I purchased both of James Russell's fine books; Trap Shooting Secrets and Precision Shooting - The Trapshooter's Bible. After reading and rereading them, I know they have helped improve my scores. After reading the books, I found "my zone" and dusted 123 out of 125! The advice and instructions in these shotgun shooting books are truly powerful. My scores have absolutely improved! Of most importance. I found in the books, is finding the zone and when and where to pull the trigger. I found success after reading these books. In fact, they are so good, I read them a few dozen times, and these are not small books, they are huge in content. There is a tremendous amount of information in these books with many dozens of enlightening illustrations. I recommend you read both of Mr. Russell's trap shooting books, so you can reach your true potential quickly to be a top-notch shooter. The author has excellent works here and I'm most certainly looking forward to his next publication. Shooting is much more fun now that I don't miss the targets like I used to. If your scores are not where you want them to be, these are the books to make you a better shooter!
Denis Field (Syndicated shooting sports television show host) Although I've been hunting/shooting for over 30 years, I shot my first trap shoot on 6/6/99. My scores were; 81/singles, 73/handicap, 67/doubles. I purchased both books (Trap Shooting Secrets and Precision Shooting - The Trapshooter's Bible) and applied the shooting tips and techniques. My competition scores steadily increased. On 8/1/99, by applying the shooting advice, I scored 95/singles, 92/handicap, 89 doubles. I've won option money in the Lewis class, 25's & 50's. I've shot 2-25 straights and 1-49 in handicap competition. I've already won back the money I invested in the books. I feel every serious shotgun enthusiast, not just trap shooters, novice to pro, should study these books. The concentration tips work in golf. Even though I hadn't played in over 10 months, I adapted the techniques to my game and won a local 18 hole scramble tournament. I sank 10 out of 12 birdie attempts.

I cannot recommend these books strongly enough, both are written in a plain straightforward way that makes it easy to follow the advice given. If there should be any lack of understanding the abundance of diagrams and sketches illustrate the points perfectly. I recommend these books to anyone who is new to trapshooting and even the experts will find something to surprise. Definitely a 'must have' in any shooters kit bag. ALAN RHONE
