    Shoot your straight away first THEN pull or push to the second.

    3 post for righty, shoot right then left. Easier to pull the gun in than push it out and keep your face on the stock.

    Take your time, you really do have some time if you have a nice hold on the first target.

    Nice break on the first one but you have to shoot the other one too, that's why they call it "doubles"....

    Many years back I asked Frank Little for his secret for shooting doubles.."First you shoot the first target and then you shoot the second one"
    Sorta makes sense to me!

    This is almost the same message Arnold Riegger gave when he was asked how to shoot doubles. I can't put his advice into words here without a ban though. Sorry! :)

    I recently shot doubles with a shooter who is in the top 5 of all time ATA doubles shot. He said the same thing. He said he is a one eye shooter and it has always worked best for him. .

    I'm a lefty and post 3 I shoot the right target first...keeps me from pulling my face away from the stock going after the right bird 2nd. But then again I shoot lefty...so I do things backwards :)

    on post 1 and 2 shoot the right target first then left, post 4 and 5 shoot left target then right. Post 3 is personal preference. Right handed shooters have more trouble with right targets so I do right then left.

    Do to my back issues I can't swing to the right smoothly and consistently so I just switched to shooting the right bird first on all post so far I like it! Zack H

    I think the biggest advantage for the right bird first on 3 for the right hand shooter is we can see the bird better and quicker without having the barrel obstruction like we do going to the right. Obviously the complete opposite for the left hand shooter. However with higher rib (heads-up) shooting that many have gone to now, I think has helped this issue dramatically.
    Shoot well! Mike

    I shoot the left bird first on #3. It is easier for my dominant eye to find and line up for the second shot. But I tend to shoot faster left to right anyway.

    Also limited gun movement. Pull, bang, then twist, bang. Better than pull, twist, bang, twist, bang.

    There should not be a "twist, bang". You set your feet and body up for the second shot, and wind your body back to the first bird hold point. It is also recommended to keep forward weight on the lead foot so it is the pivot point. Too much weight on the back foot will cause you to swing high to the second target.

    I shoot bunker primarily so twisting is inherent.
