Régionale 6 Trap Shoot @ Huntingdon

Club de Tir Huntingdon (Sainte-Barbe, Québec)

Half way to the shoot I almost turned around, it was raining so hard.  When I arrived at the border I could see it clearing to the west.

At the club the sun was shinning, but a few clouds.

The first squad out had calm winds at the start, but soon the winds began.

I've had problems this year with my trap shooting and the winds didn't help.  One target I didn't shoot (failure to fire) went hard left, with a sharp raise to the havens, hopped, and then curved right.  Hat's off to those who can shoot in that kind of wind.

Small turn out, but a good time.

No issues with speakers or machines (Pat Trap).

Had an excellent hamburger for lunch (thanks lady's for volunteering).

Clubhouse has a new roof and a wobble trap is on order.  They expect the trap to be installed in the next few weeks.

A wobble trap not only goes left right, right left..... It also goes up and down.  One target will just raise above the level of the trap house roof and the next, a hard right and heading to the heavens.  Your putting yourself at a disadvantage if you hold high off the roof.   Usually wider angles then in ATA trap (at least three hole).  You can throw a target the same speed as the ATA or crank it up and shoot at International Speeds (more distance - 70 meters).  The use of International Targets allows you to really crank it up as they are made for increased speed off the arm.  A fun game with many modifications on how it's shot, but at the end of the day the idea is to have fun no matter what format being used.
