I used to shoot lots of registered trap and skeet when I lived near by it. Now I have one of those electric Do-All traps when I get the urge.

As for comp pistol, Distinguished Pistol Shot, 1991 President's 100. (12th place), NRA Indoor High Master, NRA Outdoor Master.

I'm a member at Greenville(PA) Sporstmens club. http://www.greenvillesportsmen.com/ They have 3 skeet ranges there and are open Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. I occasionally shoot skeet at EOCC on Sunday mornings. http://www.easternohiocc.com/

My daughter shoots some registered trap, she shoots mainly out of New Middletown Sportsmens club.

I like sporting clays but the 2 closest public courses are over 1 hour away. Scattergun reserve http://www.scattergunreserve.com/home.cfm
Or BTM http://btmclays.com/

I used to shoot skeet at Greenville when the Camerons ran it. Loved their July 4th shoot.

Not much into trap (tend to always crawl up over a straight away) and sporting clays is a bit too much walking in the woods for me.

I enjoy pistol in the winter because it's indoor but never got into going to Camp Perry or anything. The club I go to has some great shooters and they offer about as much competition as I can stand.

I shoot on 3 trap league's Tuesday night and a trap league on Thursday nights I also shoot some times on the weekends when there are shoots to go to. I am a ATA member.

I also love to go to long range shoots out west.

Does anyone think that there might be any interest in a specific forum just for skeet or clays in general?

I think it would be good, but I not sure how many guys on here that really get in to that kind of sport.

I shot over at Black Wing last night on a trap league and broke a 47 in all that wind last night. When I left at 8:30pm and I was cold.

I like to shoot sporting clays but due to a few factors I don't go often, the biggest one being lack of courses open to the public around here. Even if they were open I probably wouldn't go more than 6-7 times a year. too many other hobbies.

I know what your talking about.

I also do a lot of long range rifle shooting around the country. I won a lot of money last year shooting trap and also rifle shoots.

I shoot some time 3 to 4 night a week. Getting around to head to a trap shoot tonight on the other side of the state just about up in Michigan.

Yeah, there's some good money in trap shoots. Not so much in skeet. I once wrote a computer program to run NSSA shoots and it compared the cost to the prize money including Class Purse, etc. In skeet there is usually only one guy that makes enough to cover his entry fees and we didn't include the cost of shells. At a big shoot, there might be 2 or 3 that actually make money, but you certainly can't get rich shooting skeet.

I'm also jealous of you. Health reasons have kept me from the fields, but I used to LIVE at my skeet club. Shooting up a flat a night 3 or 4 nights a week is what it takes to compete. Practice, practice, practice...

I like to shoot sporting clays down at Hidden Haven shoot preserve down in Sugar Grove. It's a nice course that runs through the hill sides and the woods. It's a family run business and they make you feel like part of the family when you walk in the door.

I don't get down there as much as I use too, but it's still a nice day away.

Hidden Haven
