"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."
"You may or may not remember me. I've taken your clinic twice at Milford Hills, here in Wisconsin. In any event, I wanted you to know I just finished reading "You Gotta Be Out of Your Mind" and it is terrific. At age 62, I've been stuck for years as just a so-so clays shooter. Finally, this fall, I had a true "in the zone" experience and it changed my whole outlook on this silly game I dearly love." Tim Doyle
