After taking a few lessons and seeing my game improve to where I average in the 20s, suddenly, I cannot hit the broad side of a barn and have shot some pretty miserable scores. I wonder if it's part of the small sublities of the sport that, if not careful, can make you miss. I guess it's called not concentrating or overconfidence. Well, back to the drawing boards with some more lessons... Still love to shoot!!

Frank, You are thinking too much. Remember what you learned and shoot. What you are going thru is common you will come out of it. Bill

had the same thing happen to me last 2 weeks. couldn't get comfortable, couldn't stand right, couldn't keep up with the target felt like I was shooting for the 1st time with a gun i never picked up before. I think i started a bad habit or 2 a few weeks back, cant figure out what it is, but nothing felt right, the more i thought about it the worse it got. Taking a month off to refocus. I hope it helps. If not i might have to start shooting Skeet

If you are shooting in the colder climates You may be doing yourself more harm than good by shooting in coats, gloves ext as another poster observed.

It isn't that long till spring hopefully.

Reload lot of shells during this down time and shoot free when the weather breaks.

Works for me.
