Post subject:  Good books on trap

My trap scores really bounce around a lot, and I'm looking for more consistency. 16 yardline I'll shoot an 18 one outing and a 22 the next. I really enjoy and learn well from reading. I have the book "Score better at trap" by Fred Missildine, but it seems a little dated and although I'm re-reading it, I'm looking for more. A couple days ago I ordered "Stockfitters Bible" by Oswald. Any books that have helped you I'd love to hear about. I shoot a good deal of sporting clays and have a bunch of books on that subject. I am probably the only person I know at our club that scores higher on 5 stand than on trap most days! Any dvds that are good I would consider as well. Not trying to go to the Olympics, just want to polish my trap shooting. Thanks in advance.

Have you ever read the basic Trap brochure from Remington? Lots of good simple basic info on fold points, foot positions, etc.

If you can find it. The link I had for it ... https://www.remington.com/pages/news-an ... loads.aspx .... no longer works.

In the meantime, you could do a lot worse than spending some time with Chris Batha's YouTube videos. I'm mostly a sporting clays guy but if I know I'm going to be doing some trap, or skeet, I review his YouTubes and rarely embarrass myself. A good thing.
:D

Yeah Chris has really good videos. I watched the one for skeet and it was helpful because I've never shot a round of it but do play on the field just for fun and to practice the angles. I'm also a lefty so most of the foot position and holds aren't applicable. I know I know, just reverse it, still would like to see charts for left hand shooters.

Chris is also a lefty so a most of his demos are done that way....he can also demo as a righty pretty well but rarely does it so I'm the one who has to reverse it.
I know, I know, welcome to your world. lol

And one for Skeet too: http://www.damascusiwla.org/Remington_Skeet_Fundamentals_2004.pdf

If you can shoot 22's regularly, then it sounds as if you have the mechanics down pretty well.
You may need to work on the mental aspects of trapshooting.
One book I like for that is Lanny Bassham's WITH WINNING IN MIND.
It's a little dry, but if you can get through it and take it to heart, you may find it beneficial.

I second Chris Batha’s Tiutube videos. Great content. Also if you can swing it. Take a clinic. I took a Nora Ross clinic in 2019. Best 350 I spent and she worked with all of us for hours. We started at 8-8:30 and she continued to answer questions till about 6 that night. She doesn’t try to change your shooting style to anyone else’s but helps you I,prove your shooting style
