anyone know where i can shoot clays whether it be skeet,trap, or sporting. i do preferr sporting but just wanna shoot. i live in ephrata so i guess anywhere near middlecreek, lanc., or like adamstown. maybe even get a membership somewhere so me and my son can shoot together. he's only 9 but i bought him a 410 and he wants to shoot.

Shorty Waters skeet range, Sunday mornings. He is off Rt 272 south of Willowstreet, Mt Pleasant road. Nothern Lancaster Sptms club, off 897 a few miles past Middle creek shoots skeet but I am not sure of the schedule, I am pretty sure they shoot Sunday as well.
When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
I wouldn't recommend using the .410 to start a youth on shotgun sports. That is a master's gun. He'll get very frustrated. Better off starting him with a 28g semi, next would be a 20g semi. But, no matter which gun you choose, if he's under 100 lbs he will struggle handling the shotgun.

My son is 10 and just started shooting trap with a mossberg SA-20 in the youth stock version. The gas semi makes recoil light. It came with 5 choke tubes. It was reasonable. I got it on black friday at a great price but even regular price it is reasonable.
well i agree on my son shootin clays with a 410, however he is very skinny and cant handle dad's gun yet. thinkin maybe just cans and clays on a post just to let him tear somethin up. i was thinkin in the future for him. see i just won an overunder on a raffle and am very excited to shoot movin targets. all i wanted yet was an OU and now have the essentials for wing shootin. but thank you all for the insight on my son with the 410. maybe i'll let him shoot it till he can handle a 20 ga. and where can you even get a 28 ga. and ammo for it??
