Really, there are no pat answers to help solve the problem of hitting crossing shots consistently, except to bang away at crossers at a sporting clays range, 5-Stand or the 3, 4, and 5 stations in skeet. It takes practice, and perhaps somebody like Gil Ash or Marty Fischer to analyze your shooting and help you figure out what you keep doing wrong. Then, it’s a matter of making the proper corrections. Maybe you’ll become a shooter as good as Marty or Gil (or Vicki, Gil’s wife and fellow instructor, for that matter). Short of that, at least you can improve enough to deter any snide remarks from your hunting buddies when you start banging away at those flying gray devils this fall.
