    Does anyone here shoot trap, skeet or sporting clays? If so where?

    I shoot at Portland Gun Club, Cowlitz Gun Club and Rainier Rod and Gun Club mostly, and a couple others on occasion.

    Mostly trap, but kinda like sporting clays.

    I go out in the forest, I found some nice pits and they are biodegradable so that don't harm the environment. I have a thrower and it's fun up in the snow. Can't throw rabbits though because I can't find any flat grass but I am still looking.

    During the sumer you can usually find me 5 or 6 times a month shooting clays at Portland Gun Club. Great way to while away a warm afternoon.

    I was the Oregon State Sporting Clays Champion in 2003 for my class.

    In the same year I won my class in the US Open for Skeet....

    Trap has always bored me though.
    I did shoot trap with Eric Estrada, Joe Perry, Louise Mandrell, and Joe Mantegna in a tournament for Hollywood celebrities.

    Yes.............Hollywood types are gun people too

    Try Mitchell's Clay Target Sports in Gervais (near Salem)

    It is the best clays facility in the PNW.

    I'm fat and ugly..............name dropping is all I have:laugh::laugh::laugh:
    I'll be in Germany next week hob-nobbing with all the Euro-manufacturers. Perhaps she'll go:D

    There is a method to trap that involves the start position of your barrel when calling the bird. It makes it super-easy.
    Trap is a sport of perfection. To compete, you must hit literally hundreds of birds consecutively before you will be considered "good".

    Too formal for me.

    Sporting Clays on the other hand is a back-slapping, giggle fest:gun10:

    $30 launcher.
    $10 box of 90 clays
    $23 for a case of shotgun shells
    friends willing to go out to the woods in the winter...its closer than the range and there are spots you have to clean up yourself and one spot that I've been told the forest service cleans up every 2 weeks... I still bring trash bags for my shells/cartridges.

    You shoot games and win bacon or cheese.

    They usually limit it to regulation trap loads but, most out there do shoot a little hot loads.....
