    Where are the trap shooting clubs near Austin, Tx? My wife and I are considering moving there from the communist state of New Mexico to be near our son and his future wife. So far I have not found a trap club to join. There is Capital City with a couple of trap ranges, yet it seems to focus on...

    I'm sure someone has asked something similar on this forum before.. but I seem to find a heck of a lot of tuition videos covering gun hold point in depth but never eye holds in relation to those gun holds. I'll concede a lot of them mention to softly focus out into the distance and never at the...

    I was shooting in bad weather today with heavy incoming and cross winds. The crosswinds tend not to bother me so much, but it's more not knowing how high the incoming wind will send the bird. How do incoming winds affect your setup in terms of gun hold, move to the bird and timing? (Addressing...

    I've been finding myself in a slump with left handers on Station 1 & 2 (right handed shooter). I have no trouble at all on hard right hand targets on Station 5. Does anyone have any general tips for lefts on Station 1 & 2? I tend to favour a high hold point but perhaps I should lower it on 1 &...

    Hoping to get a few people's opinion on how high above the gun hold their visual hold is. As a two eyes shooter I opt for a high hold of 1' - 1 1/2' above the house lid, slightly lower than parallel with the ground. If your eyes ares softly focusing out to the point where the bird transitions...

    After shooting for a few years now I'm looking to move on and invest in a competition level gun that's got a bit more weight to it. Around 8.5lbs, mid balanced, 30" barrels, adjustable comb and a wide trap rib are my criteria. I've been looking at either a Browning Ultra XT (not the high rib...

    Recently picked up a nice 1990s Citori Trap, and have been having a hard time getting used to it. My old gun has an adjustable comb which I raise at the back to make it a Monte Carlo. This gives me a sight picture of a gap between my mid and front bead. My new gun doesnt have an adjustable...

    Shot a couple of rounds of doubles with the ShotKam. In this session I was holding a very low gun. You guys will see the big gun moves I have to make. I think this caused some major issues in mechanics and consistency. I have now started to hold a higher gun and seeing some good progress...

However, I am getting much better in my pre-shot routine, understanding what is the "right" feel before calling pull. Understand...
