I enjoy those videos - Knapp, Flanigan, Matthews. The effect of the video, though, is to make it seem like the clays are being thrown much further than Big Jim reports. It was good to read that - better perspective now.
with some practice...
Yeah, I suppose. I wonder, after looking at those exhibition videos, how many shells were fired by each of those men on their way to acquiring their skills.
And how many clays were thrown.
If they are throwing the clays up about 30 feet or so, they only have about two/three seconds to shoot. Gotta be fast.
