    You might be romie. You could also be shooting behind them too, or over, or under.


    Park yourself on station 1 with a 100 rounds and figure it out. Then repeat on station 5.


    Not much lead needed if your gun is moving and you pull the trigger at the right time--ie on the leading edge.


    It's most likely a flaw in your fundamentals.


    Good luck!

    normally if you don't know where you are missing at , you are not staying in the gun.

    Check for the position of your feet to allow for the angles that you may get. It's easy to come out of the gun when you run out of body rotation on the corner posts. Bob

    You know I might be snap shooting it and comming out of my gun. I think I will park and shoot 50 on one and 50 on five . Sounds like sound advice . I know my feet are set they may be set too far for the right if anything which may be the problem also.

    Those shots are tricky because you have to intersect the target rather than follow it.

    A lesson or get a good shooter you trust to look over your shoulder for about 100 targets.

    Hi Monty. If you are snap shooting, there can be a tendency to stop moving the barrel as you shoot. Swing smoothly and smoke 'em. You'll figure it out even faster if you can lock down the machine on the angles that give you the most trouble. Bob

    Sounds like good advise.I will have to lock the machine down and spend some time. I am holding almost for the strait so I am inside the house a good bit but those short quarting still seem to get me. I work on keeping the gun still and try not to move before I see the bird.
    thanks Monty
