This is the most trouble free technique for teaching the basics of shotgun shooting and is the preferred technique for most coaching targets.





The target is "picked up" by pointing the muzzles of the mounted gun at the target, at the point where it is clearly visible on it's trajectory, and the gun moved smoothly with it.




After establishing the speed and direction, with the gun in the shoulder, the muzzles are moved ahead of the target to  establish the correct sight picture  of forward allowance or lead.




The trigger is pulled once the correct lead is established and the gun continues along the target's trajectory.




The target breaks !
