Anthony:

Just read about your commitment to Olympic bunker trap in the Clay Shooting USA issue 12/13-1/14. I want to wish you the best of success in your quest as I too believe that bunker is the hardest of all of the clay target games. Dan Carlisle, who I met twenty-five years ago through my friend Dan Mitchell, is a great instructor and I'm sure he is excited for you to be competing for a chance to win an Olympic Gold in bunker trap. Know that I will be pulling for you 100% and hope that you attain your goal. Best of luck and good shooting.

Rick Holder

There are not many shoots to follow. You can look at http://www.usashooting.org/

I have the shot the Nationals and Fall Selection match and made the final in both events. I have a long way to go to get to where I need to be performance wise.

Anthony,

Great to learn you're taking up Olympic trap. The U.S. could sure use a medal there. Our Double Trap guys are really cleaning up!

Definitely need a "fast" gun. Are you using a DT-11? If so, is it a trap gun (i.e. near parallel comb, fixed chokes) or sporting gun? I've handled the DT-11 Sporting and found it to be a little muzzle heavy. Maybe go with Titanium chokes if you're using a sporter? Like to know your thoughts and impressions on this.

Best of luck on the international circuit!

I am using the sporting model with titanium flush mount chokes. I have had a custom stock built for the gun, that has a little bit of drop.

Anthony is the stock you shoot for sporting the same stock you shoot at sporting?

My bet is yes. (both to the stated question and the implied question) :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Can you recommend a manufacturer of titanium flush mount chokes.
