    Do any of you have a bead to bird relationship when shooting targets?

    I have asked a lot of very good shooters and they all give the same answer, YES,they say the only control you have over the target is your aim,or bird to bead relationship. I believe Frank Little spells it out pretty clear in his little red book.That picture of the target and bead is what should make the gun to go off,not timing.

    But the bead is NEVER clear and it is not required to be. You should however see a crystal clear target !!!! When the bead is in view it is time to pull or release!!!

    Only when I want a broken target. I am not one of the magic men who need to just look at target to break it! I always love that line. Makes me laugh every time I hear it. Jeff
