    I'm gonna get this choke opened up so it will put more pellets into the outer fringe of the pattern.

    I had a fellow tell me this just this past weekend.

    He lets the bird get out just a little further so his pattern is bigger.

    One of the better ones I have heard is when a guy buys a shotgun and is missing like crazy and some fellow shooters tell him "you should really maybey spend alittle time on the pattern board and check your Point of impact" and the guy says I got this gun from a guy who has a room full of trophys it shoots great!

    "You were high that one . . . you knocked the pieces down!"

    "I was down 3 in 75 . . ." and so . . what? The high 80's you ended up with again isn't "representative of your shooting skill?"

    I love this one,it is one of my favorites.You work hard and save your money for a new or used trapgun that you really have done your research on,have tried demos ect. and decided that is what you want and you are at you local club and uncase the thing and are going to get to finally shoot it and there is always a guy who has invested nothing in research or a decent shotgun but will tell you right away that You Shoulda got a different model/He Coulda got you a better deal/He Woulda chose a different length Bl./and best of all he Used to have the model up from yours! Shoot well guys!

    "The bird failed to travel through my shotstream." I've been called on that a few times.....

    Wood on wood, well that statement might be true? Here's a good one that I've heard a few times over the years. "my wife really doesn't care how much I shoot or how many guns I purchase", right!

    "There's no bird 1-1/8 oz. can break that 1 oz can't break too."

    That's true, but the same irrelevant comment could be made about a .22 short.

    You shouldn't shoot steel target loads through a full choke.

    You would shoot better scores if you upgraded your gun.

    Promo is just as good as Red Dot. Or length of pull does not mean anything for a Trapshooter.
