A skeet gun should be used. Scratches are signs of use.-from #8
Actually, the worst damage I've seen on a Skeet field has happened at Station 7. More than once I've seen broken-off-the-arm low bird chunks bloody-up shooters and ding guns. Long ago I adopted a Station 7 stance that places me as far from the window as is legal. And, it's not unknown for a newby to catch a clay in the back of the head while advancing from Station 7 to 8 -- that will really ruin your day.
