原来870还可以这样玩


看上去很牛,其实应该也不难。

Trap Shooting

最近迷上了trap shooting。

玩trap shooting 很容易。天气好的周末,三五好友相约,找一块收费不贵的靶场,只要允许shotgun,和装备了clay thrower(投靶机),而大伙儿约好时间,聚在Academy,十来盒打鸽子的弹药,配上几箱clay target, 就齐活了。当然,装
霰弹枪的套子,射击用的眼罩耳罩,打猎用的小马甲,就丰俭由人了。

Trap shooting的有趣之处是移动靶。小小的土鸽子(clay)放在投靶机上,你这面一喊pull, 那面朋友一拽绳子,小鸽子沿着不同轨迹飞出去。提枪,追踪,瞄准,扣扳。只听一声爆竹声,clay如烟花搬绽开。一气呵成,五发五中,打完后那心里的感觉,
一个字,美。再加一个字,爽。

据说早年人家玩这个的,放的都是活鸽子,可咱现代人,一来不忍心,二来就算你全身绑鸽子,你又能带几只呢?更不要说这鸽子的成本了,想来想去也不会六块钱七十只吧。不过说起这土鸽子,买的话还是要买稍贵一些的,我们先试的Academy
便宜的那份,投靶机一放,枪还未响,就已经碎的四分五裂了。结果放靶的人累的要死,等着放枪的人也忙的不亦乐乎,弹药倒是省下来了。一份价钱一分货,用在clay上有道理。

Trap shooting算是小集体活动,至少需要一个帮手,四五人最理想。练的准了,还可以自创多种玩法,比如一碟多枪,看谁抢在前头;比如两碟两枪,有些山寨版skeet shooting 的味道。如果打的不急不缓,大家轮着来,天公又作美,周末的早上打上两三个小时,也就是一眨眼的时间。


Remington 870

玩霰弹枪的成本不高,单说这枪,也就一两百块钱的价格。最常见的两种,一是Remington 870(相对贵), 二是Mossberg(相对便宜),Academy都有个卖。霰弹枪这东东属于猎枪范畴,所以申请起来也容易。几个没买枪的朋友一大早去Academy现买,大半个钟搞定。


Mossberg 930

说起我买这枪,还有个故事。买枪的起因还是玩trap shooting,当然从看家护院的角度看,霰弹枪也是必备的。话说买之前细读了散彈槍(Shotgun)簡介。文章说的详细,读后感觉了然于胸,兴冲冲地去Academy, 进门还发现Remington给30刀rebate,得,就是它了。难得的柜台PP小姐年轻还很热心,循循善诱,娓娓道来,买枪的过程那叫一个如沐春风。第二天朋友靶场一聚,人人12 gauge的鸽子弹,唯独我的装不进,再仔细一看枪筒,20 gauge.&^%$#@!做为男人,枪的尺码比大家小一号,那叫一个纠结,那叫一个郁闷。那一整天枪打个也不理想,由此看来心里因素是多么重要。

按理说枪械出店概不退换,可我不甘心,明明说好12的尺码,为什么拿到的却是20的呢?第二天去Academy, 店员的态度还不错,经理有些想推卸责任,不过一查paperwork, 真真实实,白纸黑字,写的都是12 gauge,经理推诿说退枪过程复杂,需要时日。不过我换枪的决心很大,真的很大,结果。。。重新走了一遍程序,如愿以偿。唯一画个问号的应该是FBI,为啥子这家伙连续两天买两支枪呢?而我的经验是,一定要检查枪筒上的印字。没办法,谁叫偶是菜鸟呢。

trap shooting 玩好了,下一步应该是skeet shooting了,增加些难度,大家私下算个分什么的。不过当下之急是成立好贤内助后援会,组织领导们在百忙之中KK歌,交流下shopping 心得,然后我们靶场归来一起聚个餐什么的。军委常务已经做出指示,只有稳定了后方,才可以提高靶场将士的士气,此乃安家兴邦之长久之道。

2012来临之际,买只霰弹枪,练练护院的把式,是个理由很不错的户外活动。
