Got out and shot today on the woodlands sporting course! First time shooting in forever. Had it to myself and shot delay by myself. As the name implies, short windows. Had a thirty yard left to right crosser with a 24 in diameter tree 2/3 the way across the open window at the natural break point. Clay flys behind the tree. I tried my usual and missed. Then I thought about Anthony’s short window technique in the video. On second shot, I inserted to the lead after the tree and missed with a stone dead gun. Duh! On the third shot, I inserted to the lead, ran with the target for a micro second, and smashed it! It’s a technique I would not have thought of. Still need more practice with it but it works and it’s in the free chapter!

I am the author of the advanced thread previously. From all the positive comments, I also ordered the Foudations blue ray.
I am a master class shooter who fought a long jouney to get there and I found Foudations to give several very valuable points.

1) Move the body, not the arms when shooting. This keeps the shoulders from rolling and possibly shooting under.
2) Don't look all the way back at the trap( contrary to Wendell Cherrys teaching), rather save your max focus for the targets break zone. Allow the peripheral to pick up the target.
3)On quartering out presentaions with the traps to the right or left of you, look through the barrels ( ghost barrels) by keeping the gun in the pocket but lowering the shoulders ala Bill McGuire.

Excellent information and more than worth the cost. With what I saved this month not shooting tournaments more than paid for the entire set.

Be healthy all,
Dave


Excellent Gunsmoke, good thoughts on quartering, McGuire is a master at dropping and lifting the shoulder. In the heat of battle, we tend to forget it. I did on the Main Event this week on a true pair low trap target, hot, going straight away - over the top, "lost pair."

Bought the 2 disk set and juat finished watching the initial foundation disk. Personally I did not find it that insightful. It is really good quality and all but the info too me was very generalized and basic. I have not watched any of the advanced videos and assume there will be a lot more "golden nuggets" to take away.

I do think the foundation video will have some benefit when trying to get my wife to learn to shoot so I am not yet disappointed in buying the set vs. Just the advanced. However thinking of her situation as a completely new shooter I am disappointed that the foundation video does not have chapters dedicated to teaching the various methods and when and why you would use one over the other. He uses the terms swing through, pull away, maintained lead, and intercept throughout the video assuming g the viewer already grasps those concepts without any demonstration. This is fine for me and most that would buy this but not for those that want to use it to teach a total newbie.

I dont want to be totally negative as there were a few things in the foundation video that I think I can practice and try to incorporate into my shooting.

I will probably start watching the advanced video tomorrow and expect it to be more insightful.

WHAT
You are critiquing the info before you view it. Please don’t try to instruct your wife. Let her shoot some and she will figure it out. The first tape helps ground you in the basics.
Been shooting for 30 + years still got something from first disc and a lot from the second disc.
Open up your mind and give it a chance!!

Not critiquing anything before I see it. My critiques were on the 1st video that I did watch and my statements on the 2nd video were being hopeful that they are more specific and helpful than I found the 1st video.

As for not instructing my wife I agree that is why I was thinking she could watch the 1st video so it is coming from someone other than me. It is tough trying to instruct your significant other. The same message is often time received better from others. Either way I am not qualified to be coach. She has shot her 12ga O/U a few times but we have not got the fit correct just yet. In hind sight I would of got her a Semi Auto....

Teaching and learning are both served well by going about it in a progressive manner. The first video covers what one needs to know and understand before they jump into the second one.

I’ve been shooting sporting clays since 1985, the year my oldest child was born. I’ve watched the second video at least 15 different times. And I learn something new each time, as there’s a lot there to digest.

These two videos are nothing short of outstanding. I have to question the knowledge and/or the intentions of anyone who fails to see that.

Interesting. I find most people when watching or attempting "advanced" ideas or methodology don't have the fundamentals squared away where the "advanced" ideas do them any good.

Fundamentals aren't sexy, but the difference between a pro and an amateur isn't that pros have figured out all the "super advanced theory" stuff; it is that they have mastered the fundamentals and don't make as many mistakes on them when it is go time.

I would spend a lot more time on the fundamentals than the advanced but YMMV.

I still practice fundamental today as I did 20 years ago. Just as they described in video.

If you have the discs (BluRay or DVD) and ever wondered if you'd get even more out of a session with Anthony, I can say you absolutely will.

I got my discs in March of last year I think. Watched them a number of times like most in this thread. I seemed to get something every single time I watched. My shooting stayed somewhat inconsistent even after some of the summer and fall events. I was able to begin to see the target better last year (better than any year before). I was also able to incorporate staying in front of the target, even on trap / teals (had come from behind in the past). I think I was improving over previous years but my consistency was still lacking and the improvement was slow.

Since I missed a bunch of shoots last year I decided in the fall to see if Anthony had any spots open which he did. After a couple of 2 hour sessions late in 2020 I've really been trying to incorporate even more of his homework into my shooting this year. So far so good. I've only been to a handful of events but my CCFR is nearly .2 lower than my overall from last year. Granted it is early but in every previous year that number settles to nearly .5 very quickly and then stays there.

One of the really simple things that proved very valuable was just my choice of position within the stand on targets that were from my left or right shoulder before moving away from the stand. In the videos he states the same thing that he said in person (twice in person on 2 different presentations). When I heard it on the video it was a kind of, "well of course you position yourself correctly in the stand". In person, it took on a whole new meaning for those 2 presentations we worked on. I then took that into my second event this year, recognized the presentation and immediately positioned myself in the stand to give me the best view of the outgoing target possible. I hit 7 of 8, not bragging but prior to this I may have been fortunate to get 5 and would have settled for 4.

There are a ton of other things in the 4 or so hours I shot while he was instructing. He was able to really get me to understand the importance of the merge and how it frees up your vision to be able to focus on the target from the merge to the break point on targets with that much visual opportunity.

Every single thing was on the discs but I can guarantee you that even after you've watched them a dozen or more times an in person session will propel you even further.

Thanks again Anthony and best wishes for 2021!

This is from another instructor and I feel Anthony would agree or I wouldn't have posted it in his section.

"Advanced skills are not complicated…being nothing more than the basics mastered."
