    Shoot the same speed as normal and just hold a bead or two lower (over/on the traphouse) to start. Adjust till it syncs up and everything feels normal.

    Trying to shoot faster will cause the gun to outrun your eyes and shooting slower will cause your eyes to come back to the bead.

    There is an old VCR tape labeled "Trap Shooting", with Brit Robinson. It explains gun hold points verses eye hold points. Check your local library. It is excellent for training new shooters.
