Did some night shooting after dinner last night. Targets were easier to pick up that I thought they would be. Love the look when they break. Guess the contrast against a dark background really amplifies the effect! Definitely doing again!

I had my first night shoot last night and certainly won't be my last. The targets really popped except for lobs where only the rim was visible. I was talking to one of the pullers and they usually use a clay with no black on those but didn't last night. Breaks were almost always impressive. It also seemed easier to see where misses were missed. Also tried night skeet and that was intense. Wish the club did night trap.

What color targets are they using? When I shot at night out West, we found white to really stand out.

On mine, just the standard orange. They really "pop" at night, I bet white would really stand out like a baseball does at a night game.

I was introduced to American Skeet under the lights! It was fun with a borrowed gun, But not an experience I wish to repeat I was in USA on a business trip to MA for Digital and my host thought I would like a treat. Folks were amazed I could hit stand 8 with gun down!

Could not do that now!

We have a local 5-stand that is open 5-9 Tuesday’s and Thursday’s. It’s fun. Orange and yellow targets are the norm. They have to lower their tower to keep the bird in the lights. Some folks really struggle under the lights. Say they don’t have enough barrel awareness. I can’t blame my misses on that :-)

I too love to shoot at night. The only thing that I don't like is the loss of depth perception. As a target setter, I have fount the best target to shoot at night is an all orange bio. This way the target has an orange bottom too.

Please remember that I am an old time shooter and setter and I understand that the markings on the box may be a little different than when I started setting targets. We called a target that is all orange on top an OT. This target doesn't have an orange bottom. Every time I set a course these days I always get hammered about my color list. I am just too old to change my terminology. :lol:

I'm a big fan of night shooting as well, one local club by me does sporting clays under the lights, and they use alot of neon green and white targets, it's a blast, and it's really cool to see the breaks, the impact can be pretty violent, where as during the day you don't get the same effect.

One year I ordered two flats of green targets we kept in a shed between the skeet ranges. Used most of them up at night. Boy, do they show up good under the lights. Paul
