    I have many years of experience with release triggers. Do not make the mistake I did and try a release-pull first. This type of triger is best described as a release-flinch trigger.

    Go with a double release.

    My advice to you would be to find someone that has a double release and ask if you can shoot it. I shot both and am very glad I went with the double release right off the bat. I tried a release/pull and found myself flinching at the second target.

    Shot a release pull for almost five years until the stupid second shot flinch reared its ugly head..now, I'm having a heck of a time trying to figure out when to set the second trigger. About half the time, I end up moving the gun to the bird before I realize I haven't set the trigger. With all the things you have to remember shooting trap, ex. turn right only changing from #5, brass in the back, don't laugh at anothers misses, the quiet eye, the loud mouths..man, this game is getting complicated! I was always told the best trapshooters will have a short neck & nothing between their ears..starting to make sense, I think too much!

    I LOVE release triggers. But for me, I disagree with most of the folks here. I have shot a release pull for many years. I love it. I just don't want to get to the point that I can't pull a trigger. And, a release pull has been very good to me. Jake

    I faced the same question when I had to put a release in my gun.

    Kerry Allor advised me to go with a double release.

    I am not experienced enough to advise. I do heed the advice of those who walk the walk. The really good shooters I know (except for one guy who can shoot anything with a trigger) use the double release.

    gslam- I must strongly disagree with your conclusion that the best place to release tiggers (sic tigers)is India. They could serve us much better along the boarder between Arizona and Mexico.

    If your handle is indicative of what you shoot your question is academic.

    ok here is another side of the deal. if you shoot an autoloader how would you shoot a release pull. CAN'T be done. it is actually a double release. Not really hard. Let go of the trigger on the first target and then set the trigger on the way to the second bird. Just hang on if there is a NO TARGET. motordoc

    If you shoot an automatic w/release you already are shooting a double release.

    Double Release is the way to go, as soon as you release the first shot set the trigger for the next shot in doubles and go to the next target and release your finger again.

    If expensive trap guns had good adjustable triggers you wouldn't be flinching all the time. Never heard the word flinch at the rifle range. Nothing better than a finely tuned pull trigger, like the one that comes in a Remington 3200. HMB

    hmb- Would you begin to see flinching on a rifle range if one would shoot 300 shots? How about 100 shots in 45 minutes or 25 shots in 12 minutes? And, the person would do this 30-60 times a year? I think I would begin to flinch if I did this with my head down firmly on a rifle.

    Release release. Been using it for years. A couple of years ago I was squaded with an anti-release shooter. He was saying he could not see how it helped and he did not want to shoot with anybody who used a release. We were shooting doubles and he did not know I was shooting a double release. As I recall I was the high shooter on the squad.

    Pat,

    How about 10 shots in 60 seconds, or on the pistol range 5 shots in 10 seconds. It's done all the time as part of the National Match Course. Or how about this World Record, 38 cal. revolver, fire six shots, reload and fire six more shots in 2.98 seconds. No flinching allowed. HMB
