I’ve never really been around guns. I vaguely remember that I might have shot my cousin’s shotgun once when the boys were shooting cans or something. But part of me would feel better knowing how to use a gun – not for any reason in particular – just ‘cuz. So I figured skeet shooting was a good thing to add to my 101 list – a more fun way/reason to shoot guns, and learn something along the way.

I knew my brother would enjoy getting to teach me this, so I asked to do it when I went to visit. The weather tried to spoil our plans, but luckily, the morning of the day I was leaving was warm and sunny. We drove about 20 minutes to the Styx River Shooting Center and found it was pretty crowded already. Luckily no one was on the trap or skeet ranges yet. We started with trap, which was difficult and I hit a goose egg. We moved over to the skeet shooting which was a little easier and more fun! At the very end of our first round I finally hit a disc!! All in all, I hit about 5 discs. I was already sore by the time were done (not even going to talk about the next morning) which only shows how weak my arms are haha.
