    What are some physical attributes helpful in shooting trap? I was told I would never be a good trapshooter because my neck was too long! Biff

    Biff, bet Jimmy Heller is glad no one told him that crap? Good to great trapshooters come in all sizes and configurations.

    How to become a millionair shooting trap? Start with two million? Hap

    Long neck = usually BAD for trapshooting, but usually GOOD for making pretty daughters.

    biff: I've got the same problem. So, I installed a 1.5" high rib. Works great. If you ever see Jimmy Heller shoot, about 1" of the pad is touching his shoulder. I don't see how he shoots as well as he does.

    It was an add on from Keen. I installed it on my Ljutic. However I am going to send it (gun) to Moneymaker and have them make me another (same height) but with and adjustable POI. They will make one for you, I've allready discussed it with them. I just haven't got around to it yet.

    Trap shooters have very small brains and are easily confused. HMB
