    I just bought my first BT-99 Ken. I'm a pot shooter. I missed my first two shots, centered the third and have shot it well since. Just remember it may not fit you as received.

    Ken,

    Welcome aboard. Sounds like you are starting this shooting thing like we all should have.

    Just remember, keep your head high and watch higher. It gets a little deep around here at times.

    Thanks for the welcome. I have been learning with an 1100, doing okay I am told, 23 out of 25 first time on 16.Ordered the 99 with an adjustable comb,hoping to get it to fit better than the loaner gun. Seems I made a good choice for my first trap gun, even at $1200 new. Any pointers are welcome, lots to learn.

    Now take $1,200 more and buy ammo for that BT, shoot that up and come back and let us know how much fun you had.... enjoy, but fair warning, it is addictive.

    Thanks for the encouragement. Halfway to the $1200.00 for ammo, will take me a while to learn. Having a great time so far. Mostly working on my foot position and keeping my head down and watching the bird. What I said earlier about 23/25 sounded a little like I was bragging, was not at all, just was surprised I did that, I didn't know any better and just kept my head down. We will see how it goes next time. What books should I be reading on instruction? I want to learn, but not get too much information too quickly. Thanks again for the help.

    The CA state champ runs Redlands. Hang around him for some advice and pointers.
