Good Shooting Starts With Foot Position

Rifle shooters stand with feet far apart and toes pointed in directions that do not suit a shotgunner. A shotgunner must rotate his body in the direction of a moving target and that starts with proper foot placement. A shotgunners feet should be in a position much like shooting a free throw in basketball. Feet about shoulder width apart, toe of the right foot at the instep of the left foot {for a right handed shooter}. Toes pointing towards the emerging target. This will allow the body to rotate in BOTH directions easily. If a right handed shooter has his feet far apart and left foot far ahead of the right, he will shoot behind a hard left target nearly every time. DWT
