    Does anyone have a clue as to the # of targets you have to shoot a year to become a consistantly good shooter---I think 8 K is the lower end-----Phil

    There are those that have natural ability and need only to hone their skills.

    Then there are the other 98% that will never rise above A Class.

    Not just trapshooting, but all sports where hand and eye control are paramount.

    Depends on what you mean by a good shooter. If AA27AA is your defintion, then it takes at least that many and probably that again. Take a look at the AA list and then look up their target numbers. One of the most fascinating things about this sport is the number of people who think you don't need to practice.

    Depends on the practice.Horseing around with guys talking to you and not being serius is a waste of shells to me. ATA shoots are my practice.

    First pay for good instruction/coaching, then shoot lots of targets. If the best golfer in world (Tiger Woods)utilizes coaches and practise it stands to reason trapshooters could do the same.

    Alot of variables as such, no prescribed limits.

    Are you going under instruction of a coach?

    Does your gun fit and have a POI that you need?

    Is your form good?

    Do you have good eye/hand coordination?

    Young-middle aged-older?

    The main thing is you will need to shoot for a purpose with focus and good technique.

    But if your shooting 8 to 10 thousand in a year and not noticing improvement then something is wrong! If you shoot 15 to 20 thousand and aren't atleast a B class 23 yarder something is wrong.

    10 to 15 thousand rounds per year should do it. Shoot ATA or league targets or have a structured pratice squad to shoot with.
