    The pattern wasn't really high. It was centered on the window the camera was looking through. It was a very windy day. The thrower was adjusted so the birds would hit the window, but the wind kept most of them below the window as you can see in the film. The end result is that the bird was low with respect to the shot pattern. welderman (Tom S)

    So what you're saying is that the reason I don't go 25/25 each time is because the bird fails to intercept my shot pattern. Just think, all this time I thought it was my fault. In the future I will make certain to only shoot where the traps are properly set to insure a proper interception of bird and shot. Thanks for the perceptive information. BTW the movies were great too.

    BUSTIT...are you new to this game or what? To break the target two things must converge; the target and your shot. Both or either can be adjusted. It has always been so. Sounds like it just occurred to you.

    Thanks, Tom. Was the window polycarb? (LEXAN)

    BustClays, the gun was mounted in a lead-sled and always put the shot in exactly the same place. The thrower was adjusted so that the target would hit the 1/2" thick Lexan window most of the time. Wind was a major variable out of my control. The targets, that day, hit the backstop at about +/- 12 inches from their intended location. Distance was 30 yards from the gun. If anyone wants to see the original .wmv movie (clearer than the Youtube version and opens with windows media player) send me an email. welderman (Tom S.)

    Tom, share with us your theory about the length of the shot string, and how you came to that conclusion- Frank C.
