Sporting Clay Instruction....SLOW DOWN

I worked with a squad of great young men today during the SCTP practice session, and it reminded me of the most important observations I've made over the years of instruction. It is very rare that I have to ask a shooter to move their hands faster. Ninety-nine shooters out of one hundred will be moving their hands WAY too fast. Once I got these guys to slow down and get in harmony with the bird, they were amazed how much slower the target looked, how much time they really had to kill the birds, and most importantly, how much BETTER they could SEE THE TARGETS.

After that, it was a pleasure to watch them shoot!
