We were talking about tracers.

I think I need more tuition. All these years later, my hit/miss ratio hasn't improved. I now use 32g 6's, but still miss at least 50%.

(I used to be Madman, now I'm not quite sure)

And another four years on and nothing has changed apart from Deerstalker shuffling off his mortal coil.
My shotgunning is still rubbish. I may sell the shotty and just stick with my rifles.

Trouble is, rifle shooting and shotgun shooting do not go together. If you shoot a rifle a lot the temptation is to shoot a shotgun the same way and you can't. If you try to aim with a shotgun you're always going to miss behind, as if you're pointing right at a moving target when you pull the trigger it won't be where you've aimed.

With a shotgun it's always 'don't shoot where it is, shoot where it's going to be'.

Take limited notice of me though, as I've only been clay shooting about a year and I'm still very much a C class shot (averaging in the mid 60's).
