Same with the rifle. I loved it, but after putting holes in paper at 200 yards and hitting a steel plate, I got kinda bored. Trap/skeet/sporting is tough enough that I ALWAYS feel like I've accomplished something when I've been out shooting. Plus I find it more of a social event than going to an indoor range to fire a handgun, or sitting on a bench with the rifle.
Getting a beer can to explode at 300 yards is pretty interesting. Or hitting a watermelon with a 50 cal muzzle loader. We go out to a friends farm sometimes (250 acres) when its not hunting season and shoot out there a lot. We bring out different target types so there isn't much of a bored factor.
