King Heiple's new book on skeet is a very innovative and helpful way to learn the game of skeet. I have a large collection of skeet books from the 40's onwards and King's book is unique in that it stresses the WHY you do things, in addition to the HOW. An excellent book for new students, old skeet shooters that want to understand WHY (so they can fix it when it is broken) and a must have book for Instructors or wanna be Instructors. For many of us students it is much easier to do something that feels uncomfortable if we know WHY we are doing it ... King Heiple and the book; Mastering Skeet provides this and a whole lot more. Get it, Use It and I will see ya at the Stadium during the World (well maybe :)

I'm just getting into skeet shooting and this was my first book that I have read. Its very well laid out and offers a significant amount of information. I was concerned that it my be a very dry read, but it turned out to be a quick and easy read.

Great for the beginners, I think some long time shooters would value the information also. I left one star off since the graphics could be better, although they do make the point.

I am a long-time and competitive skeet shooter and found the reading of this was an important reminder of some of the basics I had taken for granted and had been violating. There's nothing like the written word to remind one of that which needs to be recalled and to act as a constant reminder and coach. This book does all that and will be carried with me in my shooting travel bags.

If you are a Skeet shooter Buy This Book. I don't suggest the kindle format (I got both so I could read it anywhere anywhen) because you will want to flip between text and pictures. You won't find better information about Skeet anywhere. As a coach myself, I have suggested to every client interested in Skeet that they buy this book. You can't go wrong. The author's understanding of Skeet shines through everywhere. Everything you need to be a better Skeet shooter whether a beginner or advanced shooter, except for practice, is in this book. Do what he says--you will get better.

I just started shooting again after a 15 year layoff. I used to shoot trap, but now I want to try skeet. I gave it a go a couple of times but I was completely confused and surprised by the birds. For each station: Where do hold your gun? Where do you look for the bird? What are the leads? This book answers all of these questions and many more. Lots of information for the novice AND experienced shooter. You can skim it for the stuff you need right now; or read sections in detail for more in-depth information on fundamentals, common faults and their correction, etc. Highly recommended.

Of all the books and videos I've read and viewed about skeet shooting, this book is so far the very best. In fact, it's probably the best sports-instruction book I've ever read. King Heiple includes a treasure of essential details about every aspect of the sport. I believe this book is a must for anyone who wants to improve their skeet shooting.

Great informational reference book and guide to better skeet shooting. I also gave a copy as a gift to fellow skeet shooter who has been shooting for over 30 years and he states that this provides detailed insights on better shooting techniques.

The best basic skeet instruction book I know. Beginners should focus on the basic moves and techniques. Advanced shooters should learn to understand the discussion of angular movement of targets and such. Yes, a slowing target will require a faster angular movement of the gun at times. This knowledge helps the shooter ensure follow through on certain targets and may be the difference winning or losing in competition.

I changed my technique on Station 8 after an instructor's class with the author. He is one of the few to continue development of the game past the 90s.
