I'll be there.

Wish I could make this meet. Are you still shooting your .410? I saw that you mentioned a 20ga. O/U, SXS Semi, pump? Have fun guys and gals.

Wish you could, too. Haven't shot the 410 since last dove season 2 years ago but I'm bringing it along; the 20-ga is a Rem 1100 my BIL sold me. Shot it once so far.

Right, I'll be heading out shortly - see you all there.

Sorry I couldn't come today. Had a small family emergency. Kids. Gotta love 'em. Otherwise I think we'd strangle them.

Apparently, my shotgun likes to be left alone for a while. That last time I had her out was for a 5-stand match 3-4 months ago. I think I shot 36-38 that day and that's the best I've done in 5-stand so far.

Today, my first round was a 22. The second round I shot with my daughter's 20 gauge and I think that was an 18. The third round back with my 12ga I hit 24 blowing right past 23. Then the fourth round was only 20.

I tried that burst mode on my old iPhone 5 and caught my daughter breaking one in half. I had to crop the image closer to be able to see it here because of the lower resolution on my older phone.

Here's one of Andy busting the low house before swinging back to get the high house bird that can also be seen in this image. I would have also gotten him breaking that one, but I did not keep up and it was out of the frame when he broke it.

These are the only two shots I took where I was able to catch them busting one. The burst feature is nice and I think I can tell from a couple with my daughter that she's a bit behind the bird on her tracking. The "shot" can't be seen in these images, but in a couple of others it can and seems clear that she missed because her point of aim was not with sufficient lead to hit the bird. She did hit 6 on the round she shot and I believe Andy's instruction helped her understand a little more of what's going on to be able to hit those. She hasn't shot in several months, probably since I last reported around here somewhere, and started off having cross dominance issues today. In the past she has tried shooting skeet left handed because she believed she could see the birds coming out of the high house sooner that way. I had either forgotten or never realized she is right eye dominant and that was causing her problems shooting left handed. Andy realized it right away and asked her to try shooting right handed and she seemed to be more on target than shooting lefty today.

Oh, yes I remember your post about the 1100. I seem to recall it was a standard sized receiver model. Am I remembering correctly? Maybe not; I've been in the sun all day working at our deer lease.
