Tips from an Olympic Shooter: How to Break a True Pair - 1

There's not much you can accomplish with a shotgun that Dan Carlisle hasn't already accomplished. Carlisle is an olympic medalist, a world champion and has been a world-class shooting instructor for more than 40 years.

I had the opportunity to shoot with Dan two weeks ago and gain some insight on the basics of good shotgunning.

One of the first things we went over was breaking a true pair, a key to winning in sporting clays and filling your game bag this fall. If you haven't spent much time on the sporting clays range, a true pair is when two birds are thrown simultaneously.

The key: Focus on making the first shot, but don't sit back and admire your work once the clay turns to dust. Move your eyes and your gun to the second bird immediately.

a good training aid for beginners is to throw a few pair with an empty gun. this helps you slow down and focus realizing you have plenty of time to break both birds.
