If you can get 2 spots for the 30th, my wife and I would like to join. We just picked up a Remington 870, in jail at the moment.. 9 more days till we can bust her loose.

We are both beginner shotgunners :) Neither of us have shot skeet before, and I think it would be real beneficial for both of us.

We got the 870 Express, so we will have to use a different shotgun as we have the 18" I believe.

Please PM me if there is space available for both of us.

If only 1, then maybe just my wife can take the class.

S4alex and Gotshotgun

On the 30th I have 5 intermediate shooters....I'm going to try to help them improve scores.

I'm willing to open up another Clinic the following weekend on 5/7 if you three are in.

There will be a break and the next ones will be after Memorial Day

What say ye......want to do the 7th?

s4alex 04-11-2011 8:48 PM

That sounds good to me... my wife and I are in..

We will be sharing a shotgun, if you have an extended barrel for a Remington 870 then we can use our own. Hoping that you do, as we would like to get familiar with ours. If not, we may have to use a loaner.

Clinic 4/30/11
 
Hi Lou,
Per our chat I'd like to add another experienced shooter to the 4/30/11 clinic, Tom will be joining us.

BTW
I understand that you run these Clinics in order to help fund the juniors Clinics. I'd like the oppertunity to help pay back for the tuition I am to receive by offering my assistance with a junior Clinic. Please do let me know if I can be of assistance.

I can't wait til the 30th....

Thanks

Barry

Barry 05-06-2011 6:57 PM

Lou,
We all had a blast at last weeks clinic. Lou, thanks for all your time and effort.
Barry, Eric, TJ & Tom


To anyone considering attending. Your in good hands regardless of your (in)ability. After range safety, all the basics are covered. Judging and altering the fit of your shotgun if you brought one. Testing the fit of a shotgun you might purchase. Then how to prep for, find and shoot the elusive skeet themselves. Wonderful fun!



Location, Location, Location!
What a great place to shoot, very picturesque. Being over the water it is steel shot only.

Art,

There will be a clinic in late July......Watch for a post about 2 weeks before.

The techniques (mount, leads, swing, ect) taught at the clinic are universal to all wingshooting...we will be practicing using the game of Skeet because the club lets us have a Skeet field all to yourselves for the whole afternoon.

NorCal Einstein 06-11-2011 10:49 AM

I'll be waiting for the next announcement! I've always wanted to learn how to skeet shoot, but never actually made any effort to. This seems like a great way to do so!

At any rate, thanks for this service!

redrex 06-11-2011 10:20 PM

I just wanted to say thanks to Lou! He made it a lot of fun today and was extremely informative. It was a great change of pace from the usual, sitting at the range and just piping targets.

Thanks again. I'm spreading planning my next outing.

Anyone interested in hitting up that Livermore range?

doubleactiononly 06-17-2011 11:03 AM

Props to Lou for running this. He's a great teacher and I learned a lot while having fun. Now i just need to buy a shotgun!

1911_sfca 06-20-2011 3:29 PM

Looks like a lot of fun, a friend and I would love to attend one. I have obligations during the weekend daytime; what's the chance you might have a weekday opportunity? Or weekend, evening?

Thefeeder 06-20-2011 7:24 PM

Range is open Wed, Sat and Sun 11am-430pm


Sometimes I shoot a bit on Wed afternoons if work is slow....if you want to come down and pick at my brain, your more than welcome.....Clinics are a Sat gig, as it takes me most of the day.

advocatusdiaboli 06-23-2011 3:57 PM

I am in and maybe I can talk the wife or one of the daughters into it. I'd likely shoot 12 ga, they'd shoot 20 ga probably. If I need to bring steel shot, I can do that. Let me know how many. The only thing that would stop it is I have Range Safety Officer Duty on the 23rd of July—hope you don't pick that day.

smurfette, don't short change yourself by going to half the clinic, just go with the flow and make time!! Read all the feedback from previous shooters, it will be well worth the money spend for the knowledge gained!!
