    The son and I have a competition tomorrow. He is a really good trap shooter. I am a ok trap shooter but not as good as he is. We were at the counter at the range he was saying he could beat me with any shotgun any time. I told him to put his money where his mouth is.

    I said shoot with a skeet choke and I will use my full. I bet him $50. If you know anything about trap shooting shooting with a skeet choke is not going to work very well. I have never done it and don't know anyone that has. The guys at the club are really looking forward to this tomorrow.

    And the guys here on TFF are awaiting your range report. :)

    BTW, kick his butt and collect the 50 bucks.

    I don't know Van, if he is as good as you say he is, you might want to have that 50 dollar bill ready.

    I changed it to lunch from $50 as I didn't want the kids money. My free lunch was nice. He was able to hit 16 of the clays to my 21. He brought along his Benelli Nova also. He was able to hit 17 out of 25 with that. I don't know how he did it. 18" barrel and a cyl choke.

    Nice job!

    Only takes a pellet or two to break one. I’d like to know the pattern size at the distance he was breaking them.

    Hey, you’ve thrown off his cycle a bit.. Could be you’ll beat him next go around as he gets back into it with a full choke. :D:p

    He's one of the best shots in the club. I had to put him in his place. I proved my point. The wrong equipment can make a good shooter into a bad shooter.
