This is a good topic and hoping that it continues to be discussed, particularly any input Anthony can provide. Thanks!

I always see the target come out of the trap if possible but I am not focusing on the target when it comes out. In general I always see the trap but I never look at the trap. My eyes are generally set no further back than half way from my hold point toward the trap. When I first see the clay come out it is out of focus or fuzzy. My shift from soft focus to hard focus occurs as the clay is entering the break point. On a target with more time and more of a break zone I not only see the clay in focus for slightly longer and likely see it even clearer.

As a general rule my shift from soft focus (no detail) to hard focus occurs as or after I have inserted the gun.

Keep in mind if the gun and clay are not in sync you will be unlikely to see the clay clearly.

Anthony, when your eyes move to that half way point do you shift only your eyes avoiding any head movement? Thanks!
PS: It’s taken me some time to truly understand that when good shooters say we must see the bird clearly that the key to that is gun speed matching bird speed.

Always move my eyes first and only my head when necessary.
