    What do you folks consider to be the best instruction book available on trap shooting? Also, if you have read some that don't measure up, feel free to mention those as well. Martinpicker

    I thought "trap shooting is a game of opposites" was pretty good. I read it a year ago when I first started shooting and just re-read it a month ago. Understood it a little better second time around.

    I haven't read them all, but The Little Trapshooting Book by Frank Little is
    pretty straight forward and covers the topic quite well. Highly recommend it.

    The Remington pro D.L. Braun's book was the book that made me improve the most when I first started out in this game. It had a camera mounted on a gun and showed you pictures of what sight picture you needed to break targets from different positions. If you can get the video of this book that is good too.

    A friend of mine Dick Bennett wrote a book called, Trapshooting is a game of opposites. Dick owned the Big Muskego gun club for years, known as Boxhorns gun club. He was also a AA, 27 yard shooter. He gave you his opinions from the stand point of being a gun club owner as well as being a very good shooter. I would recommend these two books.

    I would respectfully disagree that the trapshooting books written by James Russell were very good.
