Warrior On The Edge Of Skeet


I was just about to leave the house when I noticed a shotgun standing nonchalantly by a box of unopened clays.  "Put the gun in the truck," I thought to myself. 

don't shoot the fridge LSP, for goodness sake.
It's just a yobbish Mossberg Ulti Mag which I bought at a "Guitar & Gun Show" for $200. Why do those two things seem to go together? Whatever, the gun's been worth every penny; shot plenty of dove with it and the odd rabbit target of opportunity. It's a bit dinged up but that doesn't matter. Some people say it's no good with 3.5" shells but I wouldn't know, I just use 3" and the gun works fine.

So after a refreshing canter/hand gallop I unleashed the power of Mossberg against the hapless clay adversary.

I like shooting skeet. It's satisfying to watch them blow up.

Shoot straight,

LSP

Looks good, like it's been used and carried more than a few times, not some safe queen only taken out to go hunting for a photo-op with a political candidate. Depending on what's IN the fridge, it might need shooting! ;)

Around here, we only have gun and knife shows, never seen a gun and guitar show.

Thanks Mattexian - enjoyed fridge link.

I guess the logic behind "guitar and gun" is that you can always reach for your gun when the racket coming out of the instrument gets unbearable...

Cheers.

You can't say "yobbish" over here. :)

It's just a truck gun. Or a workingman's shotgun.

Most definitely a truck gun Chas - had plenty of good use out of the thing and it works every time, which is pleasing.

Would like something semi-auto; maybe an 1100 or an old A5? Have to shop on a budget...
