Clay pigeon shooting expert


By inference I take it that crossing targets launched above head height don’t present a problem to you?

If that is the case then there’s no real reason why you should find these other crossers difficult because both, after all, need to be given the correct amount of forward allowance for them to be hit.

If anything does need bearing in mind with low targets of this kind, it’s to keep your weight well forward over the front foot to prevent lifting your head from the stock when it’s mounted.

Shooting down on a target also increases the risk of missing it over the top but this can be avoided by keeping the muzzles just under the line of the bird as you move, then mount, the gun.
