    I messed up and originally posted this on the wrong gallery (people, weddings,etc.).

    I was competing at a local trapshooting tournament the other day. When I got through shooting, I put my shotgun away and started shooting with my camera (it doesn't kick as much).Ha!!! We were shooting clay targets, not critters. No drinking or horseplay just good competition and clean fun. Here is a picture I put together of one of my friends shooting. Pictures were taken with Nikon D70s and 180mm f2.8 lens.

    very impressive!
  8. Neat. Like the Model 12.

    I was a serious trapshooter at a younger age, but took up distance running and lost too much weight to stand up to the pounding of a 12 gauge.

    good subject! we had a range close by to my house for a short while, and when I was at Nokia, was 10 minutes from another range. but no more :( 
    I shoot a beretta semiauto, mostly skeet.

    Nice shots! The center and upper right are my favorites. The wadding heading out towards towards the clay pidgeon is cool. Haven't been myself for a couple years, but it is a lot of fun.
  12. Nice shots there Doc. Looks like the 180mm is doing you well. I like your layout.

    I enjoy shooting skeet, and sporting clays. I have fun with my 16 gauge Remington 870. "PULL!".

    Thanks Don and George

    I enjoy shooting skeet and trap. But in my area there are not many competition skeet shoots. I have a cousin that is a member of the Memphis Gun Club, he's been after me for the last two years to come down and shoot sporting clays with him. I'm hoping to work it into my schedule sometime this summer. I know I'll have a ball shooting sporting clays.:biggrin:

    I'm going to a registered trapshoot at Henderson, TN this Saturday. In between shooting events, I plan on setting my camera up on a tripod and setting the appeture to the highest number, to hopefully get the shooter and the target in focus while the target is breaking.:wink:

    Any tips on technique would be appreciated.
