    A year of so ago Leo watched me shoot two handicap targets and then told me that I was slowing down my gun movement as I approached the bird. He said I should speed up. Not to shoot faster but to keep my barrel movement from slowing down. I remain very impressed that he could pick out a major mistake I was making after watching me shoot two targets.

    I don't believe that Leo ever plays "mind games" with anyone. He's just a super nice guy, a great trap shooter, & a great teacher.

    He told me "Slow Down!". I specifically asked him if he sees his bead. He said yes, but he doesn't focus on it.

    If you are moving to slow the proper thing for Leo to tell you would be "speed up", on the other hand if you are moving to fast the proper response would be "slow down" ... I have done both usually at the wrong time and paid dearly for it ... I don't think Leo Harrison has to get into anyones head because that happens when you walk up to shoot off against him, I did see him lose a shoot off once though ... Must of had a brain fart, moving to fast or to slow just like happens to me ... (lol)... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    From watching some of these good guys (and my own experience), I do think constant gun speed kills a lot of hcp targets.

    Leo was not trying to get into my head. He would not fit.
