Next time a dove came at me, I mounted the gun on its beak as it approached good shooting range. The barrel actually blotted the bird out of my sight. Since, like most incoming doves, it was quartering slightly—not flying right at me—it emerged from behind the gun barrel. With the gun already mounted, all that remained was to swing in front of it and pull the trigger. It was almost like a trap shot, but coming at me instead of going away; see the bird, swing the mounted gun in front, and shoot. A little while later, I had the chance to try the same method again, and it worked just as well the second time. All of a sudden, my problem shot was the easiest shot in the world, and I had added the anti-aircraft mount to my dove-shooting repertoire. It’s not the wingshooting form I believe in, but it works and I’m going to keep on doing it.
