    One poster made the comment: I ask Britt why he shot so fast and he reply was less angle. Sure holds to reason doesn't it.

    How does the actual degrees of angle increase the longer you wait to deliver the shot? It seems to me that the actual degrees of angle is determined the second the clay target leaves the trap arm. What am I missing?

    He (Britt) was most likely referring to the angle through which the shooter has to move the gun.

    You can visualize it with a picture.

    To me it looks like the angle gets smaller the farther out it is.

    Rick you are still looking at the angle of the bird, I am with V10, the angle of body movement before the shot is triggered. other than that, only Britt could tell us. Scott

    ... and God has less time to "play" with the target as well.

    Sometimes at 27 yards I never move my barrel to break a target.

    I just know that watching him shoot or shooting with him is damn near a religious experience....you know you are witnessing greatness.
