Wie ein Chef!


After about 2 years of recreational shooting I finally got 25/25 at 16 yard trap.



25 down, now onto 50!

Truthfully I thought you had gone Holland and Holland and were talking about the need for a Pith helmet.

Is it a tradition to shoot your hat if you get a perfect round?

I definitely saw an Australian trap competitor at the Sydney Olympics shoot his hat after shooting a 25/25 in the final round. He had just won the gold medal though, so it could have simply been exuberance.

Hey now, he could also have been entering the Colt Single Action field and been needing a good Stetson. Or a 10-gallon.

Yes, tradition calls for the hat to be shot the first time you have a perfect round, and then major milestones after that. It's generally accepted that the first 25 calls for a hat shoot.

depending on the club you might have a hat shoot at 50, 75 -- but usually not.

The next milestone for a hat shoot is usually 100 straight.

In case anyone is interested here is how it works (at least where I shoot):

1) the scorer notifies the range staff that someone hit their first 25/25. a "hat shoot" is called for
2) staff gets the word out -- shooters from the other trap/skeet fields come over to help out
3) all shooters get into a big line with both barrels loaded
4) about 7-8 clays are put into the hat and the whole thing is wrapped up in rubber bands.
5) the guy with the hat stands behinds the line of shooters and throws the hat up as high as he can over the line of the shooters.
6) shooters unload both barrels at the target

in my case range staff determined that the hat did not sustain enough damage, so the whole procedure was repeated again
