19 Years at Camanche Hills!
It’s been 19 years that we have been coming to Camanche Hills Sporting Clays in Northern California. My, how time has flown. Next year we will have to have a party when our 20th year rolls around.
We had some new students and some repeats, but it seems like the problems are the same.
In the first hour of each day, we go through the animations and try to get everyone on the same page. It seems so hard for some students to stop looking at the gun in the setup, so they will revisit that during the shot.
You don’t have to look at the barrel. It’s always going to be there and you know where it is. But students keep checking to make sure it is there. If you are constantly checking the barrel, your focus has gone away from the target and onto the barrel. And that’s not good.
After you have made your plan and before you close the gun, take a little pause just to clear your mind, then close the gun in the breakpoint and put your eyes (or should I say your nose) to the focal point and call “pull.”
It sounds so easy and yet it appears to be so hard to do.
We had some great “a-ha’s” on how the OSP system really does work if you will do the at-home drills of the flashlight and three-bullet drills. It sure helps to know what the picture is. And the more vivid your picture, the easier it is for the brain to know what you are asking it to make happen.
It was another great weekend of making students improve in their shooting and their lives.
