Actually, Bake, I have tried lessons. The first was a group Skeet lesson from an old boy called Ziggy that was well worth the whopping 20 bucks it cost. The next was $50 an hr with a guy who used to do gun fairs for Remington and the third was with a guy that won a few championships and is published in at least magazine re trap, and he really didn't help much. What helped the most was shooting with a group of decent shooters (A and AA class) and some tips from a few guys via long distance. They could do only so much with seeing me shoot, but did help.
Strange how the value of lessons seems inverse to costs.
