    I'm having a hard time hitting the second shot on doubles. I'm a new shooter of this game only 300 rounds fired. I use a Remington 1100 classic trap with the singles choke (improved mod). The person running the shoot said I was over shooting the second shot by 1 1/2 feet or so? I thought I was using the same aim as the first shot? Is it were the target may be falling by the time I get to it and I'm shooting over it?

    I have found that using a O/U is better because you don't get that clang the way you do with an auto. Try to barrow one from someone at the range. I use IM and FULL. I would rather use IC and IM.

    It should still be on the way up or at the very least not going down yet. Try shooting the first bird just a tad faster. John

    Sorry but I almost forgot. Stand with your feet planted for the second shot. Kind of unwind from the first. John

    Believing the assement is correct and you really miss high is a big leap of faith. But assuming it is correct, I will give you the secret. You must approach the second target from behind and below. If you do this, you cannot miss high - as a matter of fact, you cannot miss at all.

    If your head isn't where it was for the first shot and you are getting kicked loose, go to lighter loads and then work on staying in the gun. If you are shooting the second bird before it peaks,you'll be coming at it from behind and under. Try different gun holds, holding further back with the lead hand has helped a lot of shooters smooth out shooting doubles.

    Coming out of the gun on the second shot is a common problem. Shoot the first bird rather fast and get it out of the way. Grip the gun firmly and keep your head down. Do not aim the gun. See the second bird well and just let the gun go off.
