To ensure proper aim, a well fitting gun is a must. If you feel off balance while holding your gun, chances are it is too big and that can cause problems. If a gun is too small you won't be able to get your head in the right position to aim. "I can raise kids and still kick your *** in clays"Edited by: goldenhunter02 at: 1/7/03 1:01:26 am

My other part of the tip! : Assumming you are right handed raise your right elbow up (this makes a pocket in your shoulder which makes you put your gun in the same place everytime!) Browning, The Best there is because second best is well...second best.

I think you have your angles mixed up, that would put your elbow at or over your head. :eek I think you meant 45-60 degrees.:smokin "I can raise kids and still kick your *** in clays"

All shooters must keep in mind that every person is different... if 90 degrees or less works well for you and you hit what you are aiming at, that is great. If 100 degrees or better works for you then that is good also. The point is to have the best pocket you can for maximum control over YOUR gun. Try a bunch of different angles in your mirror or at the range and you will be able to get it perfect for you. :) :smokin "I can raise kids and still kick your *** in clays"Edited by: goldenhunter02 at: 12/18/02 12:31:29 am

SCG... If I had my elbow 100 degrees from my side that would mean that my elbow would be level with the top of my ear.Do you really shoot like that? My wrist won't bend far enough for my elbow to go that high. I think it'd be interesting watching you shoot like that.Oooh... I think I'll start a thread on the most interesting or strangest way you've seem someone shoot clays... A woman has the last word in any argument.

There is another tip within a tip.....practice mounting the shotgun in front of a mirror. You can see proper shotgun placement, the sight picture, and you can build muscle memory by mounting the gun.Oh were we fellas s'posed to contribute to that too?? There is a fine line between a hobby and insanity.

goldenhunter02World Class Shotgun Mom and ModeratorPosts: 176(12/23/02 9:00:42 pm)The Weekly Shooting Tip-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Use low recoil target loads when practicing. Shotgun shells containing 7/8 to 1 oz shot will work nicely for this. The lower amount of shot with more powder gives these shells high velocity, low recoil, and excellent pattern integrity. Many competition shooters prefer these light loads even under tough conditions that can be found at tournaments.

Sporting Clays Girl Women's Shotgun ExpertPosts: 453(12/26/02 9:26:52 pm)Re: The Weekly Shooting Tip-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Umm unless you shoot competition then you practice with what you are going to shoot at competition!

Rick618Shotgun ExpertPosts: 494(12/26/02 9:50:23 pm)Re: The Weekly Shooting Tip-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- But you dont always get to practice with what you compete with, say at the National?? They have some nice factory heavy loads all ready to go with the logo and everything. There is a fine line between a hobby and insanity. Sporting Clays Girl Women's Shotgun ExpertPosts: 457(12/26/02 10:39:08 pm)Re: The Weekly Shooting Tip-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Well yea but thats at the grand nationals! I mean come on and they are just AA's. Browning, The Best there is because second best is well...second best. Rick618Shotgun ExpertPosts: 504(12/28/02 8:35:45 am)Re: The Weekly Shooting Tip-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I think you need to check the hulls as they are not "just AA's" as you say....they are a hotter than normal or an above average factory shell.I have shot with Bill Parsons at Dixie and have a bunch of the hulls from the leftover cases that he brought back.
