New to skeet

Is there anywhere around Pittsburgh to get lessons to shoot skeet?

I've been going to the club, and members do try to help me but i dont seem to be getting much better. Ive only shot twice so far and break maybe 5-8 shells per round.

i do enjoy the activity, but like anything else a little success makes it more fun...

Get on You Tube. There are a lot of instructional videos that will give you some basic information and good tips. It may be enough to point you in the right direction.

Don't you think you are rushing it a bit? Two rounds will not tell you much. It takes most people a lot more time to get better. Some people never get better. Hang in there, practice, ask for advice on everything give it time, a lot of time.

Keep going to the club. Go to other clubs also on their open nights. Watch the good shooters and talk to them. My scores went up a lot after a few guys let me in on their rounds and gave me advise.
