    THE UNLOADER

    1. Mount the gun.

    2. When you are SURE it is properly mounted and no final adjustment is needed, then and only then, set the trigger.

    3. Call for the target.

    If one sets the trigger before mounting one's gun, or sets the trigger and subsequently makes an adjustment to the mount - even a small adjustment - it is possible to fire inadvertently.

    Been there. Done that. Know better now.

    All the above provide the necessary safety required for using a release trigger...

    Same as the above for safety reasons and hearing the trigger "set" tells me to focus out front somewhere. Had some pull through experiences with a new release trigger once and that confirmed my thoughts on when to set a release.

    The time and method a person sets the trigger will vary from shooter to shooter. Just as many other shooting facts. Personally I set it when it is firm on my shoulder. But many shooters cannot (for whatever reason) do this. They must set the trigger before mounting. I know several that do this. A couple of shooters I know set it before they even close the gun. I have not see them make errors and release it unintensionally. A person must set a system that works for him/her. As long as the gun is pointed down range
    there is no danger. - Jim

    I am not consciously aware when I set the trigger. It is sometime as I am firmly bringing my gun to my shoulder and up to my face. When I look past my sight at the area where the target will appear, it is set. I am thinking about other things rather than setting the trigger when I am shooting.

    "As long as the gun is pointed down range there is no danger."

    That's the bottom line....

    Sometimes I set mine when the bird is about to reach its peak. Getting better though. Just do it ocasionally now. Have found that it is kinda hard to set it after ya call for the bird and not hear ----------"lost".
