A good Gun Mount will increase scores and bags


Gun Mount, following on from gun fit, the next vital thing to get right is a good solid consistent gun mount. Using LASERSHOT during practice, each time you fire, the intense red laser will show you exactly where your gun is pointing, this is not necessarily where you think it is pointing.

The accuracy of LASERSHOT ensures that when you pick a point of aim & fire, you can see exactly how accurate your shot was, the point of aim can be the corner of a picture, the key in a lock etc. Mount the gun, aim track, fire & follow through.

Now dry mounting becomes more realistic and enjoyable, therefore gives you "Quality Practice" and this will be reflected in your increased scoring performance.

Using LASERSHOT try this simple test:

With your LASERSHOT in the muzzle of your gun, raise and mount the gun 5 times and fire when as soon as you think the gun is mounted correctly, you will be surprised, without practice, how irregular your Gunmount is, therefore hitting birds, whether wing or clay will be very (forgive the pun) hit and miss. If your hit pattern is as shown on the below, just think how far your aim will be out at 40 yards?


With LASERSHOT you can correct this problem

With regular practice of only a few minutes a day using LASERSHOT your Gun Mount & gun control will improve, you will soon be seeing your hit pattern developing, as shown below.


Parallel Mount


The hand/eye coordination needs a helping hand and will only take a short while to perfect. Get into a ready position with your feet correctly and comfortably placed, weight slightly over the front foot.

For wing shooters, use exactly the same procedure but starting with your gun at a 40° angle/

Dipping or Raising Barrels to Mount


If when mounting you dip or raise your barrels, LASERSHOT can identify the extent of the problem & help to overcome and cure it.

To do this, stand in front of a wall or door, select a point of aim at eye level keeping your finger on the trigger (triggering the laser) mount the gun and you should see the laser light rise evenly and consistently up to the point of aim.

If you are dipping or raising your barrels you will see this immediately. Regular practice will overcome this problem, resulting in you getting onto the bird quicker with a more consistent gun mount.

The example shown on the left of the above picture is dipping, the gun starts at about the right point but then dips as the gun is mounted and as the gun is raised to the full mount. The shooter overcompensates and eventually gets on the point of aim.

The centre example shows a similar problem but for raising barrels- the start point is too high.

The example to the right is a perfect mount & the minimum of movement can clearly be seen.
