    I found Holly’s video very helpful, especially shooting skeet and sporting clay’s. It was a reminder of how far some of the leads are! Most of my misses: shooting behind! This can be a good review before shooting…

    This is a very disturbing video. To new shooters it teaches, or at the very least implies, that you can see the “lead” necessary to break the target. I have no idea how far I “lead” the target at skeet or the bird when grouse hunting. I let my “computer” on top of my shoulders calulate the lead, as God designed that computer and intended. I do know that when I:
    1. Shoot a gun that fits me.
    2. Keep my head down tight on the stock.
    3. Keep the gun moving in the same plane as the target or bird.
    4. Do not pull the gun off my face (accomplished by pulling the gun into my shoulder, locking up and rotating at the least from the hips).
    5. Focus 110% on the target or bird during
    the complete procedure.
    6. Point the bird with my left index finger
    on the forearm.
    7. Do not “track” the bird.

    I end up with a broken target or a grouse in hand(if the dog can find it).
    Of course with grouse hunting it is all over in 1-2 seconds (my best estimate).
    I am sure the author meant well but this is
    just plain silliness, similar to the gigantic gun club posters on the wall by Remington many years ago stating in inches and feet how far to
    Lead a target at each station.
    A new shooter would be much better advised to buy a copy of Robert Churchill’s GAME SHOOTING on eBay and read over it many times.

    • There are several styles of shotgun shooting, the one demonstrated by Ms. Heyser can best be described as “constant lead” shooting, which is often the preferred technique for American Skeet. While constant lead shooting may not work for you, it works for others.
