    I really enjoy reading in the winter and would love to get better at shooting trap. What would your recommendations be for great instructional books that really made a difference for you? I am an average beginner shooting a 21 to 23 from 20yd line so beginner through advanced material is welcome. Thanks RICH

    P/up Frank Little "The little trap shooting book". Good for beginners and experienced alike.

    Whatever you do, don't waste your money on Russell's "Trap Shooting Secrets"!

    A gentelman named Dick Bennet used to own a club here in Wisconsin. He is quite a legend. Wrote a great book called "Trapshooting is a game of opposites" If you are interested and can't find it, let me know.

    Rich, two oldies I have enjoyed are "Trapshooting With D. Lee Braun And The Remington Pros" by D. Lee Braun and Robert Campbell, and "Score Better At Trap" by Fred Missildine.

    I would recommend "Professional Championship Trapshooting" by Daro Handy, everything you need to know is in his book. Gary

    Frank Little's "Little Book of Traphshooting"


    "Trapshooting With D. Lee Braun And The Remington Pros"


    "Shoot Where You Look" (book plus training CD)


    These are the ones which helped me the most. And I agree with Pocatello's post...Russell's "Trap Shooting Secrets" actually had instruction that was detrimental to my scores. There are some things in it that are ok (these things are in a bunch of other instructional books as well, many of them published previously by other authors), but a new shooter cannot tell the good from the bad when reading it.

    Thanks for the input. I will hop on Amazon and see what turns up. I must say I have gotten a ton of good info off this site and puchased 2 shotguns (a 303 from Wally Reibesel and a skeet 410). If you want older Berettas, Wally does know his stuff. I am always impressed that darn near everyone in the sport is scrupulously honest to a fault. Most folks seem sensible and while there are a few eccentric ones they are...at the very least...entertaining!
