With shotguns - both eyes OPEN, always. Trap - pre-mount. Skeet - I'm better when I don't pre-mount - have no idea as to why. Country Doubles - 1/2 pre-mount. Sporting Clays - depends on how I'm shooting that day.

Since I have been shooting more 5 stand and sporting clays my skeet game has gone away holding premounted. I can actually shoot skeet right now holding low gun like the international guys better since I shoot low gun for 5stand and SC I see the birds better holding low gun. I can tell you hold point is very import for low gun.you need to find it for you

When I premount I have a hard time picking up the target. After I find the hold point my old eyes just don't bend around like I would like. I'm hoping glasses are going to help.

mount your gun, lift your head but keep the butt on your shoulder.

^^^ That is how I usually do sporting, but on a familiar course I'll often start from high-ready. Skeet - always low gun. Trying to shoot a pre-mounted sxs at skeet is begging for a low bird to hide under your barrels.
Trap, pre-mount, but I seldom do trap anymore.

Depends on the course for me. If its challenging, I premount but raise my head. If it's a course or station I do okay at, I do a low ready. If it's a station I usually nail, low gun and I'll even dis and re-mount between shots on the pair. I only shoot 5 stand or sporting clays so I cant speak to trap or skeet.
