Introduction to the OSP Knowledge Vault with Gil Ash

The OSP Knowledge Vault is the world’s largest online library of performance-improving data on both wing shooting and clay shooting. It allows you to learn how to improve your shooting skills and shows you how to visualize real sight pictures so they can be recalled – whether you’re in the field or on the range.

There are currently over 5,000 video lessons in the Knowledge Vault to help your visualization of what it really looks like when shooting a shotgun at game birds or clays. To achieve your shooting goals, the brain must first have a mental picture of what you are trying to do. The ShotKam 2D and 3D virtual animations of game birds and clays show the sequential parts of every shot, which helps your brain better understand and produce them consistently. 

The video lessons have an amazing effect. Once you understand the shot and its component parts, you can correct your own misses. The real cause will become obvious!
