    I break a lot of targets when I am loading the machine and drop a box.

    That is about the best advice I have.

    I was thinking that impacting the target with the shot string always helps a lot...sorry, couldn't resist LOL

    Well, I got the hat. I'll have to work on the rest.

    Seriously, YOU HAVE TO PRACTICE! It is the only way you can figure out what works for you and ingrain the list setforth above.

    One of the great shooters and coaches of this sport once told me. The most important thing is to see the target. Keep you eye on it. If you do something else you will likely miss it. All the other b.s. comes with a little common sense. - Jim

    JBrooks, no flame intended nor have I been offended by your reload remark but I can honestly say that I've been reloading shells for trap and all other games since the mid-70s and I can not remember having a bloop or failure to fire from my reloads - Oh, wait, there was an FTF about 5 years ago and I took it home and tore it apart only to find the Winchester primer had no seal, anvil, or fire mix. In the meanwhile, I've dabbled with a factory shell here and there and know that I've had several (maybe 5?) FTFs in the same time. Just fiction and fact from my almanac....breakemall....Bob Dodd

    The proper mental attitude before I take the line it the procedure I need to work on the most. Sometimes I have it, sometimes I don't.

    Don't pull the trigger until you are on the target!

    "Shooting glasses with different colored lenses"

    You mean, like, an orange lens in one side of my glasses, and a purple lens in the other side?
    Maybe that way I can see the target in 3-D........
    Seriously............................ :)

    Focusing on a spot down range before calling for the target.

    Not moving the gun until the target is above the barrel.

    Making a smooth move to the target.

    Pay a better shooter enough money to break them for you. The only problem with that though is when you get good it is hard to find a person better than you and when you do they are far more expensive than, well when there good they cost more then when your bad.

    This is one of the unsaid reasons why trap shooting is getting so expensive.

    I still say putting a shell in the gun is most important. HMB

    Did anyone say"Get your gun to shoot where you look!"? Seems like it doesn't matter to look at the target if your gun is shooting somewhere else when you fire it!! Biff
