Shooting trap under lights is definitely different. I shot a lot of trap in my 20's and l still remember the first time under lights.
Didn't win any money that night
I haven’t ever shot it under lights either. Seth said it definitely makes a difference

So Seth ends the San Antonio Shoot with 2nd in the Lewis Trap today. He won a buckle, 3 flats of ammo, and a CZ 17HMR. All and all he did extremely well considering this is the first time he shot in any capacity since his surgery in November. Way to start off a season son!

So full results:
2nd in Lewis class trap, 7th in American trap, probably 30something in International trap.
Was way high score for his team sporting clays at 91 but his team mates put up scores in high 70’s low 80’s. Individual Sporting Clays he shot an 86 so didn’t place.

Thanks y’all, that kid is so happy. He’s been wanting a 17HMR and really likes the CZ’s. Crazy ironic that he won one and is just beside himself.

Eric, the fact that he "sucked it up" when he had to will prove to be the most valuable aspect of this shoot. That is a lesson learned for life. The 17 HMR is an absolute hoot. Seth is going to love it. You may have to mount a jackalope or two for him.:rolleyes::rolleyes:

Congrats Seth!

But gotta ask, before someone else does, where you in it for the college fund or did you slack off knowing that you had a lock on that 17 HMR? :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

WELL DONE!!

My son loves trap at night. He's just taken up the shotgun and loves trap. Good for teaching how to lead running game as well. Fun all round. He's not in Seth's class yet well done mate.

Thank you and good luck to the young man. I hope he sticks with it. The shotgun disciplines are a fantastic sport.

You should be very proud of your boy .
That is 1 talented young man you have raised.
In times like this , our children need all our support , and just need us to be beside them .
By the way , is that over under a Browning brand 1 ?

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
