In order to avoid temptation...

In order to make sure we focus all our efforts...

Should we sell all our shotguns save one ?

So we will be laser-focused on shooting that one shotgun only in order to maximize our potential in trap shooting.

What fraction of our problems come from trying to shoot too many different guns at the trap range ?

Know that three of our best trap shooters at the local range have only one shotgun each and have had that same shotgun for 30+ years. They're 27 yard line shooters.

No. If you lack the discipline to practice with one gun even though you have several in the safe, your focus will still wander if you only have one.

Your average will go up and you will maintain that higher average. The problem is the temptation never goes away. Jon

You are supposed to have at least 12 extra trap guns in case alot of other people show up to shoot, also, you have to have a couple of 5 gallon buckets of reloads and at least 10 cases of clay targets available so everyone can shoot your guns, reloads and targets and make you feel real good when they come to visit.

It's all about being happy with what you have, just enjoying the journey and not the end of the trip, and living your life simple and having faith in your equipment, whether it's a 25,000 gun or an 870 field gun. I believe you "shoot into a guns' tendencies" whether it hits the paper a half or whole pattern high or shoots flat, you still have to account for its impact. This game was developed by bird hunters. It gets too complicated. We make it too complicated. I don't know who is worse. Golfers or trapshooters? We both tinker and get too technical for our own good.

ran200... Good shot on Hammer... Being new to the Forum, he seems to think that this is all about him... When in fact it is all about you and me!

That sounds like a speech, complete with the Rev. Wright pauses.

"maximize our potential

laser-focused on shooting

save one

What fraction of our problems"

I heard enough of that the other night. Sheesh.

There is an ols saying that comes to mind that I heard about a long time ago.........

It goes something like this.........Beware the man with one gun, because he probably knows how to use it.

Hauxfan!

I might be okay with owning just one trap gun (not really) but I would have severe problems if I had to give up the gaggle of field guns in my safe. Lets have no more talk of such insanity!
