Gator Chain Trap Shoot, Saturday, Feb 18

200 Singles at the Gator Skeet & Trap Club, Gainesville, Florida, Chain Shoot.


Weather forcast was calling for rain and thunder storms. Almost stayed home. Saw neither. Overcast for the most part in the AM, clearing in the PM. 80 degrees by noon.

A well run shoot!

As the first squads were ready to go and looking at the forcast, the shoot kicked off early.

25 targets per field!

After the last AM squad cleared field #2 and the houses were re-stocked with targets, squad 1 re-took the field and started the afternoon action on field #1.

No observed trap machine issues and didn't have issues with voice release.

The club is located behind the county airport. Shooters must cease fire when aircraft are approaching the runway or taking off. As in past shoots I attended, not a problem. Only saw one instance when shooting had to stop and that was only for about 30 seconds.

Lunch was served until 3pm. Dinner was free!

PHOTOS & VIDEO

Looks like the 5-stand received a rebuild from last year and saw a covered trap field on the far side of the olympic bunker.

Only one thumbs down and that was the lack of 1oz #8 shells for sale. Did not need them for the shoot, but did want to pick up a case.


A road side stand east of Gainesville. Farmer's fields behind the stand. Strawberries were $2.
