    Try to read the articals about Stu Wright's gunsmithing career and Susan Natrass's trapshooting career. I found them really good reading. Not only is Susan a great shot but she's still HOT.

    Just stating the facts. I don't think that anyone would argue with me.

    No wonder you spelled it "artical"; thinking of Susan? It's "article", but then you would not have thought of Susan.

    One year at the Grand I ended up shooting next to Susan Natress in a singles program. Her stepping foreward to shoot and back one step after firing would drive you nuts if you were paying attention to her. That's her style and her scores left little to be desired. Wish mine were that high that day.

    I usually get aggravated over the over-technical articles by one particular writer. This edition, I glossed over the multi-lined and multi-colored graphs, and just went for the gist of the article. It referred to crosswind effect of shot as opposed to the clay. Hard to believe the shot would be affected that much in that amount of time, relative to the clay. Then I went out to the the trap range on Saturday. HOWLING crosswind. I figured what the heck, I got almost no chance at a decent score anyway, and the pattern board (my initial goal) was hopeless. Shooting a couple of rounds of singles, I just fired at the bird on hard rights with that howling left wind, and the bas%&$ds broke! I would have normally used a pretty good lead on those, and just shooting at them like a straightaway from station 3 smoked them!
    I'd like to point out though, that I DIDN'T read the "graphs" etc. as it would have most likely confused the heck out of me. God save us from engineers.
    It IS possible to over-think this stuff.
