funny, I just did the math on the "average" cost of a trip to the skeet range. Say 5 rounds, plus some 12 ga ammo purchased on sale, and it's real easy to spend $50 a trip. Work in some sporting clays or five stand, and the costs go up. Multiply that by an average of 2 weeks a month (give/take for summer/winter), and it's pretty easy to spend $1,200 a year on ammo and targets.
Sheesh, wish I had done this math when I was looking for an O/U. That would have pushed me to get a XS Skeet
