With bird season in full stride, my customers are coming by to tell me how delighted they are with the new coverts they had discovered during preseason scouting and how much fun it is carrying their new (new to them) little vintage, subgauge shotgun. When I ask how the new puppy is doing in the field, the typical answer is, “fantastic! I only wish my shooting was just as good.” As a wingshooting coach, and always one for job security, I suggest I could help. The common response is "oh I know what I'm doing wrong. I'm peeking. I just have to make myself stop peeking."
There is that one gun in my safe that is my go-to gun. Don’t get me wrong, I have several guns that I love to shoot and shoot well, but that one gun I shoot the best. It comes up easier and smoother than the others and I never feel like I have to make a subconscious adjustment before I squeeze the trigger. My guess is you have that go-to gun as well. It is your go-to gun because it fits you best.
