    I have been shooting a lot of doubles and I find when I hug the stock I just smoke the targets.It is taking some effort. When I set up I am looking at the beads in line.I think the gun is getting away from me in doubles.I was thinking my pad was too thick or maybe if my stock was thinner. I have a jones adjuster on it and i was thinking about moving it fractionally to be closer to my face. Or is this normal for doubles.Seems like is going to get tired.

    Are you turning your head to find the second target? Practice moving only your eyes to find target, then move the gun over. I practice in my garage with a couple pieces of tape on the top edge of the garage door. Point the gun at on spot, then turn your eyes to the other spot about 10 feet apart. Dan

    I find that gripping a tight gun helps me move as a unit and stay focused during Doubles. I think that I get a little lazy when I don't. It also helps eliminate my flinch.

    One of the top NE sporting clays shooters actually locks himself into the gun with a death grip. Bottom line is, if it works for you, then it's the right thing.
