I don't know about wad poppers or wad knockers. I always preferred . . . . Out of respect for any ladies on the board I am self censoring this.

Many clubs will have a wooden dowel at each field to serve as a wad whacker.

Use a skeet choke or Imp cylinder if possible. Fixed choke, oh well.
Station 5 is a 4 ft lead....lol!

1ounce had a very good point. If you can shoot station 7 and 1 if you can. Also asked the puller to throw you all singles. They won't care and it will give you a chance to get the hang of close fast moving targets.

Have fun, everybody had to shoot their first round.

I carried a 415 Rigby with spent primer filled with shot and a slug pressed into place. Most sporting clay stands had a way of the sticks disappearing.

On another note, what choke is preferred for skeet shooting?

Not only can a skeet choke be used, if you don't want to go buy a new choke, an improved cylinder has always worked for me. But anything smaller I don't think, would be recommended.

Sure, you can use a improved cylinder choke on the Skeet field, or you can use a cylinder choke on the Skeet field, but the preferred choke is Skeet. Why… because they break more targets -- would you bowl with an undersized ball?
