the sort of person you could pick out of a crowd at the With neatly trimmed wool tweed jacket and precise Davies is the stereotype for a British shooting He in the chief shooting instructor for Holland a venerable London firearms company that was producing a limited number of fine shotguns in the year before Texas became a In the conservative British still is pro ducing a very limited number of fine You can buy one for about if you pick a plain model and dont mind waiting years for Even If you dont have a Queen Elizabeths ransom to pay for a shotgun and you need a weapon before the fall hunting you still can profit from tips from who recently appeared at the Dallas Gun Club and gave shooting In teaching to shotgunners per year for the last 20 Davies has a pretty good handle of the miracle of the dead You know the dead bird Im talking about the one you shot and then watched while it flew away Davies looks as natural holding a shotgun as Jack Nlcklaus looks with a golf club or George Brett looks with a baseball In he likens the game of shotgunning to a game played with a small Shotgunning is an Instinctive just like Davies Shooting a moving target requires the same eyehand coordination as hitting a small ball in the case of the bird and The said is that bad habits creep into shooting style and selftaught shotgunners may never learn good Thats the value of a shooting he I can stand behind you and immediately identify and correct a shooting In a controlled we can repeat the same shot over and over again until you get it Left to your own you may never correct the Davies said he finds that Americans have a tendency to be far too deliberate in their shooting probably because most Americans who fire a shotgun also fire a ri Deliberation is positive for negative for Aside from trying to aim rather than point the Davies sees numerous problems in properly mounting the weapon in the first A shotgun has no rear The position of the gun against the shoulder and against the shooters cheek determines the sight An im properly mounted gun does not shoot where you think it is If a gun is bruising your jaw or upper you are not mounting it Davies Too many people try to drop their head down to the gun stock rather than bringing the stock up to their he The proper way to shoot is to hold you head fairly erect and lift the gun up to the Dont hold the shotgun at port arms pointing straight up unless its dangerous to do When you are preparing to mount the gun for a its better to hold the weapon horizontal to the gun butt held just under your arm Davies A quick movement lifts the shotgun to firing position against your Davies teaches the swing through method of shooting moving With the gun you start swinging from behind the swing through it on the same plane as the and fire as you pass the This Davies works for all field shooting On rising like quail or pheasant flushing in front of the Davies said he thinks most hunters have a tendency to shoot over the This is the shot that requires the most precise gun mounting because youre not actually swinging on the Davies You are shooting directly at Most shotguns shoot slightly American guns less so than English If you block out the bird with your gun bar you shoot over the Try to shoot at the birds This will even on a rising On crossing Davies recommends starting the bird and swinging past firing just as you Right to left he generally are easier for righthanded shooters than left to right merely because of the difference in Even though you swing through the you should never lose sight of the Davies The one ex ception is the incoming You still begin behind the in coming swing and fire just as you lose sight of the i Fishing Report AUSTIN i AP Here is the weekly fishing report as compiled
