is hitting both clays diffucult for even the most experienced pump shotgun clay shooter?
I started into clay target shooting in 1970 and have mainly shot trap but have shot my fair share of skeet as well as sporting clays when I get the opportunity.
I was never very dexterous or good at things that required quick, accurate hand movement.
When I first shot skeet in the early 1970's, all I had was an old Win M12 and I was concerned that I couldn't hit the doubles.
An old skeet shooter told me; "don't worry about the speed, concentrate on just getting both targets, and the speed will come".
I shot skeet quite a bit that summer took his advice. At first it "wasn't pretty" but I started consistantly hitting my doubles and in a few weeks, I was racking the M12 as if I had done it for years.
Although I own o/u's and autoloaders, I still enjoy shooting a pump, which I do frequently.
I have seen some people who just get the hang of it but if you really want to shoot one and apply yourself to it for a bit, you may be surprised how quickly you catch on.
