I shoot a 28" SP1, I would have been embarrased too but that was my first time shooting clays at a legit range...my SP1 is for upland game. Trap was a snooze-fest @ 19/25 on my first try...nothing compared to real birds.
I don't get how the RO knowing people is significant.. I know all the guys at the range I shoot at, that's just common. But the idea that some guy comes in and sweeps the floor with all the guys that shoot weekly is preposterous. Now I shoot twice a week, and my average is right around a 23. I know guys who can shoot that well with a pump, but I've never seen anyone do anything close on their first try.
