"Any movement given the gun prior to Focus on the target is wasted and increases the risk by the cube." ...OSP
Would it be fair to say if you began to make your move to the target prior to seeing it that you would be anticipating or guessing where and how fast to move the gun?
Would it be fair to say that moving your gun before you saw the target would create inconsistency in your move?
Would it be fair to say that moving your gun prior to Focusing on the target would make it harder to shoot 10 of 10?
Would it be fair to say that moving your gun prior to Focusing on the target would increase tension and make you more susceptible to nervousness and flinching?
Would it be fair to say moving your gun prior to Focusing on the target would create an inconsistent insertion point on the bird?
Would it be fair to say that if you waited to Focus on the Front of the target to move your gun, you would know the speed and line of the bird and be able to react in a consistent way regardless of distance, direction or speed of the bird?
Would it be fair to say that if you reacted to every bird in the same way that you would establish a consistent approach to every target and your scores would improve?
"Learning to shoot is about learning mechanical excellence. Learning to perform is about controlling risk and learning how to think."
"I was fortunate enough to meet Gil at an instructor training facility in Wisconsin with John Higgins way back when, the year after Gil’s shoulder surgery. It was apparent to all attendees that Gil was destined to be an outstanding instructor, and he was enjoyed by all of us. I am now 78 year's old, and shoot weekly, often 3 times a week and enjoy all aspects of the shooting of clay bird sports. I shoot trap, skeet, and sporting clays. Often rotate in the manner to allow me to shoot all three in a week, so I really shoot a lot of shells….Gil and Vicki are the greatest, and shooting certainly needs more people like yourselves as we will exist only if the young pursue the shooting game. Thanks for your service to the shooting sports." Bob Cross - Avid Shooter
