There are many different forms of target shooting that people do. Cowboy Shoots, Long range, millitary, offhand , formal, primitive, etc... Lets hear from you all on the type that you participate in and what it consists of.

Well, I don't compete in any of those, I do shoot in skeet and trap competitions year round for the most part. Trying to get into sporting clays.

Shoot in a weekly skeet league year round. Shoot a lot of trap for fun. Love sporting clays, i just don't shoot it often enough.

Shooting sporting clays is a great way to spend a day having fun with friends. I just wish there was more gun clubs here that scheduled more of them. I shoot alot of trap and skeet in the off season to keep my eye sharp and on target.

i shot IDPA for a couple of years but quit about 6 months ago. i knew it was time when i missed 3 events in a row because i wasn't prioritizing it. i did enjoy it for awhile but it got somewhat mundane. there are only so many "scenarios" you can do before they all kind of run together.
