Toot my horn, too. :)
I returned to trap shooting nearly two years ago after a 15-year hiatus due mostly to health/injuries.

When I last participated, I shot in the high teens (out of 25). I only shot casually, never competitively.
Last year I joined my club's trap team in the lowest division (E) since that what my (estimated) average warranted and that's where newbies go.

By the end of the season, I was shooting in the low 20's, even scoring 24 in our last match of the season.
Last week I shot my first 25 out of 25. Banana_zorro

Our season starts next week and I am co-captain of the E team even though my average could put me in D or even C division, but they needed someone with at least a modicum of experience to lead the new newbies.

I love trap and skeet shooting. Never did sporting clays but would like to try it some day.

Congrats!

RE: Toot my horn, too. :)
Well done! I used to do then when a kid. It's bloody hard. One must really judge the correct deflection, take wind into account etc. 25 is bloody good!

Well, maybe the first one is, but 25's are far more common than holes in one.

I have had one hole in one. Smile
