Reno's Sage Hills trap club is closing down the 31st of this month...........
The Union had its last SC shoot of the year today and sign up started at 8am and we had the safety session
and then they passed out the free ammo. Four boxes of Winchester 3 Dr. 7 1/2's along with the clip board
and score sheet.
Weather was a warm 85 and climbing but no wind or breeze to help, we were all going to be happy when the shoot would be over and head back down the hill to the club house for a "Cold One" !!
Great time had by all and plenty of ribbing and joking on the "Good, Bad and the UGLY" that happened to all of use over
the course with all types of crazy birds, angels, speeds and that "Wabbit" was a screamer, going down hill !!
Hardest setup was a right hand teal at 30 yards going up at a 45 degree going away at 20 degrees and a low screamer
15 yards on the left, out 20 yards and going away and dropping as it went down hill.
Great free roast beef with chili and salad lunch for all, seconds if needed and then the prizes and raffle ticket draw for the Remington Auto shotgun as well as the awards to the shooters.
Great time had by all, lots of great gifts and we all hated for it to be ending................lots of great times and shoots over the years as well as many friends to rib and joke with. I am going to miss this place.
Oh, by the way, I rat holed those 7 1/2's for hunting season later this year and used up some light trap loads that would not work in the field and were loaded for just trap or skeet at the 16 yard line. 1 oz. of 8 1/2's at 1200fps with some old e3 powder that I ran out of about a year back. Even with an I/C in both tubes I shot pretty well and was very happy with the out come
with the others using the HDCP 7 1/2's and mine good to around 45 yards, energy wise. Even though a light target load it did well for me.
Hope every one has a great season and stay safe.
