Default SoCal Skeet clinic: 2-8-14 debrief

The story seems the same every time: the class was nearly full, I met a large number of very cool people for the first time and met again with some cool people I've met before.

Many people had never shot before, other people had shot, but never shot skeet, and by the end of the day everybody had reached an admirable level of skill.

It's like a giant factory that takes in random people and generates skeet champions.

On a related note, Coach Z tells me he's had students with one leg, with no legs, with one eye... There's literally a place in the class for anyone who wants to attend.

We did notice (not only in this class, but in others) that the female students seem to pick the game up much faster than the males. My personal theory is the weight of my junk is throwing off my shot...

I'm honestly stunned, between myself and RayPDA there have been three classes where someone has offered either full ride, a significant discount, or free ammo to a new skeet shooter, and to date I don't think anyone has actually taken us up on our offers...

The class is always fun, you learn a lot, the class is nowhere near as expensive as it should be, they are well suited to working with brand new shooters, and the new woman training as a cashier in the pro shop has about the prettiest eyes I've seen in person...

Sorry to lecture, but even if you have sights on moving into another clay sport or tactical shooting, this is an excellent introduction to shotgun shooting, and it really should be a lot more popular than it is...

You weight distribution is fine compare to some of the female students we've had come thru the clinic!!!

Females tend to listen and follow instructions better (if they want to learn) ... As a result the progress made by female students are usually better the then male counter part!
