    I may be in the minority here but, I don't pay much if any attention to my shotguns front bead when shooting clays. I try to mount the gun, cheek and shoulder, the same each shot and keep my eye on the clay. My favorite wing shooting quote is "You don't use the hood ornament of your truck to aim when you're merging on to the freeway." Gp

    I went to the Spirit Halloween store last year and bought fluorescent orange nail polish to paint sights with. This morning the Eye Dr. told me my eyes were in pretty good shape for a mid-fifty year old. Then he gave me my prescription lol.

    Exactly.

    When wing-shooting, once you start to focus on the front sight you tend to aim instead of just pointing, and the swing stops.

    I had Lazek surgery done on both eyes a few years ago... before then I was legally blind. Now I can see leaves on a tree a mile away but now up close to the first 2 feet is fuzzy.

    I was watching the Men Skeet Team Final from Lotano, Italy, the other day. Denmark vs. Italy. Four of the six finalists had about 3" of white tape wrapped around the muzzle.

    Makes sense once i looked down my barrel with the green tape on and pink bead before I changed the colors. It makes it clear a day with the color contrast.

    Another way to fix a shotgun that shoots too low is to bend the barrel. Years ago my father had maybe a Remington 11-48 that didn't shoot where it was aimed. Factory Rep that he met at and event of some sort said bend the barrel SLIGHTLY. Rep said put barrel over a fender (cars had fenders then) or a log and apply a small amount of pressure. Shoot to see if that fixed it, if not do again until fixed. secret being very slight bend to fix. Took two or three attempts to fix my father's gun. I have never had that problem and other than the 50 Chevy I started driving in the 60's I have never had a vehicle with fenders.
