    Hello:
    I was on ebay, typed in Trapshooting, and D. Lee Braun's instructional book is for sale on "Buy it now" for $15.00. In my opinion this is the best instructional book on trapshooting that I ever read. I highly recommend this book especially for newer shooters. He has a camera mounted on a gun showing you the exact leads you need to smoke a target. I have given this book to numerous new shooters over the years and they all said after reading his book, that their averages went up. Best money you will ever spend.

    I never read that one, but he certainly was a great shooter and instructor.

    Smoke: You are "dead on" on this subject.

    I was lucky to runacross this 16mm movie when I first started shooting in 1974. I attribute my success in the sport to this video. I have always directed new shooters watch is several times.

    I saw the tape myself. Was wondering if they were using trick photography when they would smoke a target. I have never seen targets hit so hard. After reading that book I went from an average of 81 to 89 on 16 yard targets. Seeing the leads for me, meant a big difference.

    Those targets... hence the term "smoked".

    Remington back in the mid-to-late 70's made targets like that. I remember breaking my first 200 shooting at some like that in NE. Not QUITE as black, but damn close.

    I have been shooting since 1970. I never hit targets like they did in that video.

    I thought that $15.00 was a low price for that book.

    I've had the skeet and trapshooting books for years. The stories and the history of trapshooting are a good read, not to mention some of the best basic instructions for beginners. The video is on DVD through the ATA HOF for a $25.00 donation. If I remember correctly, D.Lee says in the beginning of the video, they are using a special smoking clay target to show up better on film. If the book still has the pull-out diagrams in the back, it's worth every penny of $15.00.

    The book does come with the special pull out feature. I was unaware that the targets used in the video were a special type. I wish I could hit targets the way they did in the video.
