After watching all the doves flying around at work last week, I decided to give it a try. Still have a bunch of #8's loaded from when I used to shoot trap. Went out this morning for about an hour. Took about 30 shots to get 12 and dusted another 5. A bit tougher to hit than clay birds. I really wasn't ready for the speed of the action. Kept losing track of the birds when I bent over to get more shells out of the box. Next time I'll wear my old trap vest so I can put a whole box of shells in my pocket. Those birds just seemed to pop up out of nowhere. Lots of fun!
