    Please explain covering targets.. when I shoot, I mount the gun, close one eye to make sure I have my head down and lined up with the rib and then I never look at the barrel again, I focus on the target, I 'm guessing covering the target is covering it with the barrel? thanks!

    If you see the target when the gun goes bang you aren't covering the target. If you don't see the target (for whatever reason) when the gun fires you are going to have trouble with the game of trap.

    You cover the target with a flat shooting gun inorder to get the vertical lead needed to break a rising target. HMB
