Formal trap and skeet shooters often, somewhat derisively, refer to breaking clays informally as "pasture clays." Whatever you want to call it, I find informal clay shooting a heckuvalotta fun. It involves some acreage, a means of throwing clays (machine is best, but hand thrown will work), some shotguns, and friends. My family likes busting clays during the summer months and I'm missing it right now in the dead of winter. We normally stick to our regular hunting shotguns in 12 and 20 gauge. Though on one occasion I brought the big 10-bore for sh ..., er, poops and giggles. I had one bruised shoulder, but it was good fun. Anywho, anyone else do this? What equipment do you use? Where do you shoot?
