I'm under the impression that release trigger is more associated with trap shooting (ATA style), I don't remember ever shot Sporting Clays with anyone with release trigger, and certainly not in Bunker. but I don't know how true is this.

If this is true, any particular reason? Or shall I say why trapshooters use more release triggers?

Seeing them more and more in sporting clays, too. One of the best sporting
clays shooters in the world, Jon Kruger, went to one about a year ago.

Ditto "Dixie Special" above...releases since 1977. I can still hunt with pull triggers and have managed not to shoot any holes in anything (except the air..) using releases for all disciplines. Don't hunt that much now. As with all things there are some people that shouldn't be allowed near a release gun, as is the case with reloading as well. I'm amazed there aren't more blow-ups from incompetent reloaders.

Enough said....

Release trigger use is strictly prohibited in almost all shooting disciplines...... "EXCEPT FOR AMERICAN CLAY TARGET SPORTS"..... Release triggers used to be allowed years ago, for intl .....really not allowed, they were just not banned. Now they are. The AMU used to use them because they were proven to be a way of improving your scores, in an unnatural way....a crutch.....hence they were banned by the intl community.

They are absolutely worthless to anything but trap, maybe skeet. Even champion bow shooters use a pull device. The old adage that it is easier to release than it is to pull is nonsense....your brain controls your muscles and it does not know the difference....if it has been trained properly.

Save your money and spend it on practice. Being able to shoot without a crutch is where the braggin rights are.....not in your over priced gadget.

There is no substitute for practice.

Shotguns for the most part have terrible pull triggers. Creep, over travel, weight of pull that varies, and no way to easily adjust them. This has caused a lot of flinching on the trap field. One solution to the problem that has developed over the years is the release trigger. HMB

<EM>"221, get your head out of your butt, nearly all bow target shooters use some type of release."</EM>......yea, but its pull activated. It's pulled to release the string. Y'all better look a little closer.

221, After careful analysis it appears that you are clueless when it comes to the relationship between triggers and brain function. HMB

Release triggers are Not allowed in world events established by the world governing body; such as Olympic games. They are allowed in National and local events. Info from a former USA bunker shooter...."run'em"

Okay boys read the article and then sober up. Bow releases are made to function many different ways, the most common requites it to be pulled, Seems some of you are clueless about any subject you attempt to bash others on.

kolarpole, that's only a recent development and only in America......it's more The Americans trying to mold Bunker their way. Sooner or later they will succeed and you will have American Bunker, and Intl Bunker......just like American trap.....they will alienate any foreign desire to compete here and end up just like ATA trap.

Thank Goodness for Sparrow Young, who has been credited with the invention of the release trigger. Without his contraption, many would no longer be shooting, including me.
