    What can I say, yesterday way a REALLY good day of shooting. Hit my first 25 right off the bat on the first round with a second 25 on the third round and a 24 in the middle then a couple of 23's and another 24. Overall, I shot 96% over on 150 targets, which is 10% higher than my average over the past 3 months. What changed? I held the gun up high on my shoulder. Had a couple of people tell me that I was holding it too low over the last couple of weeks so after a day of getting used to it on Sat, I went out on Sunday again and shot great. I got the feeling right for the new mount and stance and was just blasting them out of the sky. The ones I missed, two were actual misses and the rest I simply lifted my head off the stock and knew they were going to miss as I pulled the trigger.

    Anyway just wanted to share!

    Awesome - congratulations.

    I have the same problem with lifting my head. It seems to happen on straight away shots that I think are 'easy.' I lift my head and shoot over the bird. I've been trying to focus on that in practice.

    96% is really great.

    I am just excited because this means that I can actually get into the 90's, I was stuck at 86%.

    Mounting the gun during winter - I shot last week in an ATA shoot and did not have a good 1st round (shot 19). Someone behind told me that I was not mounting the gun high enough. It was cold and I was wearing a jacket for the first time. Seems that the jacket was 'catching' the butt and so I did not get the gun to my normal position. I was more conscious of this and did better the next 3 rounds (22,23,23).

    Just in case you start shooting with a jacket be aware of how you mount the gun.

    Yeah this will be the first winter where I shoot so I was also wonder about how to keep the thickness of the jacket down. I figured that I would not wear the vest, but then use warm base layers and a windproof fleece to keep warm.

    Nice shootin' I just bought a windproof sweater from Beretta. Very thin, lined and terribly warm right now! I think with a technical underlayer (you know, Under Armour or similar) it would work just fine in all conditions. Perhaps add a tuke and cut the trigger finger out of a glove or at least the tip. Run 'em all and have a great time doing it!
