how to aim a shotgun with two beads

Your main focus should be on the bird; use your peripheral vision for knowing where your gun is. Jeff, I have two suggestions for you when taking new shooters out. When a shooter sees space between the beads, the gun will shoot higher than if the beads were stacked in a figure-8 pattern.
Second, use reduced recoil loads. Really a good system once you're accustomed to it. If your mount superimposes the mid bead on the front bead, then your gun will shoot more to point of aim and cover the target with the front bead. I never noticed, until I bought a second barrel for my Perazzi, that the location of the mid-beads on the two barrels are drastically different.

Fiber optic sights are becoming popular for shotguns, as they greatly increase the brightness of the bead by collecting light and directing it to the shooter's eye. I've had a chance to shoot with both 2 and 1 bead shotguns, and I was getting better results with two beads. My question is do I close one eye and aim when it comes to shooting turkey, or is it two eyes open as most would suggest for other shotgunning activities, and should my eye be focused on the bead or target? Just line the two beads up, rather than trying to line up the front bead and the back and center of the vent rib. When the eye is above the surface of the rib, the gun's POI is above its point of aim. If your shotgun mount positions the mid bead below the front bead, your gun will shoot high, so float the target above the front bead- similar to a hand gunner's six o'clock hold. One is 16-3/4" from the muzzle and the other is 13- 1/2" from the muzzle! Nonetheless, people that handle shotguns for the very first time often experience troubles putting the bead sight to good use. He didn’t want to shoot any more due to recoil. So it is with shotgun beads: They're there not to be looked at. but i dont know how to aim with it because their is the guide rail for the shotgun scope and then the sight so....if any one can help me please do All trap instructions I've seen mention aiming with two beads lining them into a figure 8. The higher your eye is above the rib, the higher your gun will shoot. You will see how the back of the barrel seems to go up and down.

You should know where to point the gun, and what lead you should have, we all miss, why that is because of the lack of swing.

This is extremely intuitive for most humans. In order to have an enjoyable experience on the field with shotguns, all you need is good hand-eye coordination. Shooters want their guns to shoot high so the pattern will impact above the gun's point if aim.

First of all, start them with a 20 gauge shotgun which has less recoil than a 12 gauge. I've heard it call "bird barrels." First shot he assumed no one misses with a shotgun, 2-5 he couldn’t point using a bead. The Internet's Best Resource for Shotgun Information. Reply. uncommon_sense says: October 29, 2015 at 09:25 . The “sights” on an unscoped shotgun are your eyes. If your shotgun mount positions the mid bead below the front bead, your gun will shoot high, so float the target above the front bead- similar to a hand gunner's six o'clock hold.

It supposed to help in tracking and leading fast moving targets. I’m assuming your barrel is fixed to the rest of the gun and you’re not making this thing. Single bead aiming question. You must use the correct Point of Aim to determine the POI of your shotgun. A traditional shotgun is aimed by “pointing,” which means (if you have it fit and mounted correctly) that it will shoot where you look. This is my first turkey season hunting with a shotgun (Winchester SXP field) which has a single front bead.
This is my first shotgun, I am trying to get into the trap shooting.

The position of the eye relative to the rib indicates the approximate POI (point of impact) of the center of patterns. If your mount superimposes the mid bead on the front bead, then your gun will shoot more to point of aim and cover the target with the front bead.

Try crazy glue or something made for metal like JB Weld. The correct point of aim reference for shotguns can be different depending on your shotgun, your bead alignment/type or the type of shooting you are doing. (The eye is slightly above the level of the rib.) Since shotgun beads are only used by the peripheral vision, generally a larger, brighter bead works best. As I have mentioned before, it is all in the swing, Just look at all good sports people with there swing and the don’t have little beads stuck on their racket, golf club, base ball bat etc, just good eye, hand and body coordination. Point of Impact and Point of Aim are closely related.

If you want to test this, mount the gun, point the front bead at an aim point and then move your cheek back and forth. Instructors call them "miss-me" beads. Here's why "drawing a bead" on a target is the worst way to shoot a shotgun: As long as you're looking at the target, your eyes guide your hands, which in turn direct the barrel to the right place.

Easiest, if you don’t care about looks is two BBs. Aim with the bead and you can kiss the target good-bye.
