Yup, and probably end up shooting each other.
Well if you're sitting up in the bloody trees, quite possibly
p.s. I know what some of the wizened pros are perhaps thinking. WTH is he almost vertical? Yes, quite! That was an absolute bugger of a stand, and first time on it, there were two clays (skeets) a moment apart, incoming on low and slow courses to left and right within a gap in the tree canopy. By the time you got a fix, they were slowing, right overhead, and dropping. For the 2nd shot (as pictured) you were really pushing it...
I think I nearly blew the roof off the shelter/stand on that pair... but still a good challenge and a very entertaining day out
And no, honestly, I didn't kill or maim anyone!
-- FWIW on a day out like that I'd perhaps expect to do maybe 10stands*10 rounds, so four boxes. I seem to recall the cost here is pretty silly though...
Lovely gun that one, a Beretta IIRC
p.s. I just wish I was a better shot. But the fun bit is not only shooting, but watching your friends too. It can be quite surprising, some people who've never shot before are just 'naturals' at it. Others (me hehehe) who should be better, are pretty hopeless really.
Thx for the link SMS, I'll try and see if I can tot up a ballpark p/h cost, just in case it might be of interest ...
