Kid and I went out today, just one round, as it was about 90 degrees, and humid. I used the A5 my Dad bought when he made Sargeant, circa 1952. The gun was wearing a 26” Hastings barrel with a modified choke. I have three barrels for that gun.
It seems a bit easier to shoot a gun with a single barrel sticking up. Dad thought he needed a mid rib on everything, this one is no exception, and I dropped a few after I realized it was there and was distracted by it. I shot 18. I beat Chris, but, only by 1. I corrected him a few times, lifting his head at the shot, his Achilles heel of late.
The owner of the club (A very old friend) drove out on his golf cart, and asked that I please come by for lunch one day, soon. He is suffering from MS, and doing poorly of late.

My problem is so many peanuts compared to his.

Best,
Ted

Hey Ted, a small thing that helped with my boy in the past was have him keep tracking the clay on a miss or chip to the ground. Tried to get him thinking the shot wasn't over at the bang, and I think I was seeing a little bit of flinch creeping in? There are probably real shooting coaches that feel very differently, but it seemed to help in an informal way. Enjoy the lunch.

Craig,
Thanks. I’ll give that a try. He has just started shooting, has less than a dozen rounds under his belt, but, anything that helps, well, helps.

Rick is a good guy. I remember being a kid, shooting with my Dad at the same club, and Rick working for his future father-in-law. He and his bride, and kids, and grandkids have done a great job with the club, in spite of leftist city administration trying for decades to put them out of business. The wringing of hands and clutching of pearls over the stuff that has never happened is nauseating.

Best,
Ted

Heat makes MS worse. Hope you get a cool spell soon.
