Flashlight Drill - Shotgun Secrets
« on: October 10, 2019, 11:44:14 am »
Ran across this interesting "Move and Mount" shotgun wingshooting drill.  I think it would have application accross all shotgun skill sets.
What do you think?

    I agree - that is an interesting drill.  It focuses your attention on what you are seeing rather than what you are feeling like I was taught but I can see the usefulness of it.   The only time I ever saw a flashlight used like that was when a stock was being fitted.  The gun smith spent a few minutes watching the customer go through move and mount drills while making notes.  Then he taped a flashlight under the barrels ( sxs double gun ), turned it on and had the customer do move and mount drills concentrating on a few different fixed points on the wall.  Apparently the idea was to understand how the customer's shooting technique worked and fit the stock to not only the shooter's body but shooting style. 

    Good video.  Thanks for posting it.   :thumbup1
