    Don't think a release has anything to do with leads. I'm over 55 and I do the same with my pull trigger broadway.

    Yea,

    But, do you flinch and do that?

    Take care,

    I'm 59 and if I ever found the need to go to a release, I'd probably quit shooting...

    Turned 55 in July, been at the game 37 years.

    No shooting issues bothering me, no need or wish to go that route.

    If you want/need to, go for it, whatever you think you have to do.

    I'm 56 and went to a release in July of 06. The best move I've ever made.

    Na 221. The release will make you a better shooter. Try it if you don't believe it. But try it for real. Jake

    Yep, the only thing better would be a 2oz set trigger....

    Not everyone with release triggers do so because of flinching. There are some who believe it is a better way to shoot. I tend to agree, haven,t really went all out with one. I put one in the 1100 occasionally to keep ny hand in.

    If 90T releases were cheaper............

    Pull triggers are gadgets. Release triggers are what would have been the norm if the guy that designed the first pull trigger had been a little smarter.

    I have shot double release triggers for many years. I developed a flinch and release triggers helped me a lot.

    I would never advise anyone to switch to a release trigger if they do not have a problem with flinching.

    I stopped flinching after I got a stock that fit me. I flinched for 30 years befor that. Try a stock that fits first.

    After 55 plus years of shooting I still don't have a flinching problem. For those who do and nothing else works get one but not all of us old people need one.

    221, it is entirely possible that you are afflicted with the Al Capp Syndrome...Al Capp being the creator of 'Lil Abner of Dog Patch, USA. Al proclaimed to be an expert on nothing with opinions on everything. LOL!

    Chuck...you may well be correct...I just speal from my own experience in that on the occasion when I have tried shooting a release trigger just to see what it felt like, it was a bit unsettling....

    I went to a release because that is what came with gun. I have been shooting trap only for one year but hhave shot skeet and sporting clays for the last 30 years. I tried the release and shot 24 out of 25 from 16 the first time I tried it. It seems to be natural with me to shoot the release. Those that say they would quit before going to a release maybe should go back to a black powder muzzle loader. That is probably what they first shot.

    I'm 60 and was taught to squeeze the trigger, or the other guy may kill you. If you don't anticipate the bird or load magnum shells you won't flinch. Call for the bird, see the bird, go to the bird and and kill it. Release triggers are an unnatural act. As far as inventing the release trigger instead of a pull trigger, can you imagine the number of friendly fire incidents in wars?

    I have tried to shoot a release trigger on probably about 15 different guns over the years, maybe a box and a half of shells all together, and I HAVE YET TO HIT A TARGET with a release lol. It just does not feel right to me and I just can't let it go smoothly. If I ever get to where recoil bothers me I will give it a real try for long enough to learn to shoot them. But only if that is the only way that I can continue to shoot. Hopefully that day will never come.

    On the other side though, I know two pretty new shooters, just over one year, that have both went to a release and really love it.

    For some reason, I just can not do it.

    John, A WHOLE box and a half of shells? Wow, you really know about release triggers.

    221, No, the guys wasting ammo are the pull trigger guys who's butts I kick while shooting my release and that's usually 95%+ of all of them that show up.
