I think us trapshooters put so many things into our minds, that we are missing birds because of it. Load a shell that you like and don't change it. Buy a gun you like, set it up to shoot where you like, and don't change it. When you have a bad day shooting, forget about it. Don't go change the load, or the gun.
That just messes with your mind even more. These replies should be interesting. Jon

Very good point as I have thought about this before. Like when you see those post about what shot to use for windy conditions. I think we have a tendency to over think while on the line and change our tenique due to a lost target. Keep doing what you are doing and if you continue to miss that target find out why and get down to the mchanics of it.

I guess my question is. How do you know if you have the right set up or the right load? Unless you change things or try something different you will never know. The problem is, it normaly takes 1000 rounds or more before you know and by then your previous set up is forgotten. Been there done that.

Not me. No way.

I never change more than two or three dozen things at one time.

And never never ever over-analyze the results.

No sirree.

Not me. No way.

Yes we do. Of course I over analyze everything. Just the kind of persona I am. Fitting I am a trapshooter.

btw, I just reread my posting several times and made adjustments..

"Do trapshooters overanalyze things?"

Now lets break this down and take a look at it. First the word "Do". How can we tie this in with Trap you say? Then we look at "trapshooters" which should be 2 words and this may be part of your problem. Its seems your mind is having problems knowing........blah blah blah

No i don't think so. Why would you ask such a question?

I don't think I "over analyzed my trap gear, I went and bought the gun I wanted (XT Trap) had the RADII put on it with a softened comb, loaded the ammo I wanted and got down to business. 28 months later I am at 94.67% on singles with 2 98's and one 99 to my credit a couple of 93's and a 95 in handicaps, my doubles needs improvement and I am working on that. Over analyze?????????????? I don't think so. Just watched good shooters do good things and copied them, simple. Woody

See the success of instruction books, instruction DVDs, super adjustable stocks, four way adjustable ribs,interchangible choke tubes, etc. And then see how many of us only shoot one gun! Martinpicker

Do trapshooters overanalyze things? Not until they start thinking these type of thought on the line.

"Open and close your hand in front of your face. Notice how you do that without knowing which muscle in your body moves first, or how many move before your hand does?"

Just what the average trap shooters think about all the time I am sure, YA RIGHT.

I think we all have the same brain size. It is all of the over-analyzing that causes the confusion.
