    With all the books on the mental aspects of shooting was wondering about different results of therapy.

    I hate to admit this! But yes I do. You see I have always felt guilty spending so much money and time shooting at little flying disks. But after my therapist explained to me after hypnotherapy that it was only natural to feel this way since I was obviously a victim of alien abduction. There is hope for the rest of you. By the way when is the next shoot?

    Absolutely, my wallet is so much lighter; I can really swing to the target.

    If I didn't shoot I'd probably NEED a therapist.

    Buy and drive a Harley. Never see a Harley parked outside a theripist office. Besides, it's fun to drive to shoots with.

    A little therapy does a body good. Nothing like the smell of Clays, Shooter's Choice and an occasional whiff of bacon in the air for good aroma therapy session.

    I feel better just thinking about it.

    My therapist hasn't helped me shoot worth a damn.


    She does keep my mind off the trapgirls, though. (I knew those Liberal Arts majors were good for something).

    I always seem to shoot better after visiting my therapist, TS.com. After a refreshing session of being called names by the more ignorant posters it just takes my shooting to a higher level. Where else can you expell all your negative feelings on the helpless.

    Best of all the rates are great therefore giving me more money to shoot with and get even more relief.

    I AM a therapist and I can't say I've helped myself much! However, I did used to shoot with a guy who seemed a little squirrelly (technical therapy term) to me. I mean even more than the usual trap buddy. Turns out - and I'm not making this up - the guy had actually failed three (not one, not two, but THREE) Court required Anger Management sessions. I haven't seen him lately but I hope he is into figure eight stack car racing. He was an okay guy but it really rattled me when I found out people weren't kidding about his "problem".

    Live and learn.

    We've decided to shoot more trap and stop shooting at police cars.
    Except for the Suran Wrap incident, we've been cured and feel much better now.
    I have to go, the circus midgets are at the door again.

    My wife burned through around $1,200 in Hypnotherapy. Seems she couldn't set the release, call "pull", or bring the gun to here face anymore-all started with a hangfire. After 10 sessions and a long vacation from even touching her gun she re-entered the sport and broke 100 Singles first time out. Currently averaging over 98%.

    Now she's beating me regularly. What should I do!!

    The therapist hasn't done anything but take my money. Is that why they are called THErapist? On the other hand my hypnotist has done wonders for my shooting skills with the exception of getting sleepy all the time.

    You all must know that it only takes one therapist to change a light bulb, but the light bulb must REALLY WANT to change!!

    Sorry… couldn't stop it.

    The short version........ Every faith has a SUPREME power.. If you believe in HIM/HER things will be better for you.. When you go to a therapist..if they do their job correctly.. you'll believe in yourself.. that's the beginning of great things happening that you can control..If you say you can.. or say you can't..you're right either way.. You pick..

    Put a tack in her recoil pad. Works every time.

    The pain of low scores goes away once it stops hurting.
