Im having trouble keeping the bottle from spinning when I flip it into a pour. The spout is never in the right place.
Is there some kinda secret to this or do most of you adjust the angle of the bottle acording to where ever the spout ends up?
Im also having a hard time pouring accurately when I flip into a pour.
When I practice, It alwas comes shooting out of the spout. Its very hard to guage because sometimes it shoots out faster than others.
Is there a way to keep it from shooting out or am I gonna have to learn how to guage the shooting liquid?

Keep it from spinning? Well, you are flipping the bottle so it WILL spin--to get the bottle to end up with the spout in the right place depends on practice and getting the feel for spinning it correctly. Also, it sounds like you're spinning with a rather full bottle. You can't spin bottles that are more than half full, you will spill, that's one of the basic flair rules. Try it with max of 2 ounces in it and it shouldn't spill. It'll also be easier control the bottle since it's lighter and always about the same weight as opposed to flipping full bottles and then flipping one that's almost empty.
