    Does anyone know of a camera to put on your gun or hat to see your shot? I know thatin Harlans video they have an eye camera. Im sure that cost a lot of money. Id like to see exactly what im doing every shot.

    If you want what Harlan has you're gonna have to spend what Harlan spends.

    If there was a cheap version that worked anywhere near as well, he'd probably have one of those instead.

    Besides, after you accumulate a bunch of images of misses or hits, how are you going to remember the other circumstances that surrounded that specific target?

    Spend money on lessons, not gadgets!

    There are lots of small lipstick size cameras available for between $80-$100. Check Cabelas and Bass Pro to start. They make cameras for mounting on guns and bows for hunting and they are fairly reasonable. My son bought one that mounts on his 4-wheeler helmet 2 years ago for $60 on sale. It takes video and still frame shots and puts them on a memory card. It came with all the cables and software to install these vids on the computer. For $60 its amazing the quality it makes.---Matt

    Several companies are making sunglasses with built in video cameras.

    Bushnell also makes a 5x video camera specifically to fit a hunting rifle, but I dunno how you'd use it on a trap gun.

    A friend of mine uses the GoPro 1080P Helmet Camera for Kayaking and surfing etc.. It takes a pretty good image. I often thought about asking him to use it for shooting pov trap video. I would be interested in any results if you decide to try it.

    I know Gameliel has a nice set of glasses with a camera in the center of them for under $200. I thought they looked real nice

    870 or an 1100/1187. Probably not that great, but cheap. Good luck.
