Today I headed out to the trap range with my friend to get some shootin' done and try out my new camera. Sara was back in town, and it was our little tradition to shoot some clays. What better than a day after Christmas to break out the shotguns and nail some clays.

As we got there, the range wasn't too busy, so we were able to take our time away from everyone else.

That's my radar detector, I had an officer behind me with his radar on pointed at me.

Wow, coin operated trap range. That's pretty cool. No tipping either.

Good eyes! Prado it is. We gotta go shoot sometime, you always recognize all the ranges I post. :D

Yup, cool thing is, the thrower is voice activated also, so no one is controlling when your bird flies except you.

The 686 is a great shooter, this one is in 20 ga. so the recoil is pretty light. The gun is a little small in my hands, but for smaller people it works wonders. Also quite light, so most people that shoot it don't get tired very easily with it.

Well, I'll be...

An electrified, coin-operated, voice activated trap flingin machine!

That's seriously cool. :cool:

I'd have to go and bust clays a whole lot more often if we had one
of those things around here!

You mean you don't have to operate the infernal machine by voice!?!?

Got to love that big electoral state comfort!:cool:

I like the Coin Operated Trap Houses. We have the same voice call system at my club, don't have to worry about whether the trap boys and girls hear you call "Pull". Looks like a fun day for everyone (exept the cop who was looking to "pull" someone over, pardon the pun......

The voice activated throwers are nice, but if you start talking to your friends, it will start flipping out pigeons.

Black Majik, that pic of the O/U ejecting the shell and smoking is extremely sweet.
