I recently received an email from Tom, a trap shooter, with the following question:Tom asks: During handicap I dropped 7 targets out of 50! I had not dropped that many targets during any of my practice rounds. I was devastated! Angry, frustrated and frankly confused. I had been practicing well, lots of targets in the previous ten days, maybe 700 targets in total. Where was my head?
I frequently get questions from readers of my book, blog and monthly articles in Trap & Field and other magazines. Shooters are stymied by some component of their game and turn to me, aka ASK BOB, the “Ann Landers” of the shooting sports.
