    I'm having some problems with straight aways (hard rights on 1-2 and hard lefts on 3-4). It seems like I have a tendency to shoot too far outside of the leading edge of the target, sort of like I'm mentally thinking I need lead on these birds. Anyone able to explain what my movement to these targets should be? I shoot a low gun.

    May I suggest a trip to the patterning board to make sure your gun is shooting where you're looking? I think if you come up just to the right edge of the birds on the hard rights from 1 and 2 or the left edge on the hard lefts from 3 and 4, you should be OK.

    If you can have someone look at you and the target while you shoot, that can help, too. They may be able to point out if you're arm shooting, peeking, etc.

    Good luck!

    RICH,
    Go up to Mt Morris Sportsman's Club tomorrow and spend 30 minutes and a box of shells on the poi plate that I built for the club. You will learn a lot about your problem.

    If that doesn't help you will have to make a trip to SC so I can watch you shoot.

    The patterning board it is then. A trip to SC does sound better though! You know how frustrating it is to shoot a 24 because you missed a straight shot.
