Please try and bring everything you can in terms of a gun, ammo, and clays. A rough check list of what to bring:
- Gun(s)
- Ammo (birdshot #7, 7.5, 8)
- Clays
- Thrower if you have one
- Eyes and ears
- Shell pouch
- Beverages/snacks
- Layer up and bring a warm jacket/gloves/hat depending on weather
- Chair

If you can't bring some things, we will have plenty of stuff there. If you've never shot a shotgun before, an experienced shooter will try working with you to be able to dust a clay by the end of the day!

Gun rules to remember:
- Always treat a gun as if it was loaded
- Keep your finger off the trigger until you're ready to shoot
- Never point the muzzle at anything you're not willing to destroy
- Always be aware of you're target/line of fire
- Keep all guns unloaded until you're on the firing line

We need at least one person with the group to have a hunting license. If you're coming, please reply to this thread and note if you are bringing a thrower and/or have a license.

I'll be there if someone will be willing to show me the ropes. I've never shot a shotgun but I really want to try it out.

 

I'll pick up ammo (12ga best?) and clays and bring coffee and donuts.

 

If anyone has a 12ga pump that they are looking to offload I'll bring COEs just in case. Looking to stay under $400.

Shouldn't be a problem. Everyone is friendly and most don't mind sharing their guns so someone will show you the ropes and get you bust in' clays in no time. Get 12g bird shot or target loads.

Since the shootout didn't work out for Clinton I decided to still try clay shooting and headed up to Thunder Mountain instead. As expected I had a great time busting clays and ended picking up an 870 yesterday. I look foward to the next shootout so I can try it out again, unless I head up to Thunder Mountain again first.

I never heard of Thunder Mountain until now. It looks like a great place. I picked up a Stoeger Coach Gun a few weeks ago and was thinking about trying out some clay shooting. My cousin has been to Lehigh Valley Sporting Clays and I was going to try that out but TM is a lot closer (1h 15m). I may have to find a friend to drag along for the ride.

With everyones schedules the weekend is the only option to get everyone together. It is usually more crowded but whenever I go there on the weekends, I get there early and it's not too bad.

 

The 18th is already next weekend but how about that day if the 19th is the deadeyes thing?

    • As I mentioned in another thread, we bought a condo in Florida a couple of years ago, and have started spending some time down here.  We have not become residents yet, but still are able to enjoy a taste of life in a free state with Covid sanity and everyday concealed carry. Yesterday I purchased the Zastava Arms ZPAP M70 for which I have been lusting.  Bought it online from Atlantic Firearms and had it shipped to a local dealer.  When I went over to pick it up, he asked me for my DL and Florida CCW permit (if I had one).  I filled out a 4473 and a few minutes later, he said, "You're all set."  Holy crap!  No waiting days for an "instant" background check requiring a return trip to the dealer.  In just minutes I was able to walk out with my new beauty.  While I was there, a fellow walked in and asked to look at a handgun.  He checked it out for a few minutes, then said, "OK, I'll take it."  Same deal for him:  DL, Florida CCW, 4473, and out the door in a few minutes with the gun.  I should note that with the ready availability of guns in Florida, contrary to the hysterical fears of legislators in states like New Jersey, not only do legal gun owners not run around shooting each other, one rarely (like, never) even sees a gun. All that aside, the weather here has been great, the people warm and welcoming.  On days when it's a little cooler, with temperatures in the mid-60's, when we can't sit by the pool or go to the beach, the weather is perfect for golf, pickle ball, running and working out, or just hanging out.  Unfortunately, we have to leave "The Matrix" next week to return to Jersey for six weeks in the middle of winter, for some weddings and other family events.  But we get to look forward to returning in mid-March for another 6-8 weeks.  If any of you are down this way, be sure to say hi!
