Couple clubs close by are open....one never did close....go and shoot, with little change other than some don’t stand as close...most ride around the sporting course on clay carts sitting shoulder to shoulder and BS like always....

Shot at our club last Wednesday for the first time. Only restrictions were Club House was closed, only one person could enter at a time to use the rest rooms.
Shot 5 stations for Trap as we were at least 6' apart, skeet shootesr looked normal, and walked to each station as a group, no masks were seen while I was there for either trap or skeet.
Now we're in an area of the state that has very few cases and only a few deaths, so no one seems to concerned.

sadly, just because cases are low, doesn't mean the plague isn't present.
as its reported, the plague is moving like a cloud across areas that haven't been effected yet. namely the Midwest.
to drop ones guard can be a deadly mistake.
we just spent the lockdown period in the Ozarks. 0 cases in my county. some practiced distance and mask, some didn't. but then again, there could have been cases out there. just not reported. some of those old farmers are literally (die)hards and just probably dismissed it as a BAD FLU.
be careful. clay shooting isn't worth dieing for.
29 are dead in my home town here in va.
4 in ct.
my home in ct is less than 50 miles from the nyc epicenter. why is it so low?
they are still in lockdown and are doing the distance and mask thing.
sometimes careful living wins.

if this was true, they wouldn't put front beads on shotguns.

The really good shooters don't guess on where the barrel goes on the mount....They don't necessarily look at it, but most are aware of where it is at....


29 dead????? Ages and any underlying conditions....where were they living?

This thread needs updating.... I just started shooting skeet in a "fun" league at a local range.. ORSA (Oak Rdige Sportsman association) here in TN. wow is this addicting... I cannot wait to get to the range each week... I started out first round ever with a 28... then shot a 35 another 35 and now a 44... the guys there are super helpful giving me tips as we move around the field... been helping me a lot. This sure is gun...

A round of skeet is 25 shots. I'm guessing your league is a 2 round (50 shot) league and the scores you mentioned are based on 50 shots. A 44/50 is pretty good for one's second outing.
