I stopped by Triple B Clays yesterday to get my car washed, and take a lesson from Ray Brown.

Yep, I said "get my car washed".

They have a mobile car wash crew in the parking lot, and for $15 they'll wash your car while you're out shooting, having lunch or smoking a cigar. I swear when I picked up my car it looked better than the day I bought it.

I've known Ray for a while, so with the state shoot a month away at Raahauge's, my buddy Leonard (Master Class) and I (B Class) decided to take a two-hour lesson to get "tuned up".

Two guys, two hours, $90 each.

We started out with gun-fit. Turns out my comb was in the wrong place, and LOP on Leonard's gun was too short.

Ray adjusted my comb, and added a pad to Leonard's gun, and we headed out to the range.

I won't give you the details of the lesson (that will cost you $90) but we shot, made adjustments, shot more, and made more adjustments, shot a little more, made a few more adjustments. In the end we both made improvements.

Wow, tough crowd :)

I'm always *****ing about the poor quality of people's posts, now I see where mine might lead to some confusion.

I said I was there to get my car washed, and then my first picture is of a hotrod car. While I'm certainly a geezer and a hotrod-er at heart, that's not me or my car.

Also the Rolls-Royce in the parking lot was not mine either. It belongs to a guy named Erik (see below).

As far as the lesson goes, I don't believe one lesson is enough to make a significant change, so I'm taking another one in a few weeks. I won my class in last year's state championship, and I'm hoping to do the same this year (never going to happen).

How you doin'

Triple Bs is a fun place to shoot and the staff is awesome. Brought my new beretta al391 and it was jamming up on my. Chad pulled it apart and greased it all up. Hasn't had a problem since. I'm thinking about getting a lesson, is it worth it?

It's always worth taking a lesson. The only decision is what kind of lesson to take, and that depends on what level you're already at.

If you're a new shooter or have never taken a lesson, take the skeet class they talk about here. Just know skeet doesn't translate over to sporting clays very well.

If you're more serious of a competitor take a private lesson.

Either way you can't go wrong.

I would say I'm a pretty good new clay shooter, I did a Moore and Moore shoot and hit 60/100. I like sporting clays the most, not super interested in trap/skeet.

OTH,

Sorry, I thought I already replied. TBC has a bunch of instructors, but the only one I'm familiar with is Ray.

That being said I'm sure they're all good, but it depends on what you're looking for. A group lesson is good for the basics, a private or semi private lesson is good for fine tuning.

My thing is I can't take a one-hour lesson by myself because it beats the crap out of me. That's why I buddy-ed up Lenard. He shoots, I shoot, he shoots, I shoot...

A couple of us will be ar TBC this Saturday at 10:00am shooting practice. You're welcome to join us.
