    shoot skeet today

    went to the range to shoot some skeet today for the 1st time after the knee replacement the weather was rainy I was happy with the way I shot my swing felt right for the 1st time in a long time. i would have shoot more but I broke a extractor on my old Winchester super x 1 skeet gun, before the replacement I had lots 80% of the range of motion in my right knee after 2 months I have around 115% of motion 120% is a normal knee. I plan on shooting some more on Wed if the weather clears

    My pop has had both knees done and the only problem he has is getting in and out of the car. He's got hinge motion but no side to side.

    Nice to here you're doing better. I shoot real birds better than clays, but have done some country doubles and have always thought sporting clays might be fun. When we first moved up here there was a sporting clays range near me, but they musta folded since the sign isn't on the highway anymore. I procrastinated, my bad. I used to drive 100 miles from my old house to shoot IDPA just down the road from where I live now, but that range is closed. About all I've found around here is CAS and it just seems a little lame to dress up cowboy and call myself "Black Bart" or something.

    My only O/U is a CZ Redhead Delux in 20 gauge. It fits me perfectly, has perfectly regulated barrels, is wonderfully balanced, and brings me large bag limits. I didn't wanna pay any more for just bragging rights.

    Clay shooters are Such snobs. I have nobody to impress, but me. I have a Mossberg budget, after all.

    I have to add, I understand the "need" for stuff like Krieghoff and such for competition. Racing motorcycles is not dissimilar, you can only finish as high as the machine lets you. Skill means a lot, but you need the hardware to maximize your finishes.

    A guy in my old gun club shot competition, was good enough to compete for placement on the Olympic team one year, though he didn't make it. His dad ran "Smith Electric", an electrical contractor in Port Lavaca. They were the UPS drop off for a while. I was in there one day to ship a package UPS and he wanted to know if I wanted to buy a Krieghoff trap gun, a single shot gun for an unreal price that I can't recall. It was not the kind of shotgun a duck hunter needs and I passed.
