Low hold so­lu­tion

Sporting Gun - - SHOOTING ANSWERS -

I have read what you have to say about shoot­ing spring­ing teal with your Move, Mount, Shoot tech­nique, but I am hav­ing dif­fi­cul­ties. By hold­ing out on the line of the bird I can see it leave the trap in the way you de­scribe, but then I end up pok­ing at it, and miss. What am I do­ing wrong?

John says: Easy... you’re hold­ing the muz­zles too far out, thereby re­strict­ing your gun move­ment. Sounds to me as if you’re hold­ing so far out there isn’t any move­ment and that you are sim­ply mount­ing the gun, pok­ing at the tar­get, and squeez­ing the trig­ger.

To stop this hap­pen­ing, adopt a slightly lower hold with the gun muz­zles – this way the bar­rels will have to move when you see the tar­get clearly and start mount­ing the gun.
