My father and I just got serious into trap shooting as it apparently runs in our blood (Ken Robertson, father of Scott Robertson, is my dad's cousin). In any case, we've had about 4 weekend outings, each about 4-6 rounds of trap. Our first outing was at the Sunnyvale gun-club where to our surprise we were hitting between 18-21 each round at the 16yd line; not bad for the first time out. On a tip from one of my friends, the next outing we headed to Coyote Clays in Morgan Hill which has a self-serve trap range which seemed ideal for target practice. Unfortunately, at this location both my father and I did quite poorly at the 16yd line, hitting about 10-12 out of 6 rounds. We've been back to Coyote Clays 2 more times since then and are doing better, but still nowhere near as good as we did at Sunnyvale; we are both streaky and not consistent. Without any proof to back it up, my Father and I both swear that Coyote Clays' trap range feels like the birds are being sent out a lot faster and perhaps at a higher angle than Sunnyvale. Does anybody know if this really is the case, or was our first time out just beginners luck for the both of us?
