I know no one on this board ever does anything wrong, but I have a confession to make. This is my 1st year shooting trap and after only my 2nd time I shot a 96 in Handicap and 98 in singles. I listened to some others that I needed to take it easy (so to speak) and unfortunatly I listened and started missing targets on purpose. Now it has became a habit. As hard as I try not to, I raise my head and the best score I have got (When actually tring) in the last 2 months is an 86 in Handicap and 91 in singles. Bottomline: Dont miss on purpose or it will ruin you.
