The National Shooting Sports Foundation has started to put out a lot of videos with instructional tips. This one with Gil Ash makes a lot of sense about how to “slow down” the speed of the bird or clay pigeon. He uses the analogy of merging on to the highway. If you are standing still and looking at the cars whizzing by, they look like they are moving fast. However, if you are moving at a speed close to the other cars, everything seems to be moving slower.
