Sometimes it would be 3 in front of us, but at a distance apart that would require separate shots and sometimes one to the left, to the center and to the right at the same time. We would have 10 clays total thrown and I consistently hit 9 of 10 for years. I always managed to miss one.
I know of other deputies that did the same or better.
Obviously, a semi-auto shooting bird shot, would probably be a lot easier.
The criticism is welcome and I hear what you're saying, but that isn't gonna stop me from saving up for a good O/U!!!
