Rules to play Skeet Shooting
Safety and Skeet range etiquette
When youre not on a station getting ready to shoot, ALWAYS keep the receiver of your gun open so therell be no question in fellow shooters minds whether its loaded or not.Open your O/U or the bolt on your semiauto or pump shotgun. Its just the safe and sensible thing to do. Also, you wont look like an amateur and draw the scorn of other shooters.NEVER load your gun until youre on a station and its your turn to shoot.Call for the target so the puller wont have to strain to hear you. Occasionally, a shooter will have his own pet word to call for a target, but the traditional words are PULL! for the High House and MARK! for the Low House. However you call for the target, do it in a strong, commanding voice.
Otherwise, dont blame the guy with the switch in his palm for giving you a slow pull.And if youre the guy with the switch, focus your attention on the current shooter and not the other shooters chitchat going on around you.
