    Question? If shooting behind left targets form station one and occationally from station two: Would it help to move the comb to the left? Thanks for any help.

    Move the comb in the direction you want the shot to go. You are shooting to far to the right. Move the comb to the left.

    How do you know you are shooting behind the hard lefts? You could be cross firing and in that case you may be shooting in front of the bird. A right handed 2 eyed shooter missing hard lefts on stations 1 and 2 could be cross firing.

    Many shooters have no idea where they are shooting. They think they shoot over when they are shooting under, they think they are behind the bird when they are in front. If you don't believe that get yourself into a Phil Kiner clinic. It is a real eye opener. I've taken 2 clinics with Phil, a great experience.

    No. You want your gun to shoot straight. Move your hold point a little to the left and you can change your foot position to favor birds going to the left. HMB

    Is your eye on the rib centerline already? If not, move the comb so your eye is on the rib centerline. Then, learn how to lead targets properly with your eye in that position. With your eye on the rib centerline, if your gun shoots so crooked that nobody could successfully hit targets with it, then no amount of comb movement is going to fix that problem.

    Despite what some others say, it makes no sense to move your eye off the rib centerline, even a small amount. If you move your eye a small amount, you're moving your Point of Impact a few inches, but you're missing your targets by multiple feet. If you move your eye a large distance to one side, who could shoot with their eye completely off to one side of the rib?

    Move aggresively but controlled [no jerking] to the hard left. Never stop your gun before you fire [no bead checking], and train your brain when to fire so you break them consistently.
    Ensure that your gun is shooting where you look with your cheek locked on the comb. Either pattern it or s/u on #3 with just straightaways.
