    Iam searching for a explanation of the term, "Shooting out of time."
    And if you can explain, what would be the correction.

    Thanks for Sharing, Gunnerx

    Only if it came with Mr Winston's or Mr Ireland's recommendations would I think of purchasing it.

    The first thing I thought of when yoru "out of time" would be your own personal rhythm or routine is kilterwackywampass.

    "Out of time," is a tournament archery term, isn't it? In trap, I've never heard it. Devi - can you help here?

    If the term is meant to relate to a squad then the only way that it would be relivant is if the squad had a specific rythum and you did not stay within the pattern. Correction would be to shoot wether your ready or not! Another way is in days gone bye, older shooters tried to make new/younger shooters believe that you should develop a pattern of where the target was broke in regards to distance and that those targets should be shot and broken at that point. Sounded silly to me then and even more so now after a couple years experience!

    For guns, it is stated mainly for auto's and semi auto's for the bolt closing on a empty case without fully ejecting, the empty case and the new shell get crossed in the receiver, the bolt closes prematurely without the live round being pulled from the mag, etc.

    Hey Neil,

    A very good female shooter out of Pennsylvania as she observed me shooting at
    the Southern Grand suggested that I may be shooting out of time on targets to
    the right from post 5. I quized her about the term "out of time" and her reply
    was that Frank Little had mentioned it to her at one time. Something to due with
    ones shot clock for lack of a better term. Her cure was to possibly lenghten
    my call to the target and I was looking for a response and or cure for the
    "out of time" shooting with that particular target. I really thought this inquiry would recieve more attention. Still looking for the answer.

    Thanks for Sharing,

    I think what you are referring to is tempo. It relates to the speed of your movement while achieving maximum fluidity of the motion. It's the difference between a smooth move and a jerky one. In golf, if you swing to fast or to slow it causes misalignment of the club head at impact. Ported to trap, it can result in misalignment of the barrel with your eye and, consequently the target or it can cause you to overswing and stop the barrel or never catch up to the target before your finger thinks it’s time to pull the trigger. This mismatch of gun speed to target speed would be more noticeable on an angle target than a straight target because of the greater barrel movement required.

    Leo Harrison suggests your swing should be “smooth as puddin’ ’’ Phil Kiner suggests that you think of the target pulling your gun to it. I believe both refer to matching your gun speed to the target speed in a smoothly accelerating movement.

    I simply do not know what the term means. Thats OK, we often discuss something from the standpoint of total ignorance.

    Mr. Brooks. That answer was as " Smooth as Silk " and right on!
    You are a wise man.
