    I picked up book called Precision shooting by James Russel at a used book store for $1.
    I found the book to be very strange! Anyone ever heard of this guy?

    Should have probably saved your dollar there. Never take advise from shooters unless they shoot better than you do. John

    It's worth a buck. There may be a couple of nuggets of information you can use. Every shooter is a Little different. What works for one does not necessarily transfer to another. I've been learning for the entire 37 years of my Trapshooting career. Never dismiss anything out of hand. Try it first, and see if it works for you...

    It's okay to read, just don't consider it all non-fiction. At that price, if you glean one useful tip out of it, the rest is gravy. Good luck.

    Heck, I'm not proud, I owned/sold both books during my lifetime.
