    Keep it simple and work on the base fundamentals - feet & hold point .
    George Digweed who is probably the greatest living Shotgun shooter says that most targets are missed by two feet , not two feet out at the target but the two feet your standing on . If your not set up properly you are hindering yourself even before you call pull .
    As you get better add new things to try but only after each step is ingrained.
    Ask for help from knowledgeable people that have proven results, the problem with many clubs is that the most helpful people are often not very good shots . Even if the top shot wonít help you , watch what they do you can learn alot from watching the shooter not the clay .
    Sorta like the old adage ...miss in front.

I think I'll improve on my 17/25 with a bit more practice, which is why I'm planning to travel to several different clubs around the region to shoot most weekends,
    In skeet you repeat your 1st miss. Thatís why he got a ď2nd crackĒ itís your repeat or 25th target.
