    I have a really bad problem of seeing the barrel when I fire at a bird. For the most part every bird I miss I am looking at the bar ell, not the bird. I understand about concentrate on the bird. I just cannot help picking up the barrel. any good suggestions?

    Try moving your eyes to the target first then moving the barrel to your eyes. Practice will tell you the correct sight picture. good luck.

    Paint em flat black. Some folks I know set up by the feel of the comb on their cheek and not by looking at the beads. Mike

    Do you or have you ever hunted??? If so I'm betting you never saw beads--bbl or anything but that pheasant--grouse--duck--etc. just think--act--look, like you're hunting that pheasant--duck then you won't see anything except that clay tgt. Start your gun move where you see a bird (not a streak) just like hunting. Think head shots--saves meat and your dentures GRIN. Ross Puls

    I suppose not everyone agrees. After all Harlan Campbell uses a fiber optic bead and I don't think anyone here beats him often!!
