    I know the steroids can be useful in power lifting, running..
    What about shooters? I know some drink alcohol, but it very risky,
    it might ruin the score as well and so on..

    There is a special type of oil the "Big Boys" use in their barrels that make for 100% patterns. It is only provided to the best of the best. Jimmy Borum

    The international shooters get tested. World cups and Championships, as well as USA selection matches have USADA reps on hand and testing is done as soon as possible after the Finals. A USADA person is assigned to the athlete and is with the shooter until they report in with USADA. They also conduct random testing.

    Here's a wallet card.

    Although there are drugs to do so, enhancement of cognitive and increased reflex skills require the stimulation of brain nerve connections. That pretty well leaves most trap shooters out of the loop! Jimmy Borum

    It is when you put shot in their back pockets to balance them beyond the point they are capable of on there own. If caught using something other than 7 1/2 or 8's it is also a offense.

    Beta Blockers. Calming effect. Pro golfers use to eliminate the highs and lows.

    Always wondered why the testing is done after instead of before. Would save a lot of hassle in the long run.

    I read somewhere that some Olympic small bore shooters illegally used beta blockers to slow down their heart rate. The theory was that the slower the heart rate, the more steady the rifle hold.


    I don't think that beta blockers would help a trap shooter.


    I think that an argument could be made for nicotine to sharpen reflexes but then you open up a can of worms on all of the known medical issues with nicotine.
