Hello big fella, hope your trip was good back home, well Allen, Cliff, Mike and I are going hard mate, already wishing you were coming back say oh next month LOL...seriously Todd your session was awesome, shot with Glenn and all the guys you know today, I must say so far my game has improved and so has Cliffy's were both hovering around the 95%, Only now are we realising just how much of a mental game this Skeet is,,,, for some reason we started having some issues on H8 got us beat, if it were not for that sucker both Cliff and I would have shot a 100 today, but he droped 2 and I droped 3, now I know your not here and cant see so far even though you said your eyes are awesome, any generic pointers?

Question for Todd. Just got back with skeet shooting after a long lay off and have been using a low gun. Have gotten pretty good at just watching target and not looking down the barrel of the gun. My question is with a raised gun, as we use in skeet, do I just move my eyes with the target, or turn head until it hits the stock, want to keep looking at target and not down the barrel so to speak. Had your tape in vhs in the old days, but no moev vhs machine to watch it on any more.LOL

Thanks Todd
