    It's that time again!

    Jim Scouten and Shooting USA are coming to the United States Army Marksmanship Unit at Fort Benning, Georgia for another round of "Pro Tips" in October.

    What do YOU want to see?

    I don't have a list in front of me but what we have done in the past can be found on their website.

    Thanks Jeff!!

    By the time you guys are selected for the Army's program, you've already proven your abilities with a shotgun. Possibly, gun fit questions and answers with the importance of that to stay into the gun for more than one shot is on the agenda? That alone would be mighty beneficial to most shooters! Thanks my friend!

    Much has been said over the years about "sustained leads". When we watch top shooters it appears that there has been insufficient time to actually do that. What is it you see in a regular trap target situation? Be it doubles, or singles, what is the sight picture that tells you to pull the trigger. And too, as we begin to see the head and gun mounted cameras showing what actually happens, what do your videos show you and will you share those?

    I shoot a release moving thru the target as a rule. Mostly when I do see a sustained lead it looks good, but I am in fact past the target and miss or break the front side. (due respect to Neil).

    I have other questions, but will post those later.

    Thanks a lot. Jack Swanson, WI

    Explain why your face is so far forward and the butt so far down on your shoulder. I can guess, but your explanation has more value.

    Thanks for the feedback, guys.


    Are there anymore out there? Be sure to sign your name if you want to be credited by either one of us or most likely Jim Scouten following the "Pro Tip."

    Would you (once and for eternity) explain why follow thru is NOT Keeping the gun in motion after the shot has exited the bbl.?

    Is that a trick question, Jack?

    Jeff, How long did you shoot your gun before you were really comfortable with it?

    Here's my deep, philosophical trapshooting question:

    If a man shoots a shotgun in a forest, and Phil Kiner is not there to see it, DID HE STILL CROSSFIRE?

    Oh come on, it's just a joke! I know full well that Phil is an absolute trapshooting GOD, but I dare to think he has a sense of humor!

    Forgive me, Phil.

    Respectfully,

    Gary

    Setterman,

    I am on my second MX2005, but when I switched it didn't take long because it is not much different from my first. 2-3000 targets I was feeling pretty good with it.

    I bet that changing companies would take twice that many targets. Just my opinion because I have only shot Perazzi since my Sub Junior days (Thanks Dad!)

    Thanks for the response Jeff. I've found a good doubles set up can take a while.
