    See the target and let the gun shoot when it is ready.

    "You really ought to think twice about wanting to get into shooting sports. They're usually near the top of the "expensive" list".

    Note: From time to time, I have been known to ignore sage advice in the heat of enthusiasm.

    Two pieces of advice. Keep the gun moving and finish the shot.

    For trapshooting?

    "Try a Uni-Dot".

    I crossfired badly and with one eye never got out of the low 20's at best. Usually in the high teens. Two months fter installing a Uni-Dot I ran my first 25 and 50.

    I asked my dad when I was a youngster how to hit grouse and quail. His sage advice; shoot where they "ain't", I apply that to clay targets too. Hap

    Well,it was more of a statment than advice.When I went to my first shoot with the A.T.A. and sign up.One of the guys said to me "So,your all signed up to shoot registered targets with the A.T.A..You'll never have a fu***ng dime".I did not relize how true of a statment that was at the time.

    When getting training, find someone who can enhance YOUR style not try to change it. Get lots of input, throw out quickly the things that make no sense and embrace the things that work. Know the difference between advice and "head games". Get mental game coaching early so you will know the difference between mechanics and thought processes.

    Everybody has a hot day sooner or later. Even somebody who can't find his ass with both hands, eventually shoots a 100 straight.


    Shoot your targets and wait your turn.
