    Confidence. You have to believe that you can and will succeed, which shouldn't be a problem for most people because that is what it took to get to the 27 in the first place. :)

    A new 27 yard shooter could do what I typically have been doing. Shoot pretty good first two fields (47 or more). Then have a problem on two posts on the third field and shoot a 20. Then start trying all sorts of new things on the last field to make up for the birds missed on the third field and end up with something like an 88.

    I am consistently inconsistent.

    Ask for a reduction to the 21yd. line. That's where most of us belong!!

    In his clinics, Phil Kiner says that the distance between the 26 and 27 yardlines is the longest yard in trapshooting. I've found that to be true.

    oleolliedawg - Great idea. In a couple of days I will be shooting with a member of the CHC (Terry R.) and a member of the EC (John H.). I will ask both of them for a reduction to the 21 yard line. My I use you as a reference to support my request?

    Once you have your gun shooting where you are looking, make sure you have the same sight picture every time you mount your gun, and then concentrate, concentration puts you in the groove, and you will break every target, I can honestly say the only targets I miss is loss of concentration, do not let your mind wander, have a specific shoot routine and do it on every shot.

    I view where the targets are going height wise, I don't care about the angles, the angles are easier to hit for me.

    Don't let cross calling bother you, this will happen on occasion, just beware of it.

    Concentrate, I know some who have a continous tape recorder, says the same thing over and over, KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWN CONCENTRATE.

    This was LEE DAVIDSON'S of Winchester quote to me.

    Auctioneer- You may have a good point for me. I practice very little. So far this year I have only shot 3 boxes of practice and that was last Wed. evening. But, I have shot over 12,000 registered birds since January and I will shoot another 1,000 at the Southern Zone this week. If I take the time to practice a lot, I will not have the time to shoot registered birds. I could practice more and become better, but once I got better, I would be shooting fewer registered birds because I am practicing more.

    I guess I am missing something here. I would say continue to do whatever got you there in the first place.

    Clearly see the target, apply a swift dose of controlled aggression and there ya have it?
