SHOOTING LESSONS

John Bidwell

It’s not one to follow if you shoot Sporting where you’re faced with all sorts of different target speeds and angles.

However, some Trap and Skeet shooters find it useful – a ‘bent knee’ stance helps them keep their head low to the comb when the gun is pre-mounted.

You might like to try it on crossers and going-away targets with a flat trajectory but it’s a style which tends to restrict gun movement on steeply angled birds or those travelling at different speeds and in different directions.
