International skeet- what is shot in the Olympics. Targets are faster, have a 0-3 sec random delay after you call pull, gun has to be in low ready and can't move until target is thrown, and you shoot a double at every station.

I typically don't go to hotwells, they don't have anything I don't have setup at my family's ranch, we have a full spec sheet field with briley throwers. My dad is trying to get me to join a league with him down there though.

kman, nobody throws International skeet targets in the area, Dalla Gun Club can but they rarely do. Colorado Springs is about the closest venue. Briley does not manufacture or sell target throwers, Jess concentrated only on shotguns and making them shoot better with their chokes or tube sets. In recent years they they have move into other firearms.

Glad to hear Hot Wells is still around, I used to go to Turkey Shoots there back in the early 80's

Sounds like you're on the right track.

You are now ready for Sporting Clays

Putting some skeet chokes in should get you up to around 20. That'd be respectable for a guy that's never shot skeet.
