Example text

If the tests indicate that your dominant eye consistently lines with the correct eye, then most likely you should be able to shoot with both eyes open. Again, remember that the gun barrel will want to line up with your dominant eye. If you shoot right-handed and your right eye is strongly dominant, they should line up perfectly, even when the left eye is kept open. Binocular vision can really help the shotgunner lock onto the target. The speed, angle, and distance is best judged with both eyes open.

Aligning the butt, or back-end, of the stock to the shoulder is only part of mounting the gun properly. You must also line up the muzzle end of the gun with the eyes as you raise the gun up to the cheek. What happens when the butt of the gun touches the shoulder pocket first? The head is often dropped down onto the stock to complete the mount. This minor head movement can make it difficult to focus on the bird. Excessive head movement accounts for many misses in the field or clay-bird shooting.
