Due to the Bolting Rabbit’s target travelling in front of him crossing left-to-right, there are two extra factors that Iwan needed to become aware of.
John reminds him that his right-handed bodies will not move so naturally left-to-right as it does right-to-left, therefore he will have to learn that targets crossing in front of him left-to-right will always need more lead (a bigger kill picture). He also demonstrates that right-handers commonly push the gun stock away from their cheeks when they are making lead on left to right targets.
Iwan is up for the Rabbit and he watches a few and prepares his plan. He points at one with an empty gun then loads and sets up for his first target – a miss well behind the target. On his second go, another miss behind. John physically demonstrates the distance that Iwan needs to see between the target and end of the barrels. He also encourages Iwan to sit the bead well under the target.
John shows Iwan a rabbit clay close up explaining that it is much more robust than a standard clay as it has to be strong enough to be hurtled along the ground.
Iwan tries a few more; growing frustration as he misses them all! John calms him and demonstrates the size of the kill picture again. John then takes £50 from his wallet and tells Iwan if he misses the next target 2 feet in front he can win the £50! Iwan is confident and shatters the clay! He has fallen for a very old gag that never fails because all the shooter is thinking about is 'missing in front'.
