Sandra Jo Jack - All American: thoughts on TROPHIES and accepting them...

 Read More


Conviction in your shooting fundamentals is the key to success in tournaments! At the risk of rehashing the old tome about the basics I'm going to muse a bit about one of the most overlooked and necessary ingredients critical for winning and/or performing well in the shotgun sports. Whether it's trap, skeet, sporting clays or any of the international clay target games, having complete confidence in your basic fundamentals is so very important and cannot be overlooked or over stressed.  If your conviction about the strength of your shooting fundamentals is not 100% you run the risk of doubt and fear. These are the killers of good scores and winning trophies. Its the reason so many professional athletes work so hard on the basics. Co...  Read More

All-American,Sandra Jo Jack ... A post for the ladies!

Ladies, I would like to share my advice on getting started in the great sport called Trapshooting. We, as women, have all of the talent and passion, yes, I said passion. Passion I feel is a descriptive way for me to say this because without passion we would not have the drive and perserverance that goes with being the best at what we do. I have a lots of passion or I would not be writing this blog to you. My passion for Trapshooting is the reason I am a currentWorld Champion LadyII Amateur Trapshooting Association Shooter. I truly enjoy taking the time to teach others, men or women, what I have learned or taught myself to achieve their own best results. First… listen to advice...but the right advice!My late father coached me at the ...  Read More

A personal note and introduction to my friend and Lady All-American Shooter, Sandra Jo (Sandy) Jack.

About four years ago I had the pleasure of being introduced to Sandra Jo Jack. We met as squad mates at the Missouri Fall Handicap in Linn Creek Missouri. My shooting buddies and I were looking to fill a post on our squad and a mutual friend said Sandy was looking for a spot to shoot and was a good shooter. Little did I know she was really good! We shot together for a couple days until she rejoined her regular squad. (She beat me at the singles both days.) We met again a year or so later at Sparta Illinois, at the World Recreational Shooting Complex, and found we had a lot of shooting friends in common. Sandy was and still is a Kolar Team shooter, so was busy with Kolar at the Grand American and of course shooting winning scores at the t...  Read More

Dumbo's Magic Feather and other fairy tales...

Dumbo's Magic Feather and other fairy tales... As a specialty gun dealer I get to listen to a lot of interesting reasons to purchase a new target shotgun. Some...,few...,are willing to admit they just want a new toy. Others have had the old gun for so long its starting to have some reliability issues so rather than spend a ton of money on a rebuild they buy new. On the rare ocaision I change shotguns, I try and change when I'm shooting really well...the logic is I can determine if the new gun will perform equal to or better than the old one. Unfortunately, many shooters look for a new gun when they are in a significant slump.(That means shooting well below their normal scores, consistently.)  Although it might make you feel better p...  Read More

Break the target with your eyes!

Break the target with your eyes!   I was working with a student the other day and he was having issues with repeating a practice target after breaking it a couple of times. He would learn the lead and do it right 3 or 4 times then miss it once or twice... OK, we have all done it but the question is why? It took me a while observing my student when I finally noticed the difference. The intensity of his eyes changed dramatically once he felt he had the target presentation mastered. In other words he got lazy. It's hard sometimes to concentrate on practice targets...especially after you have broken it 3 or 4 times in a row. Your mind wanders a bit and your intensity level falls off and you end up missing.  Missing in itself is not the ...  Read More


RECOIL...YOUR ENEMY #1 After two weeks of sitting in our new display trailer just off the shooting line at the Southern Grand and the Florida state shoot, I was amazed at how many shooters were getting pounded by their shotguns. Their shoulders and heads were snapping back due to recoil....ouch! Today's shotgun games (trap,skeet and sporting clays) should not inflict pain and suffering!  Individual shots don't matter much, however like a boxer getting hit with little jab punches, the cumulative effect can be devastating to the shooter over a 100 or 200 target event. Sooner or later a gun that hurts you will begin to negatively effect your scores.  OK, how do you solve the problem? There are a couple of interesting solutions that I...  Read More

7 1/2's or 8's??...

7 1/2's or 8's? As we sell ammo in the shop, a lot of my customers, particularly newer shooters, ask me a lot of questions about ammo and shot size. What brands are better than others? What is "dram equivalent"? What speed shell should I use? And of course the ubiquitous question ..... 7 1/2's or 8's? There is a difference in ammo quality...but not so much between brands, more so within each brand name the type or quality of the ammo varies greatly. Premium target loads like Fiocchi White Rhinos, Remington STS, Winchester AA and Federal Premium are all superior performers. We have our personal preferences but on any given day they will all outperform us! They all contain hard shot, good wads, clean burning consistent  powder and ver...  Read More

Shoot like a politician...really!

Shoot like a Politician... I know most of you think "politician" is a dirty word...I happen to agree with you in most instances. However, as shooters we can always learn something new by observing folks who are good at their jobs and relating it's application to our shooting skills. I use pro basketball players as an example of a pre-shot routine... watch a good player before he makes a free throw. You can watch him shoot 20 times and the routine he uses never varies.  We should use the same discipline in our pre-shot routine. Back to our politicians. During the course of my conversations with shooters at our gun club or when visiting other clubs for competitions, I hear shooters talking (complaining) about things that interrupt them...  Read More

Time is of the essence...

Watching shooters practice...or rather observing them... can be a learning experience in itself. I spend a lot of time doing this in the hopes that some form of enlightenment will come and help me with my shooting and give me an inspiration for this blog. By the way, I really appreciate the comments from you, the readers, good or bad, it inspires me to continue and to do my best to improve the content so you, hopefully, benefit from my ruminations. Last week at the local club I was shooting practice with some folks I had never shot with before. Although they were all pretty good shooters, the pace was such that I felt if I dropped a shell I'd lose my turn! Pull-bang, Pull-bang, Pull-bang....  Then me............. Pull bang! I think...  Read More

So it's winter...

OK...So its Winter....Some folks look forward to winter...not me.  I don't really consider clay target shooting a winter sport. (Unless I'm in Florida or Arizona at one of the winter shoots there!) So what does a clay shooter do when the weather is cold and snowy outside? Well, I know some of you go shoot winter leagues etc.., we don't have any of those around here and the few nice days we get I'm out there shooting.All during the shooting season I do routine maintenance on my competition guns. They get cleaned and oiled between each shoot and wiped down before being cased. However, winter provides us with the time to really break down our guns and thoroughly clean and inspect them for any signs of wear and replace things like reco...  Read More

Punxsutawney Phil and getting ready for Spring shooting

Punxsutawney Phil,Unlike the Pennsylvania rodent who prognosticates weather, I'm just getting ready for the 2019 trapshooting season to begin. Ol' Phil has a batting average around .500 when it comes to predicting weather. I would rather be 100% certain that I'm ready for the spring season by doing some preparation now!Planning the shooting year. I'm fortunate as I'm able to head to Florida for the Bill Jacoblen Shoot in Mid January. This really gives me a head start on the shooting season with some interesting Florida (Silver Dollar) targets. I can get a feel for what I need to be working on for the upcoming season. I take some serious notes during this shoot so I can review my performances and remember any issues when I return home...  Read More

If you can't see it you can't hit it!

If you can't see it you can't hit it! All athletes understand the idea of fitness as it is the basic engine for any athletic endeavor. To be "fit" is a very different measurement in many sports and fitness can translate to a need for endurance, stamina, strength, mental focus, etc. When it comes to your eye, having a fit eye is the fundamental key to performance of eye function. A fit eye is the one that is capable of providing critical focus and attaining heightened visual aptitude for sporting performance. The eye  must be able to react quickly to register visual targets. The eye must be able to focus with critical accuracy. The eyes must be able to maintain focus without diminishing performance over time. Your glasses...  Read More
