Home Range

Found 6 results

  1. With so many registered shoots going on, I thought I'd try a new range in South Jersey and visited Quinton in Salem County and have since gone back. It's a nice facility overall, offering Trap, Skeet, Sporting Clays and 5-Stand. I've been there twice for Trap and Sporting Clays and both were busy, but not crowded. On the Trap field, the shooters were pretty laid back and friendly and the woman, Lisa, who was running the show was super helpful. I went with my son and both being new to Trap, I appreciated the advice from the guys just hanging out. It's the kind of place that gets a lot of regulars and they sit around and chew the fat and, when there's enough for a squad, or when Lisa is trying to fill a squad, someone will get up and join. You know there are regulars when a shooter goes down into the trap house to check on the trap or set it up for doubles. It was a pretty good mix of people, yeah, plenty of middle-aged and elderly men, but a few women and juniors as well. It was a very comfortable place to shoot and I recommend it, though it is a haul (for me) being so far south. They only have one Sporting Clay course as far as I know and it's nicely laid out in the woods along winding, stoned paths. We found the presentations fairly hard - definitely more difficult than the Woods course at Cedar Creek, for example. Lots of longer distance targets. I don't shoot skeet but they have a couple of skeet ranges that look to be in good condition. I've not seen anyone on the skeet range either time I've been there. Prices per round weren't bad - $30 for 100 Sporting Clays and $5 for a round of Trap (non-member prices). Clubhouses are nice. No ammo for sale.
  2. I was looking for a place closer to home to shoot some clays and stumbled upon Pine Belt in Shamong. Never really heard much about it on these forums. I'm in Cherry Hill and it's about an hour to Cedar Creek Sporting Clays (where I've been shooting). Pine Belt is about a half hour drive, so I stopped by today. Never saw so many people or a facility that large - they have something like 14 trap houses and 3 skeet fields, all nicely arranged and the entire facility looked top-notch. Maybe there was a tournament today, but it was packed. Lots of cars from out of state and campers, folks tailgaiting. I never shot trap, but I hung out and watched a few rounds. Very different from Sporting Clays. The squad action is rythmic, fast and very quiet (no chatter). Two other observations - while there was a good mix of men and women of all ages, there were a LOT of really old, really good shooters. That and I never saw so many Kreighoff guns in my life in one place. These were definitely no weekend duffers. Anyhow, I'm not sure if trap is for me, but I'd be curious to learn anyone's first hand experience with the club. Can you just go out and practice or do you have to squad up and play every time?
  3. I haven't shot a shotgun in years (and never clay), but I've got it in my head to give it a go as I'm a little bored shooting at paper targets. So where does one go to get started? Just go to a trap facility, for example, and order a rack of clays and just have at it? (That sounds expensive). Find a class or instructor somewhere? I'm in South Jersey and I came across Pine Valley (which doesn't seem to offer instruction that I can see). Also found a place called Cedar Creek in Millville that looks to offer personal instruction. Appreciate any advice to a novice (shotgunner). Thanks!
  4. While on a trip I went to a range with some friends to shoot the hell out of some clay pigeons. Now I think I caught a trap/skeet bug. Now, being new to firearms I know nothing about shotguns. Designed or intended for this use. I have heard they can run on expensive side. Thanks for any tips.
  5. So I know I started a thread before looking for a .38, but one thing I'm also thinking of is I have to go through the deal of getting a P2P again if I want to get one. One of the other things I was thinking of trying out is trap shooting, and getting a shotgun means I wouldn't need a P2P. So I guess I should ask (since I don't know much about shotguns): Where do I begin? Looks like most trap shooting is done with 12 Gauge, right? Anyone know of a cheap shotgun that would be good for this? Should I go for a longer barrel length (28" or 30")? I think I'm leaning toward pump action, rather than over and under or semi-auto. Thanks in advance for help & suggestions.
  6. What is a inexpensive 1st shot gun for a woman to shoot trap and/or skeet with? Should I buy her a over/under, side x side, pump? Is a .410 too small ? I'm leaning towards a .20ga. What brand? I don't want to spend more than $450. Thanks
