This one may be a bit out there but I was googling chewing gum as an aid with reflux that I think is the cause of my voice going croaky on occasion while shooting that means I struggle with the voice release to register on occasion (which is real annoying).

The benefits of chewing gum in relation to sports performance is widely publicized but to be honest never really considered chewing gum while shooting, so who chews gum while shooting clays?

I'm gonna give it a try to see if the voice situation clears, got nothing to lose.

I chew gum.

I don't chew gum often enough to plan to do it at any particular time or while doing anything particular.

I chew gum when I shoot. For some reason, it helps in keeping my nerves calm and focus on the targets.

try to always have gum when shooting or golfing - takes the edge off between shots

Chewing gum gives the sensation of eating. It basically tricks your brain into relaxing and feeling comfort. Same effect eating has on you.

LOL, for whatever reason I used to chew gum a lot, and stopped once I started shooting :)

I don't like to chew when I shoot as I hear the noise of chewing with my plugs in. Don't know if I could overcome it

Yes, but you gotta make sure to move it to the ‘other’ side before calling for the target:-)

I don't chew gum, but I often pop in a King Leo peppermint when shooting. Pretty much addicted to the things. Downside is always making sure the damn thing is on the left side of my mouth when I mount the gun!

I chew nicotine gum. Helps with the snuff cravings.
