Double trou­ble... two heads are bet­ter than one!

Sporting Shooter - - Ask The Experts -

Q I can't hit the sec­ond tar­get on a sim pair of clays. Can you help?

A WILL ED­WARDS replies: I think you’re most likely lift­ing your head slightly off the stock to see if you’ve killed the first tar­get, in­stead of keep­ing it firmly in place for the sec­ond. By do­ing this you're chang­ing the point of im­pact. Try this: call for the first clay and shoot it, but don’t send the next clay from a dif­fer­ent trap for five sec­onds. Once you have con­nected with th­ese tar­gets con­sis­tently I’d like you to re­duce the time be­tween re­leas­ing the sec­ond clay to four sec­onds, shoot an­other three pairs un­til you are do­ing so con­sis­tently, and keep this go­ing un­til the pair are re­leased to­gether. En­sure your cheek is firmly glued to the stock and that your en­tire fo­cus is on that sec­ond clay.
