VIDEO: Gil Ash Shares Tactic for Shooting Crossing Clay Targets


Range owners and firearms retailers, like many other business owners, often agree that the idea of keeping up with social media and maintaining their business’ relevance across its various spaces can be daunting. There are dozens of social platforms and ways to go about connecting with potential customers, and it can be easy to get bogged down by the seeming need for continuous and engaging content. One way to eliminate that is with shared content, which can be a powerful tool in growing a business’ online presence and engagement.

NSSF encourages range owners, FFL retailers and others in the firearms industry to promote safe, comfortable and proper shooting techniques by sharing some of our many informative videos. Whether your customers are new to the sport or seasoned marksmen, sharing this video from Gil Ash, for instance, is a fun way to instill safe gun handling practices and improve your viewer’s skills while helping to make the shooting sports more accessible to everyone.

In this video, Gil Ash of OSP Shooting Schools reveals an important concept for shotgun shooters. When shooting a right-to-left crosser, a right-handed shooter must look across the shotgun barrel to see the target. The same concept applies to left-handed shooters when shooting a left-to-right crosser. Gil stresses that, “In order to shoot crossers consistently, you have to get used to looking at the bird across the barrel.”

Gil Ash is a full-time, NSCA Level III certified professional shooting instructor, with a regular column in the official publication of the National Sporting Clays Association.
