It is dangerous to believe you can achieve repeatable wins in trap shooting without having the knowledge.  Just look at your scores and you'll see what we are talking about.  Then look at the accomplished shooter's scores, talk with them, and you'll see it's the knowledge not just natural talent that makes a consistant winner.

The professional shooting techniques are easy to learn.   It's not rocket science, it is tried and proven advice and specific instructions to break targets consistently.  It's dangerous to think you don't need this knowledge, after all, it is your money at these shoots you are going to lose.  The better shooters will 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!

And if you thought Trap Shooting Secrets was good... just wait until you get your hands on Precision Shooting !  Habitually missing targets becomes a faded memory.

DESCRIPTION

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!

AUTHOR COMMENTS

*   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 you. 
  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.

THIS BOOK IS AN INVESTMENT IN YOUR SHOOTING FUTURE

... All it takes is just one win to make it all worthwhile ...

For less than the cost of a half-case of shells you learn techniques to last you a lifetime!

    INTRODUCTION

    "Those who know don’t tell; those who tell don’t know."

      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 don’t 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, it’s 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 you’ll 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 you’ll 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... it’s a forgotten sport. What was needed is a book specifically for trapshooters. I couldn’t 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 didn’t 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 you’ll 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 won’t 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 wouldn’t 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 trapshooter 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!

    IF YOU LOVE TRAP SHOOTING.... YOU'LL LOVE IT EVEN MORE BREAKING HIGHER SCORES!
