    The BS thread is fun, so I thought I'd start the inverse and see what we come up with - what truths are unversally true in the game of trap? Well, maybe not universally, but for most shooters.

    I'll start with an easy one that I must do every time or I start missing and that is staying in the gun. Some describe it as keeping your head on the stock, but I think it's more than that. It's overall tightness which is pretty tight for me because I'm a thin guy and I shoot a heavy gun. If I'm in my gun well, I easily turn into the target, or sometimes pivot up for straightaways, and smoke 'em.

    Any choke you use is fine; as long as it's full.

    Concentrate on the target, and follow through the shot. Everything else should take care of itself.

    if you put the lead where the orange, ashtray-looking, the disc like clay target is going to be; it will break

    What is "Fifteen two and a pair is four." and what does it have to do with trap shooting? Just asking as I have no idea what it is?

    Thanks Dave
