    #1 is true

    #2 depends on how high you have your POI set. I point my barrels at 4, 6 and 8 o'clock a given distance below the target to break them. I'm look at the target but above the end of the barrel.

    He is not literally saying he is raising his head when he shoots. At least that is the way I read it.

    Simone,

    I agree with both those statements.

    What Rick said. I think all three of those things are linked in one sequence, not necessarily in that order, 95% of the time.

    If you move your comb up, you will shoot higher. If you "Float" the bird higher above the bead you will shoot lower. That is if you keep your cheek on the stock, which is absolutly key! Jon

    You could probably roughly calculate the POI difference. Measure how far 'up' your head goes when raised. Calculate how many barrrel lengths there are between the muzzle and your average target break distance. Multiply that number times the distance you measured and wala: that's how far of a POI impact you made. Probably about a 1/2 pattern-width or so with a full choke???
