I think I have heard them all at one time or other. Probably used up more than my quota over the years. One of the best I have ever heard was when a guy proclaimed a passing airplane cast a shadow on the target that caused a miss. Shooters get pretty inventive when trying to find an excuse for their ineptitude.

I refer to it as the "book of excuses"--We all have one ready at hand the moment it's needed.

The companion to it is the "book of justifications" for why we need to buy another gun. This one is best left at home when your gun money is tight, and you go to a gun show anyway.

It’s hard to be a Pro without a pocket full of excuses

I sure am glad that signs like that aren't posted in the grouse woods, duck marshes, or quail fields!

When I'm having a less than stellar day, and my buddy is shooting well, when he goes 3 pair in a row, I tell him, loudly, "Wow, no one has ever done 4 pair". Works every time.

My favorite is to crush them with positivity. "The way you're shooting you won't miss another bird all day!" Wheels fall off every time.

My favorite was at a skeet shoot when the shooter missed his bird. The complaint was "Frank Vancini's dog barked" just as the shooter was calling for his bird. Frank's dog was a good hundred yards away in the parking lot!!
