keep you out of the game simply because they "know the game" and the
"inside tricks" they use are so solid... you can't beat them!

|Here's the ultimate shooting coach right by your side to help you fine tune your
trapshooting straight from the author of "Trap Shooting Secrets" -
James Russell. "Precision Shooting" tells you exactly what to do when
practicing step-by-step, but on a much higher level. Incredible variations of gun and eye
hold points to break more targets are revealed (inverse holds, M-holds, etc.), identify
and resolve once and for all the insidious slow and fast pulls that destroys setup and
timing (you learn how to shoot a slow pull not just turn them down), learn the sine-wave
method of call timing to insure consistent shooting and get crisp pulls. Learn how
to see targets brighter and in slow-motion with eye focal exercises and hold points, learn
the in-depth secrets professional trapshooters use to build repeatable consistent
precision to dispatch each target dead-on into dustballs (no chips or messy breaks here).
Detailed back-sighting techniques to hone precise sight pictures (you'll see the target
like you've never seen it before... you'd swear the target were as big and bright as a
full moon), learn how to adjust timing and zones on various trap conditions, recovering
from mistakes in competition to initiate damage control and prevent erosion of score,
intensify mental concentration and visual focus (without straining), one and two-eye
shooting methods and blending the forms, high and low gun-hold formulas and how to use
them to your advantage. You'll also learn how to identify misaligned station posts
and trap machines and make the necessary corrections (super great advice here that works).
|Twelve chapters with more than 80 illustrations so learning professional trapshooting
techniques is easier than ever before, but there is so much more. And, here's a first,
over 315 answers given to questions all trapshooters ask with in-depth explanations of how
to resolve specific shooting problems; from missing targets, breaking out of a slump,
flinching, to learning the inside secrets to consistently dustball targets, etc. Like Trap
Shooting Secrets, Precision Shooting reaches worldwide acclaim. It's a must read for
any trapshooter, especially the handicap yardage shooters, where the big money is won. No
other trapshooting book explains such in-depth "professional" shooting details.
Softbound 8x11 format, 219 pages, 12 chapters, over 130 illustrations. This is
equivalent to a 600 page 5x8 size book!|
| Trap Shooting Secrets has proven itself to be a must read and
is the #1 best trap shooting book yet published, but there was more, so much more to
trapshooting, "Precision Shooting" had to be written to hammer down the
finer aspects of precision shooting methods professional shooters use. This, like Trap
Shooting Secrets, is a doers book. We are not going to spend hours reading about
trapshooting. I'm going to give instructions and tell you what needs to be done to break
the target, and to do so consistently. |
| In this advanced phase, you will be shooting as fast as the pros do, but to you,
it will feel like slow-motion. That's how the pros shoot. It's a mind-set where concept of
time slows and it is the secret how they break targets so fast and with incredible
precision. It's all in the setup and technique. But if you don't have this inner knowledge
you can never learn precision shooting skills no matter how much you practice. It's a
fact. Shooters who read "Trap Shooting Secrets" are winning the big
State and Grand tournament shoots and now they are buying Precision Shooting because they
know just how effective the books are.|
| This book is larger than Trap Shooting Secrets, and we really get into
all of the real world details you will be facing; identifying and correcting from trap
machine misalignments, traphouse offsets, handling busy backgrounds, developing the deadly
reliable 25" hot-core patterns the American pros and Olympic shooters use, eye
pre-focus and gun holds to adjust zones, trigger control and timing, understanding and
attacking target angles, nailing down the sight picture to a micron, new information and
new techniques to shoot targets with authority, and much, much more. If you shoot DTL
(European Down The Line trap), ABT or Olympic trap you will have no problem adapting these
principles into your game. If you shoot Olympic trap you'll learn much about sight
picture and timing development, inner concentration, visual strengthening and more.
| You're going to love Precision Shooting because this book takes you
deeper into the arena where professionals reside, and then some. In no time you'll be
holding your own and inching up your scores, dropping less targets and shooting with
authority because now you are shooting with a deep inner-conviction fully understanding
the mechanics of the game so the targets break like clockwork. The pros are pro
because of the knowledge they have... it's not the gun, not the free ammo they shoot or
luck... it's that inner knowledge of how the game works on all levels; mind, body, physics
and spirit. Those inner jewels of wisdom professionals have... you can too. Precision
Shooting teaches you how. So if you are a serious shooter this is the book for
| Precision Shooting is not for the novice, but for the
accomplished trapshooter in desperate need to reach professional status. Precision
Shooting will take you to the highest of your abilities and push you past the
competition right to the top ranks.|

DOZENS OF DOUBLE TARGET SHOOTING INSTRUCTIONS AND ILLUSTRATIONS
Over 100 illustrations to help you learn quickly.
"Faith is the most powerful force in the universe. Just believe
"Those who know dont tell; those who tell dont
Trap shooting is a demanding sport requiring precise accuracy. One
target lost and you may likely lose! Few sports have such extreme odds with absolute
punishment for error. You simply dont get a second chance to come back with a
winning play, not today. Tomorrow is another day, thank Heavens, but will it be a repeat
performance? Apparently so. If targets are slipping by and the score keeper is yelling,
"Lost" all too often, its time to tighten up your sight pictures. Easy as
it may sound, this is not a physical accomplishment as many believe but a mental
technique. "Precision Shooting" will take you on an interesting journey into the
mind, where you will discover yourself in ways you never thought possible. And when you
are finished with the dozens of practice tips, you will be shooting with so much precision
youll wonder how you ever got any wins prior to reading this book! You will learn
superlative powerful techniques, many that may appear awkward and mysterious, some
familiar, but all so potent youll be seeing dustballs floating in the
air with dead-on hits greatly reducing the odds of losing a target.
The journey to success can be formidable, the path laden with
challenge and heartache, and finding your way requires precise knowledge. You are now
holding the road map in your hands. Most of the practice tips you will read I developed
over a period of years from trial and error associated with scientifically proven
technique based on research. I found most scientific studies, though valid in essence,
fail to work for the trapshooter without significant measures of blending, alteration and
reconfiguration of technique... its a forgotten sport. What was needed is a book
specifically for trapshooters. I couldnt find any true to form down to earth
practical instructional books on the market, so I wrote "Trap Shooting Secrets"
to fill the need. Then another black hole surfaced... trapshooting didnt end, but
continued on to deeper levels. Shooters - experienced and accomplished trapshooters -
needed a book to advance towards greater precision and enhanced accuracy. This book; Precision
Shooting fills this vacuum.
I wrote the text for my own needs, to improve vision skills,
concentration, and most of all to perform respectfully and reach my own set goals. Many
sports books tell you what not to do and is of little practical help to the shooter. We
all know what not to do... show me how to do it right! This book tells you what to do so
youll easily learn what you're not supposed to be doing. As a writer, it is a
self-inflicted responsibility to share learned knowledge. Based upon truth and reality,
the tips within have worked for me, for many, many, others, and they most certainly will
work for you. This information could prove to be of greater value to you than you may yet
realize. The skills you learn here will not go unrewarded. The final authority is the
reader, the trapshooter who desires results, and may the results speak for themselves. For
the greatest authority is he who wins!
If you shoot DTL (Down The Line) many of these tips can apply to
you with some obvious modifications. Regardless of the game you shoot, whether it be
Olympic/International trap to Sporting Clays... there are techniques you will most
certainly pick up to enhance your game to give you that leading edge.
A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR
"Start slowly, but do start."
It takes years for shooters to build precision, but for you it may only be a few
weeks away. You wont learn gimmicks and mysteries, however, you will discover how to
annihilate targets with superior consistency and accuracy with quick and easy suggestions
and practice tips to resolve complex problems. Consider "Precision Shooting" a
trouble-shooting manual to add to your library of knowledge. There are no shortcuts to
success. It takes an innovative approach to take your game to a higher level. It is not
necessary to agree with my logic, only to try it - and in the course of implementation a
deeper insight can be discovered; an invention to fit your form. The results are
undeniable. I have included a Question and Answer chapter to help dissolve the innumerable
misconceptions floating aimlessly about in search for a eager listener. It wouldnt
be a mistake to read this chapter first, then proceed to Chapter 1. Scan and read the
drawings first, okay? It will help you.
Ultimately, people have to be successful. For if failure occurs too often
interest fades and the trap shooter may abandon the sport. Precision Shooting can give you
the accuracy you need to be successful and preserve trapshooting as a challenging - yet
winnable sport, after all. Get ready... your scores are going up!
