Setterman, I say this with all the sensitivity I can in written word, but you must be a stuborn stuborn human. If I miss twice in a row (only done it bow hunting) everything gets torn down and reput together and shot until my confidence is back.

I didn't put a red dot on but I did add a stock extention to my 870, camoed it, added a sling, an aftermarket choke, moved to hevi-13, and a set of fibers this year. Its a killing son of a gun now.

Course the year before I killed both I shot at too...

I am as stubborn as anything imaginable, and refused to admit that I had a personal issue with my head rising at the momment of truth. For years I have preached to my buddies to focus at the climax of the hunt, so they don't fail. Well, I couldn't overcome and focus hard enough to make up for the change with the new stock.

I don't whether to call it stupidity or stubborness. I should have thrown the new stock away, and gone back to what had been working.

At least you admit it. I am stuborn in a lot of things so I understand. However, I have to have the most confidence possible in my gear when I take to the woods or my mind starts playing games.

It took me over ten misses before I finally put a scope on my turkey gun. My eyesight isn't that great (too stubborn to get glasses or contacts) and not keeping my cheek down was the problem. I put a Leupold 1.5-4x20 on my turkey gun and it fixed the problem completely.

That is what is so weird about this, because I am the same way as you. I guess sinking almost $1,800.00 in the new gun made me stupidly stubborn. Should have sold it, and moved on.

Having money invested in something will do that. My new duck gun had a hiccup shortly after I got it and I almost blew off a free trip to AR to hunt trying to deal with it. Luckily I got it steadied up and went down there and killed 2 limits in as many days and had a ball.
