Kentucky, Colorado, Bolivia and Argentina!
We went to a new club to us Jefferson County in Louisville, Ky. The flight over was interesting. As much as we travel we haven’t had the pilot come on the speaker and said due to the bad headwinds we needed to stop for fuel, so we stopped at a small airport and got fuel and got back on our way. It put us 2 ½ hours late but we got there. Jefferson County Gun Club was the name and we learned a lot about timing our clinics—never the weekend before The Derby. We had a great time and a good response so we will make a date for 2020 just not the week before the Derby.
The big thing that everyone learned is you don’t look down
the barrel of a shotgun. I know that is
a new thing for most students but once they understand what the picture is
supposed to be it just makes sense. Ever
hear that before?
The next week we went to Denver Colorado to Kiowa Creek for
3 days of sunshine instead of the snow that we have had the last 2 years. Much nicer conditions and the crew at Kiowa
as usual were fabulous. Several students
were regulars there so they had some issues with some of the targets so we
solved those problems. Everyone left
with a practice plan of deliberate practice and to shoot only singles, but what
does everyone do? They shoot pairs. Not
a good idea until you have mastered every single target trajectory out there. Have a plan to practice not just shoot. But you say, “sporting is a game of
pairs.” Well yes it is but a pair of
targets is just 2 singles so practice shooting them in the sweet spot, then
late then early so that when you do have to shoot pairs you can hit the first
one in the spot to make the second one easy.
Then you are making your practice beneficial and not just shooting.
Now we are leaving for Bolivia and Argentina with a group in
each country to help rid the farmers of those pesky doves and pigeons.
