Interesting shots David.
That is one crazy tall rib on #5's shotgun. What's the reason for that?

Dave,
It's a high ribbed Krieghoff K-80 unsingle...designed to allow you to hold a high gun position & yet give you a very clear view of the target as it comes to the gun from underneath

That's one of the few places you'll go where they have more money in their equipment than you have in yours. I never thought about being able to catch the shot column, great shots! No pun intended. shayne

Wild! I used to compete in 3 gun action shooting and for our shotguns we were always looking for a bead sight that was very low & close to the bore axis so we'd have minimal parallax to point of aim at various distances shooting rifled slugs.

Great images Dave. Was this out at Pinebelt?
No, Pine Valley. I will be at Pine Belt for the state shoot next weekend.

These were taken at Pine belt at the RAM Truck & Range event in March.

One of the last set with my D3 before I moved to the D4.

Fantastic photos, David; thanks for posting.

These bring back memories. I shot trap during the 70s (that's 1970s for you younger folk :biggrin:), and I still get nostalgic for those days sometimes. The guns were not as fancy in those days. I sold my Browning single-barrel trap gun last Fall after not having fired it for 30 years.

I'm too old for that sport now.

tell me about it...got onto this sport about 18 months ago - now my shot gun costs as much as a D4....

what with camera's, shotguns & skiing...it's enough to drive my financial controller crazy:biggrin::biggrin:

I wouldn't say that...I'm 48 & I'm at least 20 years younger than the average of most of the guys I see at the range!!:smile:

Yes, but after two shoulder surgeries and an additional torn rotator cuff, I can no longer point a shotgun reliably. And I think it takes some body mass to stand up to the pounding of a 12-guage shotgun, and I don't have much!

But I am impressed with your photographs. :smile:

Recoil reduction systems are a wonderful invention

Both my son & I have them - hydraulic based

Thanks for the compliments
