Smokin' Shell Extraction

Skeet Shooting | view on black


My shooting buddies and I went skeet shooting today. I packed my break action 12 gauge shotgun, a few boxes of ammo, shell pouch, ear and eye protection, then headed to the skeet and trap range early. Along with the rest of my shooting gear was the other shooting gear.


After two rounds of American skeet and two rounds of Wobble skeet (one round of consists of 25 clays), I decided to do the other kind of shooting and was fortunate enough to get a few good shots.


Skeet shooting is one of the major types of clay shooting discipline. A variant of skeet called International skeet was introduced in the Olympics in 1968.


Exposure: 1/2500 sec

Aperture: f/4.0
