Lyle (at UltiMAK) and many others have been wanting me to shoot clay pigeons with them for a long time. I can only think of one time, probably 12 years ago, when I have even seen people do it live rather than in some video. Lots of friends shoot sporting clays and trap, but I’ve never been to the range with them despite lots of invitations. It just wasn’t that interesting to me. I’m not interested in shooting birds for food. And my shooting activities are not intended to be entirely recreational. But Lyle got me out to the range yesterday. I brought my SAIGA-12, ammo, and some clay pigeons Ry gave me along with another pile that Lyle had. It sometimes took three shots but I got the first ten or so. As I got tired it got more difficult and I started missing. And when I tried doubles I couldn’t even hit one of them. But I went through probably 100 rounds and 50 targets. It was fun.
Now tell me what the practical aspect of it is for me.
