    Iam curious as to what Britt Robinsons style of shooting was. I believe he was
    two eyed and held a low gun, but how low. Iam unable to attend his clinics and
    wishing that some one has additional information on his style and technique. Possibly someone who was able to attend one of his clinics could add a little
    insight into this great shooter, for I know he was quick. And does he have a
    book or video available.

    Thanks for sharing your time,

    Gunnerx

    Gunnerx: Check your local library. Robison produced a VCR tape about trap shooting.

    You owe it to yourself to attend one of his clinics.

    Two eyes, low gun, hyperspace reflexes.

    Question, was or is Britt a right handed or left handed shooter?

    Right handed....and Steve, you got it right!...the poke in the ribs gets your attention!.....Britt is a real gentleman, great teacher and in his prime, none better. Hard rights and lefts from 27 yards didn't stand a chance! I had the pleasure of shooting with him at the '90 Montana State Shoot....one of my best memories from this great sport!

    He's one of the two trapshooters I would pay to watch shoot. The other is Larry Gravestock. It was a pleasure to be at shoot where they were competing.

    Gary...I remember shooting doubles with Britt. He called a dead target on one of mine that got a chip off and the puller had called lost. That gave me a 50 straight on my second trap for a 97.

    Britt is here at the Southwestern Grand. Call him he will answer all your questions. He is that nice and easy to talk to. Britt will come to your club for a clinic if you want.

    Barefoot Larry Gravestock, and watching Britt shoot doubles at the Grand.

    Two of the finest shooters to ever bless the shooting grounds.

    Britt, now in the Hall of Fame, was THE best doubles shooter in the sport.

    I loved the "You're fudgin'" and then you'd prepare for a "tap" of the cord.
