first off ya dont aim a shotgun :P and all the comb/rib does really is makes your gun point higher even though you feel its dead on. therefore, float the bird right on your bead, your shot will go over top and you'll break the bird.

As a matter of fact, you CAN aim a shotgun but it is ill-advised... The beads are a reference point to make sure the gun fits you and is pointed in level with your eye. The way I shoot you start with a low gun, watch the bird and slowly mount the gun (while still intently watching the bird) once the gun is in your shoulder and touches your cheek, fire.....I don't use the beads on any of my shotguns, even pulled the front ones off.

Do use the beads and irons for slugs though...

Pheasant hunting is one thing...so are skeet and trap...Go out to a decent clays range and try to aim at a chandel or a bateau, or like this past weekend we had a 75 yard left to right crosser. The trap and skeet shooters naturally aimed...and missed. all 6 times lol

i shoot trap and sporting and hunt many years ago when i learned not to aim is when my scores became respectable. check your lead and the barrel stops and you miss. its like baseball do you watch the bat or glove? no EYES [2] on the ball .concentrate on the target

Trap shooting is a mind game. Find a shotgun that fits you well, pattern it an bust some birds. Both eyes open an lead the bird. Good luck!!

The only time you want to aim a shotgun is when you are shooting at a turkey or a deer

Seen it done. No B.S. they had the barrel wedged between a bumper on a pickup. And with a bag of lead shot beat on it... With a lot of liquor and laughs successfully bent a field gun barrel to make it shoot high..... You can even bend the curve of a stock for a right hander, to curve for a lefty. Dads a southpaw and with a vise a heatlamp and some time... It works....
