My neighbor and I had our two sons out to the range this afternoon. This is his son; he is ten and he nailed the first two clay pigeons he ever tried for. I got a number of good shots this afternoon but this one was the best, just as the bird broke. I was using the f50mm 1.7 but I had it set up to f8, Tv 1/500.

You have captured "the decisive moment" in this shot.

Thank you guys. If you had told me 6 months ago I would have been wasting range time using a camera I would have laughed.

Tom - You are right, takes a hunter/gun nut to spot the caliber by the color of the shell.

Gadgetnut - Nope. I had to check the other pictures I took to be sure but his Dad is a right handed shooter.

One of the other shotguns we were shooting was a Remington side by side that his Dad had just purchased, manufactured 1894 and still dead on. That would make a neat photo subject all by itself. Thanks for the feedback; when I first started into photography I was worried that all other photographers would be "artsy" types who would object to shooting sports/fishing/etc. Numerous posts and comments on this board convinced me I was wrong.

I think we have a wide range of folks on here. It seems to be a good mix. I am glad there are other gun enthusiasts though!
