The best time to cure gun shyness, is before you see the symptoms.
And even after you see the symptoms, the prescribed medicine still has the exact same ingredients.
Your telling me this thread doesn't help you at all?

Next day same thing then maybe 3rd throw 75 yards. Keep getting the gun closer SLOWLY. After a few days you'll be sitting on a bucket throwing and shooting yourself. If at ANYTIME the pup cowards or stays looking at the gun, stop. Move the gun back farther away the next day and move slower. Its easy and simple, just dont rush it. When you move from the .22 to a 20 guage and such move the gun back farther away and repeat the process. Have fun!
