks a bunch we will check this out.I know my cousin is a member there.I thought it was just a shooting range.I didnt know the did clay shooting.Im learning so bear with me.My dad never would let us have guns so I didnt have anybody to learn from.So Ive been learning on the fly.Tackling one thing at a time.The good thing is even though my dad isnt a fan of guns.Let me back up hes not anti-gun hes just afraid of them.He gave me a chance to shoot at his place which is 5 acres of flat open land.Once we proved we were safe he dont mind that we shoot.

    I bought the thrower thats spring loaded ,called the competitor,you just pull a string and they go.We had a blast tommorrow I will take pictures.My mom and dad even came out and watched and thought it was neat.I asked my dad if he wanted to try and he said no but thats okay.:)

    be careful of your face and hands. dont bend over to get something in front of that thrower. and dont let anyone walk in front of it when its cocked.
    have a great time!
    i smell and indiana to mo. road trip brewing!
    bring the family!

    i own the range. its my backyard.
    now you know why i offered up my range for a midwest tff bbq/shoot for free. its all set up. all anyone has to do is just show up. i'll be there all of july.
    some people build pools in their back yard. the previous owner built himself a range for his wife to shoot. no joke.

    ingalls home. yep. probably one of those washington slept here things.:)
