On another thread someone mentioned there being no clay fliers at EOT. Got me to thinking. When I started in '99, a few clubs had bird throwers and there was often a single flier during a match. Not every month, but not uncommon. I had never shot a shotgun before CAS and I always missed. Then my job sent me to a weekend at a 3M lodge in Minnesota that was basically being schmoozed for a sales pitch but we got to take advantage of all their activities and I shot about 25 boxes of shotshells through a Browning single barrel at their trap range. After that, at a CAS match I almost always hit the bird! But the practice has waned (I guess it's one of those "good ol' days" things) and I can count on one hand the number of birds I've shot at in the last 5 years. Now, this is central Texas clubs as I don't get out too much. I'm curious if many other clubs still routinely shoot a flier at monthlies? Charcoal briquette (or aluminum can) tossers are another matter. Hasn't been one of them around here in years since the only club with side berms closed down. I don't miss that at all because I almost NEVER hit the dang thing. Never had a chance to just practice and get the hang of it.
