I shot Sporting Clays at a charity shoot at Kern County Gun Club on Friday. I shot a 87 X 100 one of my team mates won the shoot with a 90 X 100. Our team averaged 83.5 X 100 and we won the team event. We had a great time. I think there was twenty four man teams.Posted ImageEach guy on our team got a belt buckle and $50.00.Posted ImageThis is a picture of most of the belt buckles I have got from shooting Sporting Clays.Posted ImageThis is a picture of my Browning Ultra XS Sporting Clays gun, it has 30" barrels. About 5 years ago I had the G-Squared Shock Master put in my stock. The Shock Master is pretty cool it really lowers the recoil. It is air operated.If you ever get a chance to shoot a round of Sporting Clays, go for it. Sporting Clays is great bird hunting practice.

Good going Bob. :ninja: That's a nice collection of buckles you have there too. I used to be a pretty good trap shooter but when the price of gold and silver went way up in the 80's I scrapped most of my collection. They used to put gold coins in the buckles and most of the buckles themselves were made of sterling silver. I shot 100 straight in my first trap singles event. I was a Perrazi shotgun guy myself I still have a few of them that I won. But I sure like the stock on yours it would have been nice.

John, I started out shooting trap. I was 15 years old when I first tried trap shooting. I think I broke at least ten 99's before I broke 100 straight from the 16 yard line. I do remember the great gold coin belt buckles that they gave away for some of the handicap events in the late 60's and early 70's.Kim Rhode the Olympic gold medal winner had a Shock Master stock on her Perrazi. I started lifting my head quite a bit and I thought it was from all the years of recoil. So I got the Shock Master stock installed on my Browning and started shooting 1 oz loads at shoots and 7/8 oz loads at practice targets.

Nice collection of trophy buckles. I was never really into trap or skeet, but sporting clays (or 5-Stand) is a sport everyone should try as it's a real kick in the pants. SnS
