    I give up! I had a neat video to accompany this thread and I can't figure out how to post it from photobucket. How do I do this? Thanks.

    Be honest now - we

    Of coarse-hasn't everybody ? At least I don't feel as bad with a gusty wind that pops the target up just as you pull the trigger.

    Head didn't move... my guess is he stopped the gun.

    Been there and done that. The bird is too straight, my bend barrel and twisted mind couldn't deal with it.

    That bird looked to have been thrown a bit low...

    Station 3 straight aways are my worst station.. The simple fix for it is not holding in the center of the house on station 3.. always to the left or right.. Then it is not a straight away target anymore.. That alone reduced my station 3 misses by 90% or more..

    If you don't like that... drop your hold point and promote a quicker.. and more controlled swing..

    I'm with Mr BigBore. I hold my gun slightly right and eyes slightly left of center. Every once & awhile I still lift my head to admire a perfect straight away.

    The forum web site has to connect to Photobucket and open the MP4 before you can see it. It takes a while to load. The slower your internet connection, the longer it takes. Be patient.

    You bet, we all did it at one time or another, I lift my head to watch that
    easy straightaway break. Finally I too move my eyes to the left being a left
    hand shooter and have better result now.

    Many times, usually it's because I shoot to the left of the target. Go figure?
