Over the weekend, like I mentioned a few days ago, Ennie and I went trap shooting.

It turns out she took some video of my shooting some of the single-double-double round.

The way this game works is it’s like a normal trap course with five stations. At each station you shoot five shells for a total of 25 shells for the course.

In normal trap you get one clay each five times at each station. In the single-double-double you only go three times instead of five at each station. The first go-around is like normal and you get one clay. Your next turn you get two, one after the other – after you say “pull!” you get one clay, then when you shoot at that you get your next clay on report. The last round you get both of the birds at once.

This is a fun game since you don’t have a chance to think about what you’re doing. You just do it. If you thought about things you wouldn’t be able to do a damn thing. (This is what happened to me on one of the rounds by the way)

You’ll probably need to view these full screen to see the action. You can see the speed of the game. This isn’t something you can think about. You just react to the situation. You don’t know where the birds are going to fly or their elevation. You yell “pull!” and just deal with what you’re given.

It’s nice to just do and not think some times.
