I just saw a clip of some Olympic trap shooting. They were shooting with head up. How do you shoot? Do you look down the barrel?

I swing on the bird, both eyes open barely conscious of the front sight get out in front and dust it. Yeah my head is up I guess. Never thought about it. Seems natural to me.

Is this what is called shooting where you looking? Leon Measures taught this technique.

My left eye overtakes my right eye dominance when my gun is mounted. So I close an eye and look down the barrel

HMMM, Just watched a video of the mens final, all had their head down. What was more interesting is the all
their guns were 'low rib', not a raised rib in the group. P_102
