A few skeet pics

Postby AndyC » Mon Sep 04, 2017 11:59 am

I took my friend Stephen out to shoot his first-ever round of clays yesterday - so obviously I took him to the skeet-field (at Alpine Range). I was able to try out my Samsung S8 phone's camera, and the "burst" feature was very useful - posting a few as examples (while testing the Imgur site):

Looks like a good fun day shooting skeet and some great photography. :tiphat:

You don't know my wife. Some women want diamonds, some want gun accessories. Gun stuff is cheaper.
