I was just wondering if and what you change in your setup when shooting other trap games like wobble trap. Alot of guys I shoot with are into changeing something for everything they do. Barrels,chokes, comb heights, rib settings, etc. I dont change a thing on my gun for anything. I shoot it the same for 16yrds, handicap, doubles, wobble. The only things I change are my loads. 1200fps 7/8oz for first shot doubles, 1200fps 1oz for 16yrds and 1290fps 1oz for handicap and wobble and doubles 2nd shot.
So what do you change on your gun for different games and why? I've never quite got why some many people spend so much time setting up their guns and then be in such a big hurry to change it for some reason. If it's set up right in the first place you shouldnt have to right, or am I missing something?
The reason I'm asking it that everything on my 3200 is fixed. Chokes, rib, comb, pad and I was wondering if it was worth it to maybe add some adjustiblity to it. It seems to work good for me right now. I dont get to shoot a ton anymore, not what I think is needed anyway, but I can still keep my singles average over 96.

Thanks
Tim

Ps....whats the difference between ZZ bird and wobble? I've never seen ZZ bird up here.

Here is all I change

Wobble: I hold a relatively high gun in other singles games, so I have to keep my hold lower on wobble so I can see them pesky low birds.

Doubles: I unscrew my full and put in a modified (but am thinking of going to lite modified) in the top and keeping my IM on the bottom. I switch my barrel selector from B to T.

I figure that if your stock fits you, keep it just like it is, otherwise you end up screwing up your sight picture. Next thing you know, you end up losing that correct sight picture you get ingrained into your head. To me its a recipe to start missing more birds.

I have to agree. Leave it as it is if it works for you. I dont even change chokes any more ( for trap I shoot a full over a full) , unless I am going to shoot sporting clays, and when I stopped all that messing around, my scores improved. I do change loads, but only for 27 yard handicap. Other than that, I shoot a 1200 fps 1 oz. #8, and my singles scores are on a par with yours.

I know a lot of shooters that are always adjusting the gun to shoot where they are looking. I prefer to learn where the gun is shooting and point it (aim) accordingly.

All I do is hold a lower gun, doing whatever I can to know the targets path, I also don't use anything but 7 1/2's. Lots of shots on wobble are missed because the shooter is surprised at the trajectory and rushes the shot, keep a cool gun and move when you know the trajectory.

Tim, ZZ's are Helice http://www.ushelice.com/ and though expensive to shoot, is really habit forming and alot of money to be made there. This is an instinct shot, you see a blur-----move and shoot, but is alot of fun, though slowly paced like pigeons.
