I believe there are many more misses by shooting under the target than over the target. The key to preventing this is not to try to shoot higher. Just keep into your gun and see the target without lifting your head and your
brain-gun will do the rest. My problem is that I can see the target better if I lift your head just a little. That is a trick Mother Nature plays on me.
I'd have to look at it again but I believe Phil Kiner's DVD explains it as Pheasantmaster stated. Best money I ever spent. When I start having problems I watch it again. Has always seem to help so far.
Hey Phil, does that mean I have been consistently hitting those hard lefts,(they were never a problem) because I cross fire on them? Two eyed shooting, would suggest so, and hard rights are missed because I am not shooting "Behind it" but left of it...right? This would suggest that the crossfire problem actually helps hit hard lefts..actually your DVD helped me identify my crossfire issues. I had never heard of it before seeing your DVD. And now, I tape the left lens, and on 4 and 5 (where I had the most difficulty) I just close the left eye and shoot one eye only. Works for me!Thanks again. By the way you got a new DVD in the works?
ajax- not sure I understand your 1st question- the percentages are the same for lefties
Cross-firing does not help on any angle because you shoot high on the target
Remember this - it is quite common to have someone cross-fire on only one angle so you could cross-fire on rights and not on lefts meaning you could shoot all your lefts two-eyed and hit them well when at the same time you would miss your rights when you shoot them with both eyes.
My thoughts of why an amateur misses is that they don`t mount their head properly on the stock mainly head up, therefore shooting off the barrel which is in the up plane . Then as they pull the trigger they more than likely stop the gun so Over and Behind would be my guess . Probably 3 ft high and 2 ft behind . Like to see this with tracers or better yet in a down pour but nobody shoots in the rain .
