What’s dif­fer­ent?

Sporting Gun - - Letters - JAN­UARY 2019 www.shootin­guk.co.uk

I use my fa­ther’s side-by-side and shoot quite well, apart from mo­ments of miss­ing for no ap­par­ent rea­son. What can be caus­ing that?

Tony says: The usual sus­pects are: not mount­ing the gun prop­erly, head not down on the stock or stop­ping the gun when mea­sur­ing lead. Most re­cently, I came across a sus­pect thumb get­ting in the way. The thumb was left across the top of the rib, caus­ing the client to raise his head to look over the thumb and down the rib. This caused misses in front of driven tar­gets and above cross­ing tar­gets. As soon as this was rec­ti­fied, his shoot­ing went back to nor­mal. It can be some­thing quite sim­ple. A good in­struc­tor should pick up on any­thing wrong with your shoot­ing in a train­ing ses­sion.
