Darn it, another almost -shot a 25 and on the second round missed on high 8 (twice ) for a 23. :(
Had a good day with the guys ,finished with 25-23 -24(20ga) 21 (.410)
If I ever shoot a 50 I'm going to sell all my shotguns and quit.

I shot a another 50 yesterday with the 12 ga. Missed 3H on the third and final round for a 24. I shot in front of it and had a negative thought when I mounted the gun. I should have re-mounted and collected myself. I always talk myself out of doing that.

A couple of quotes from Kim Rhode:

“Set small goals,” she continues, “and work to achieve them rather than focusing on trying to beat this person or shoot that perfect score.”

“You need to stand on that station and shoot until you can shoot 10 straight.” From there, you keep shooting it until you bust 25 straight and make it your easiest station."

I tend to agree. Shooting 50 (or 100) straight involves basically breaking one target at a time until you reach the 50 or 100. It is always and only, one target. I must admit to still feeling tense when walking on to a station with 50 or 75 straight on the line, but then I realise that it is still one target, the one I am on, that must be broken. Back to basics. But then, I don't shoot tournaments either!
Peter.

Lots of "smaller" clubs that dont have guys that shoot more than 2 or maybe 3 rounds of skeet per visit do count 50 Saturday + 50 tuesday for a 100 straight. Ok, that is not how its supposed to go but its just a bunch of hobby shooters.
Ive shot a hundred straight but it was over 2 different days. (one time) Im no less proud of that than if it were all one day.
