pheasantfanatic....... my groups tightened up as well

drockw....... I haven't been shooting long but I agree thatsometimes times with the finger release I would slap the trigger . Always knew when I did it too. I hated it but until yesterday didn't have a choice.

GMMAT....... thanx for the pic. How do you like the Just B-cuz? That was one he didn't have.

dave37.....yes

Thanx for the responses

I use a Scott Double Caliper.. But a trigger release is what I learned with. I have tried others and they just are not comfortable but some of the best shooters in the world use them.. IMO just personal preference.

Here is a pic of the release I have



I think everyone should try a really good thumb release or other form besides wriststrap trigger style. It is much easier (for me anyway) to consistantly shoot a handheld than a wrist strap style.

Halfrack- I completely agree that a buckle strap is way better than velcro. Velcro is inconsistant and will make your form differ when not put on in the exact same spot EVERY time.

A handheld isnt more or less accurate by any means, but i think I and many others are more accurate with them.

I just bought a Scott Sabretooth about a week ago. My old trusty Tru Fire finally wore out so I figured it was time to upgrade.

So far I love the Sabretooth. It is a wrist, double caliper, and is very smooth in the limited time I have had it. I will most likely be purchasing another for a backup before next season.

I have always shot a wrist strap for hunting. I have a Carter Chocolate Addiction, but I never felt comfortable enough to take it into the woods. I shot well with it, just not confident with it on a deer I guess.
