Stop Trying to Program on a Skeet Field

When programming pictures on a skeet field, especially the across the gun shot, stop trying to program. The targets are too fast! Program on a big looping incoming crosser. Give the brain time to see what you want it to see and see it develop slowly.

Remember, you are programming, not reacting. When you react, you will always get what the brain sees now, not what you want the brain to begin seeing.

All you need to think about what I discovered last week in San Angelo. I had a student that shot a high rib Guerini with the comb straight in line with the stock. When I asked him if it fits him, he said he thought so. He was looking down the gun (go figure) but there was an underlying reason why. He complained that he could hit anything from the right, but nothing from the left.

Well, wait ’til you hear what I discovered.

When he mounted and shot his gun, he was shooting 15″ left at 16 yards. So guess what that did to his reciprocal pictures? He had built-in lead such that he needed to shoot right at everything from the right. And from the left, he needed two to three times the lead necessary to hit the target. Having success on right targets looking down the barrel embedded in his brain “look down the gun” and he had to see so much lead on a left target his brain was rejecting the necessary picture.

We moved his comb over as far as it would go, and bingo. He began to smash everything from either side all afternoon. He shot incredibly the next day and he began to say that the pictures made sense. His preload was across the barrel or left of the barrel and same speed at the end. And what a difference….

Do the three-bullet drill with your bullets only six inches apart and begin to look at the confusion. It will come. Remember, you are telling your brain what you want it to see. Slower targets to train the circuit.

Let me know how it works for you.
