How Women in San Angelo, TX begin in Competition Shotgun Shooting

Shotgun Competition for WomenTo begin, you will want to invest in a suitable shotgun, with a 12 gauge being your best bet. Furthermore, you want your shotgun to be a pump action, semi-auto, or double-barreled, with a 26-inch or longer barrel depending on the type of competitor you will be shooting in. It’s recommended that you begin with #8-size shot for both trap and skeet shooting.

In trap shooting, in San Angelo, TX the birds (bright orange clay disks) are thrown away from the shooter from a small block at the center of the field. There are five positions in an arc from one side of the block to the other, providing the shooter with five shots from each position (25 total). The shooter is unaware of which direction each bird will be launched from, which gives her good practice in unpredictability. You will not always know where your attacker or intruder (or target, if you are hunting) will come from or dart to, so it’s important to practice with moving targets in San Angelo, TX.

In skeet shooting, there are two blocks that launch the birds, making it a bit more difficult. The one on the left side launches the bird from a higher position, with the right doing the opposite. They are called the High House and the Low House, respectively. There are eight shooting positions in a parabola (or semi-circle) from one block to the other, with a central position located equidistantly between the two. At each spot, the shooter will engage one bird from each block, or she can take on two at a time. The shooter also gets one extra shot which she can take from any position for a total of 25 shots.

It these early years in San Angelo, TX and everywhere in the U.S. there were a lot of misconceptions within the shooting industry about not only Women in general but also about the number of Women interested in the shooting sports. There was even talk within the shooting industry about not advertising to women as women would not understand the mechanics of firearms nor the nomenclature. One famous quote we found from the period: "Female gun owners are being cast as potential saviors of the pro-gun movement. Think carefully, ladies. Our combined influence can work to reshape American society. What do we want to accomplish and where do we want to start?"

In San Angelo, TX or anywhere in the U.S. there were no firearms manufactured in the U.S. specifically for women until Smith & Wesson produced the Lady Smith in 1989.
