100. Introduction To The OSP Knowledge Vault with Gil Ash
The OSP Knowledge Vault is the largest single source library of performance-improving data on wing shooting and clay shooting in the world. It allows you to learn--on line--how to improve your wing or clay shooting and shows you how to visualize real sight pictures so they can be recalled -- in the field or on the range.
There are currently over 5000 video lessons in the Knowledge Vault -- many with voice-over instructions -- to better help you visualize what it really looks like when shooting a shotgun at game birds or clays. To achieve what you want, the brain must first have a mental picture of what you are trying to do. KV ShotKam 2D and 3D virtual animations of game birds and clays, with voice over instruction, show you the sequential parts of every shot, which helps the brain better understand and produce them consistently. The amazing thing about all the different video lessons is, when you understand the shot and its component parts, you can correct your own misses because the real cause is obvious!
