    Just ordered a new xt combo and would like to get release trigger installed. Question is , what do you other release trigger shooters use for doubles. Release release or release pull. If I start with release pull can I down the road make it release release with out much trouble? Thanks Don Plott Hound

    It has come up a lot. The majority of release shooters use a double release for Doubles. But some do prefer release/pull. And I know several shooters personally who went with release/pull because they thought it made sense. Then switched to a double release within two months. I use a double release.

    I was told by a couple of the top shooters that the key is to set the release for the second shot immediately after you fire the first shot. So that's what I've done ever since and like it. Good luck. cls

    Don.....Don't even mess with release/pull because you will go to release/release sooner than later. Do it now and don't look back......Dan Thome (Trap2)

    I too started with release/pull and went to release/release. Allems has high reviews on their triggers. Jake

    Every one of the Automatic shotgun shooters that I have saw shooting a release on the first shot always shoots the double releases too.

    I also just started shooting release triggers and I went witht the double releases I don't even think about it after the first shot it is just automatic on setting it for the second shot with me and I haven't shot it maybe less than 2,00 shots total.

    Another thing some gun smiths will charge maybe 50.00 more for 1 release and for the double release they might discount it some for instance 1 for 250.00 and 2 for 450.00 but as Bernie said you will be out more for the shipping and insurance unless you have it done at a shoot while you are there.

    Here is who done mine above.

    For a Browning it is good advice to have Spears build it. You can have it made Double Release and then just remove the hook for the top barrel to make it release/pull temporarily.

    Like many other shooters I started shooting doubles with a release/pull (better called a release/flinch). It was a mistake. It is more convenient and less expensive to do it right the first time. I recommend a double release.

    Don......Spears will be as quick as anyone, and they are THE Browning release specialists. Patience is not a trait that any of us trapshooters possess to any great degree, but, the wait will be worth it. Like anything else, the best work is done by those that take the time to do it right. Trust me on this: NOTHING in trapshooting is as frustrating or nerve wracking as having your release trigger start acting up, stick, pull through, or lose its set/release weights when you are running a good score in a shoot. Send it to Spears with a letter explaining what you want and ask them to do it as soon as they can, but don't rush it. Whatever you do, don't get anxious and send it to just anybody that can get it back to you in a week because you will be paying for it sooner than later. Get it done right the first time by the best. You know the old saying "Buy the best and only cry once". Been there, done that..... Dan Thome (Trap2)
