    Suggestions and comments as to success on raising the shotgun from a position below the house and calling for the bird as the front sight approaches the front edge of the trap house.

    You'll probably get away with it if the target comes out in line with the barrel, but otherwise you'll end up moving the wrong way at least as often as not. And in order to be able to tell when it's time to call for the bird, you'll have to be watching the bead, and that's the LAST place you should be looking when you call.

    Shooting a moving gun is a very effective techinique but very difficult to master.It will show you instantly when a target is not pulled on time. I think even less guys use it now that we enjoy the voice pulls that tend to give us an "On Time" taget more often then not. The technique was very effective in the days of hand pulling but it requires nerves of steel to raise straight up without looking for the target left or right and not to raise your head on the targets that come out directly under your barrel. A better practice that is more easily mastered is to look for the target and not move until the target has crossed your muzzel and then give a brief chase and shoot. Good luck... You will get a million opinions on this one. kind of like having an idea where the next target will come from. many times you will be correct but that one time you are wrong it usally results in a lost target. There is no easy way or quick fix in this game. Jeff

    Queechi,If your thinking about trying a moving gun for singlse or capps,forget it.But it is a pretty good method for teaching a one eyed shooter to shoot doubles,it takes practice to get the timing down but if you can, it makes the first shot a lot easier.
