See page 15 in Trapshooting USA's March/April '11 issue.

This is an AD for Ranger. The shooter (8 times US Open Champ) is using his middle finger as the trigger finger.

Anybody else out there do this or any comments as to why?

Is the shooter Jon Kruger? If so, he lost his index finger practicing with pyrotechnics for a trick shooting routine many years ago...short fuse I heard. I know he does have glossy ads for Ranger glasses in the Sporting Clays mags.

Jack in PA........John Kruger, when he was much younger, was playing with some small explosives, and it accidentally detonated in his hand, and in the process he lost a couple fingers, and partial use of another.........So, he uses the finger you see in the picture, and shoots release, and for years, has been one of the top sporting clays shooters in USA.......Rob

I've also heard of one guy who started using his middle finger to cure a flinch instead of going to a release. I don't know if that worked for him or not.
