July 2014

Getting your shotgun's muzzle on target on timeónot too early, and certainly not too lateóthen matching that bird's speed with your hands are two prime tenets of efficient shotgunning, whether the target is feathered or clay. To accomplish that takes more than a sloppy, come-from-behind swipe, the trigger pressed when enough "daylight" ahead of the barrel sort of seems to appear. Granted, this is the bane, mostly, of game bird hunters. But converts to clays shooting often bring this poor technique to the range, where its inconsistency is sure to rear its ugly head.
