First, it's extremely important that the Indian finds an arrow that fits him.

Second, there's no substitute for practice.

Randy Iím going to have to respectfully disagree with that. You see JN Davis shoots as well as he does precisely because heís shooting a Parker - guns that he loves and has great passion for. I donít believe he would be as involved with the game were he shooting a K gun or anything else. He tried Elsieís and Ithacaís and didnít get very far.

Yet he is consistently beating his competition. Whatís more amazing is heís only been shooting trap about 5 years. Had he been around back in the day we would be reading about his exploits in Parkers in Pulp. A. W. Money, Judge Gildersleeve or even I. R. Pancake have nothing on J. N. Davis!
That's Because He is a ''Excellent Shot'', Practice's a lot, AND I Believe He Has His Own Trap Shooting Range in His Back Yard. I think John would out Shoot
Most of Us Guys no matter what Gun He was using. But He uses a Parker , the Gun He Shoots the Best. Keep up the Good Shooting John.

But Randy, this Indian would rather miss with a fine old gunÖand enjoy when someone of Johnís caliber does so well with his

A trap range in my back yard and a pallet of 7/8 ounce 1200 fps 12 gauge shells. I think that may be the solution to my problem. I already have a rack of Parker singles.
