  1. My WheelyBird works great. Mine has a remote control with an adjustable delay.

    Fundamentals

    I bought myself a ShotKam for Christmas. It is an awesome learning tool. I was shooting some skeet (which I really suck at) and the guys I was shooting with kept telling me I was missing behind the clay. I was using my ShotKam for the first time and when I got home and looked at the videos of the shots there wasn't one of my misses that was behind the clay. They were all way under. I was running out of swing and the barrel was dipping. I went out a couple day's later with my Wheely Bird and shot crossers from both directions and focused on foot position and moving only my upper body, like a turret. I hit 24 out of 29 (that's all I could shoot as it was 30* and I was standing in a foot and a half of snow). When I checked the ShotKam after that round the misses were from stopping the gun. I also noticed that even on some of my hits that I was slowing my swing. I need to focus on follow through and keeping the gun moving. I guess my point to all of this is that the ShotKam is an awesome tool and I think it will shorten the learning curve. Just my experience. Thanks
  3. I have WheelyBird 2.0. Works every time I push the button.
  4. You say you started out as a one eyed trap shooter do you still shoot one eyed? Thanks a lot and Happy Thanksgiving to you as well.
  5. I am still trying to learn this game. I do ok at trap. I average around 20/25. 23 is my highest. I really suck at skeet but don't get much chance to shoot it. I really want to shoot Sporting Clay's and 5 Stand but the nearest range that offers them is over 100 miles one way for me. Oh well, it's all fun as long as I am putting lead back into the environment.
  6. I found a Verona smith in Lake Havasu. He used to work at the factory. He services them and has parts. I did go ahead and get it but for way less than he was asking. It seems to be a pretty good shotgun. Has an adj. comb and Gracoil recoil reduction system that is fully adjustable.
  7. I have a Beretta A400 SA and a Beretta 686 O/U and like them both. I am setting up my A400 as a dedicated trap gun. I have a shell catcher and by shimming the stock I can raise the POI. I will use my 686 for all other games. You can't go wrong with a Beretta SA. Like has already been said it is addicting. I hardly shoot USPSA any more. I am hooked.
  8. I am looking at at used one and can't find much info as far as value. He is asking 1,750.00 but already said he would come off of that. Anyone know anything about this gun Model # is LX680GTSB-12. Thanks a lot
  9. I was torn between the A400 and the 686 Silver Pigeon. I got the A400 and really like it but could not get SP out of my mind so I ended up with both. If I had to choose I would keep the SP. I really like it. The A400 fit me well right out of the box. The SP LOP was a little long but fixed with a shorter recoil pad. Now all I need is Practice, Practice, Practice.
  10. I definitely am going to train to shoot with both eyes open and no tape. I am just excited to find at least part of my issue with right to left targets. I am doing the 3 bullet drill a couple times a day. I am pretty sure I will figure it out. Like I said before I am having fun with it. Thanks for all the help.
  11. I went out today with the wheely bird to practice targets from right to left with eguapo's explanation in mind. I tried shooting both eyes open with no tape on the left lens. Didn't seem to make much difference, got pretty much the same results. I hit most left to right and from behind and missed from right to left. So I thought I would try closing my left eye. I kept both eye's open till I picked up the clay then closed my left to get the lead and break the clay. I broke the first one and about 20 more in a row after that switching between my SA and O/U. Thanks to eguapo's explanation that prompted me to try this, I think I am on the right track. I am hoping that the 3 bullet drill will teach me to shoot with both open but if not I have read where some do close one eye. Thanks eguapo. I am excited.
  12. Thanks a lot for that explanation. I will work that 3 bullet drill over and over and hopefully overcome this dilemma. Thanks again I will keep you posted on my results.
  13. elgaupo, Thanks for the help and the video. It's time for my yearly eye exam and I will talk to the Doctor about that. Thanks for the video I will practice that drill. warpspeed, Like I said the 32" just seemed awkward to me. I never shot one just handled one at the LGS. Thanks
