    i know they do this a lot in other sports. In foodball they often stop the game before the kicker is going to make an important field goal. how does that apply in our sport?

    How many over-paid, whiny, abusive, drug using shooters have you been in a shoot-off against? Let your gun do the psyching and do not be late to the line. Just remember, YOU made it to the dance (and that is better than a lot of other good shooters did) and that is a great feat in itself. Experience will eventually get you over the top.

    baflstang, that is correct but does not allways apply. this is is a head game sport more so than other sports.

    Be erratic in your timing; one time call and shoot in your normal rhythm and the next time take extra time, look the shell over, mount and remount...

    My friends and I walked to the line with 4 cases of shells, letting the friend that I was shooting off against know that I was there for the duration. IT WORKED..I lost on the first round..Just shoot'em. I still laugh about that one. Don

    Take the shell catcher off your autoloader.

    Do not call for the target by saying pull ... instead say push, shove, dog, cat, rat or just a loud belching sound ... anything out of the ordinary will do most times.

    Tatanka Donk- that's a good one, I'll have to remember it. I kinda like gnberetcj's idea of a thong....if it doesn't shake them up it will have them THROWING up!! (If I wore one that is...)

    Tatanka Donk- I hope to see you guys at Gainesville again in March if your shoot dates coincide with Daytona bike week. Always have a good time down there even if I don't always shoot great. Who knows, maybe in 2008 I'll get my head out of my *beep*. I'm looking forward to the Fla. sun already.

    PS. if we tie again I'll let you win the flip! LOL

    When you pass the other shooter when changing stations just say,

    "Why don't you miss one and let the pressure off me"

    I saw it happen one time when I refereed a shoot off between two well known All American shooters. They had just completed the first 25 of the shoot off and both had reduced their targets to dust. As they were walking back to get another box of shells, one mentioned to the other "you started to get into the last 10 targets". This resulted in a surprised look on the other shooters face and he missed his next target.

    If I were to play shoot off games, I would not be that subtle. I always believed that filling my barrel ports with grease would splatter the glasses of my opponent and give me an advantage. A friend in the spectators area with a silent dog training whistle that would set off targets just at the other shooter mounted his gun could be another useful option.

    Actually my personal approach to shoot offs most frequently is if the others do not wish to flip, I will forfeit. The shells are more useful to me than a trophy.

    why would you care to unnerve someone?

    Do you have to resort to some trick to beat them?

    I guess some of the tricks mentioned above would gain some noteriety even if you lost

    Be a gentleman - go to the line on time and do your normal routine - ignore the head games the other shooters are trying to use - just be a gentleman - get in your bubble and shoot your normal game......Ignoring someone’s attempt to disrupt you will generally cause the other persons head game to back fire – When you do your normal routine - there is no pressure on you to think about your changes and still break a target – Just enjoy the game and let the other person play all the tricks they want to –get in your bubble and ignore it.
