Wooohooo, I did it. :D :D :D
This has been a nagging issue for a long while now, Mismost will relate.
Been shooting skeet with an ocular dot for 3-4 years now, recently I’ve been shooting a lot of SC.
At first I couldn’t hit a thing. One particularly irritating day I ripped my glasses off and shot.
I hit every target from that point on so I shoot SC without a dot.
Yesterday I took the dot off while shooting skeet.
I shot a bunch of incomers only then I shot out goers only then I shot a regular round, 22 eh not bad really.
I shot anther round after that a 23 hey it’s getting better.
I shot 2 more rounds today in 20-30 mph wind a 23 and 24. :shock: :shock:
I am very pleased with the results so far. {hs#

Bob, I opened this with the horrible fear that there may be photos involved. Okay, it may have been morbid curiosity but thankfully my fears were not justified. :wink:

Were you closing an eye, or were you naked with your eyes open?

The dot should be renamed "shooter's pasties".

Funny you should say this. I had a tape placed on my glasses by my coach when I first started shooting. Now that I shoot at a 22 to 23 average, I am beginning to wonder if it's time for me to go NAKED. Maybe I should wait for the weather to warm. :lol: :lol:

I think you may have inadvertently invented a new sport there Bob ....though I can't see it catching on in Alaska or Scotland (tho maybe- those Jocks are hardy boys;) )

Sounds like good fun- although Im not sure moobs, boobs & recoil reducers are a winning combination :)

Hi Bob - well, I don't think I can further comment on the literal sense of your thread title and still keep my appetite given the general age and condition of skeet shooters :shock: :lol: :lol:

So I will go back to the original subject of shooting without an occluder.

If this continues to work for you, that's shithot and go for it big fella.

But if you find yourself starting to miss low house targets, particularly incomers, as the day goes on and fatigue begins to set in, then don't forget about the patch.

This is the case with me...I can shoot without the patch for some period of time, but I can't count on it alwasy so I wear the occluder.

Best of luck

This is a huge issue and I’d have to be on the lookout for it.
So far it seems my shooting get better as the day wears on but who knows it’s still very early.

Freaking eyes, I hate eyes issues as if hitting those orange b@$t@rd consistently is not hard enough! :roll:

Thanks for the encouragement. {hs#

Kate, I think Moobs are very popular in the game of skeet.

I went for the paper early one morning, nekit. The door blew shut behind me. I gave a special knock at the door, you know, the "wake up the wife but not the four teenage daughters knock". Well, luck was not with me. By the way, it is not unusual for a long time user of the dot to be able to remove the dot with acceptable results. I do it all the time. However, don't try it if you are shooting for money.
