    Busch is a good place to shoot. Have only ever shot trap there, not skeet. It doesn’t have voice-activated pulling, but it’s usually pretty crowded, so getting someone to pull has never been a problem.

    My only complaint is that there seem to be a LOT of first time shooters, and IMO they really need a full-time ranger at each range. Both for questions and to keep things moving and enforce safety rules.

    I like the pistol and rifle ranges being on site, so that you can get all your shooting in at one place — very convenient.
