I am working on bio targets, not quite there yet. Each pellet has a sensor that detects impact with the target and has a secondary accelerator that will give it more energy at the final phase of flight. My loads are outlawed by the NSCA ... for now. I have a team of lawyers working on new rule changes that will allow my new shot to be put into manufacturers shells by the 2019 US Open. But they only work with 15/16 oz at 1271fps.


With all that math it's no wonder you never change chokes.

Working on a revolutionary choke too. Think diamond coated plastic with built-in range finder to adjust the choke constriction. Like the old dial-a-choke but the laser reads the distance and adjusts the constriction on-the-fly. I've probably said too much already.

Forget about shells, pros: boxers or briefs?

Where do you put the laser? If you put it on the left or the right side of the gun, wouldn't that cause it to dominate one side of the gun or the other and putting it underneath would make the gun shoot high, no? Or is that all covered in the patent application?

If I were only calculating distance, one laser would be enough. If that were the case, I'd just put it in the forearm next to your hands so it is parallel to your sight plane. However, since you need three lasers to accurately calculate distance and trajectory, it works out quite nicely (I put the lasers in the choke itself, that's why it's got to be plastic). No matter where you screw the choke in, all three lasers triangulate the target and calculate it's speed and distance.

But I've probably said too much already.

It doesn't work in semi-autos.

Has anyone listened to the podcast “behind the break”? Several Pros have been on it recently touting their “sponsored” shells. Doesn’t seem to be much of a difference to the Pros. Who’ll sponsor me is what they are most concerned with.

Personally, I like Remington Nitro, STS, Clever T3, or Fiocchi Crusher, or little Rhinos

Thanks for the answers, some great some pretty goofy but I expected this as I am on many forums and get tired of people asking how to clean their guns or mount a scope.


From what I surmise , a premium, fast, 1oz load of #7.5 seems to be the leader. I just finished my first night of leauge shooting. Clever Mirage 1oz 8's and a few B&G

when I put in some AA Super Sport, the recoil became VERY noticable.. I think i'll find the 1oz AA

My score on the first round was a 31/50, second round 41/50

I’ve developed a new line of shells hitting the market soon that will Be game changers.

Called Marley Hemp-Tungsten. Tungsten iron shot buffered with 100% organic hemp pellets grown on the high mountain, east facing slopes in Jamaica.

And if you think paper hulls smell sweet, these will blow you away. Almost a drug like sensation.

Seriously good stuff man.

Do they come with the snack size Doritos after every stand?
