Every thing good, money and FFL to be sent this AM.

So you will know why I want this 22, reason as follows.

I shot for over twenty five years with a release trigger. Gun was mounted and then the trigger was set, call for target, and fire. Repeat as required.
Now approx. six years ago I retired from trap shooting and started hunting with a pull trigger, I hunted a lot, so as to get better I began shooting skeet with a pull trigger, and I shot birds very well.

Last year I decided to come out of retirement from trap shooting. I found myself have cold sweats and a very nervous finger when trying to set the release trigger on my shoulder. Cure was to set the release trigger with the gun broken open and then close the gun, mount, call and shoot. I believe this hurt my doubles shooting a lot. I have sunk to new lows in doubles, I have had a best of a 97 avg. to now a 88 or so. this is not acceptable.

In the past year I have had knee surgery on both knees and have not been able to hunt as I usually do. I have shot a partial round of skeet and hunted only three times, I have only fired around 25 shots total this bird season with a pull trigger, I believe conditions are right to try to change back. I believe you can dry fire all day, but when you put a live round in the gun, every thing changes, cold sweats again, you can't fool your subconscious. So I have found that Darrel @ Spears in Kansas will make me a release trigger for a Remington 552 or 572 22 rimfire. With this gun I can go out in the desert and practice with a live round in the gun, mount the gun, and then set the trigger, and then fire. After a lot of practice I feel I can set the shotguns trigger on my shoulder again. Thats the plan.
