    Do they really work and help and if so, what kind do you suggest? Thanks.

    I'm considering buying a small digital camera that I can clip to my hat so I can record my shots during practice. I'm unsure about the value of recording my shots, however--do any of you perceive usefulness in this? Westie, above there's a link to this camera: It's cheap, shoots great video and is easy to use.

    Thanks. That might work too. Just seems like a great idea to see where i'm missing and maybe even why.

    You are going to learn a lot more that is useful having someone video you shooting than videoing the targets.

    I tried this once and it didn't work for me. I used a cheaper pair of sun glass DVR's that plugs into your computer to download the video. What I found was that your eyes move but the camera lens doesn't. When I mounted my gun, my eyes turn slightly to look at the bird / bead. The lens stays straight, therefore I was recording approx. 30 degrees off my barrel. When I would look down to reload, my eyes drop but the lens follows my head movement. All my reloads showed whatever was about 3-4 feet in front of me. Also with the glasses I used, at a distance detail was lost, I had difficulty seeing the breaks of the others on my squad when I viewed the videos. Hope this helps.

    Orange Irish, thanks for the feedback. Wireguy, what you said is what I suspected. I think I will have my coach videotape me again while shooting. I have made several changes, and it will be interesting to see how I approach the target now.
