Well, it wasn't a fluke
I have been almost overwhelmingly busy this summer at work, with Scouts, with kids, and with Lions and I have barely had time to shoot sporting clays. I try to shoot 3X per month in the summer months, 50 rnds per night, but time has not allowed this and I had to shoot 100 rnds the past 2 rounds I shot, 2 seperate league shoots. We usually have a month to shoot 3 rounds and your best two rounds are your score before the range is changed to different presentations of the targets. I shot well but misheard my puller when I shot last month and thought I shot a 43 and a 45, The local paper posts our league scores and according to the paper I shot a 48 in one of the rounds that week! A personal best. I also shot a 45 for a total of 93/100 for last month, I did not confirm that until tonight when I talked to my puller, I still thought it was a mistake. Well, tonight I shot a 47 and a 45, 92/100, my 2 best months back to back. It took 10 yrs of shooting clays and switching from an 1100 to a Benelli Montefeltro, but I seem to be hitting a groove this year. I hate to disparge my 1100, but I seem to have steadily improved from a low to mid 80's shooter to a high 80's low 90's shooter after a few years of shooting the Benelli. I don't know, maybe after 10 yrs I have seen all the presentations I can see at the course I shoot at. Cloudy skys and no wind definitely improve my scores and that was the case the last couple nights I have shot so maybe some luck, either way, a personal best:cool2:.
