    Sounds like those "adults" could use some lessons from this kid.

    Like with most other things in life people should learn to mind their own business. "C" great job with the young shooter. Good shooting, Spank.

    If I knew the kid, I would explain that it is in some peoples nature to want to give advice, and some advice could be the wrong advice. I would tell him to be respectful, but listen with a "deaf" ear. The only advice I would give to that kid is to keep at it by learning and having fun.

    Every gun club has them. The ones that know it all! They themselves rarely win or break a score. Their guns don't fit them. Poor to mediocre stance. But they can tell others exactly what they're doing wrong! They descend on new shooters, especially women and kids with their expertise.

    Nope, never seen one of these gents.

    The best advice for the young "Natural" shooter is to be Humble, listen to their advice and smile, while receiving the Trophies.

    Sounds like an extreme case of new gun syndrome. How good was he shooting his old gun? I'm assuming that he didn't shoot 99x100 the first time he picked up a shotgun. If so, he must be a savant, with excellent hand eye coordination and reflexes. Give him your golf clubs! There is more money in golf. Mark

    I'm sort of confused on the blending of politics, coaching and technique here. But, just playing the Devil's advocate, maybe the shooter snap shot on the one that he missed, and the observer's were telling him what he did wrong on that one target.
    I just don't know, but it seems very unlikely that they were trying to sabotage the kid's shooting abilities.
    Sometimes as coaches we can see things that are glaringly wrong and costing the shooter and their team rocks. If that shooter shoots better scores than the coaches do, should we say nothing?

    When I first started shooting trap, I wasn't very good. (Not a lot better now) one of the guys at the club told me right after I shot, "you're shooting way over them". He walked away and another shooter walked up and said " you're shooting what under them". Every one has advice, many are fools.

    5 or 6 years ago when my Granddaughter started shooting trap I told her about 2 or 3 of my shooting friends that she could listen to. I told her everyone will try to help you, so just tell them thanks and pay no attention to them. I don't think anyone would knowingly give bad advice to another shooter, young or old. The reason that kid shoots "too fast" is probably because he has good vision and better reflexes. Larry Evans
