HOW TO HIT A MOVING TARGET: FORWARD ALLOWANCE
AUTHOR: LUTHER CUTTS, HEAD INSTRUCTOR (NSCA LEVEL 3), COMPETITOR


Perhaps the most discussed aspect of shotgun shooting is the manner in which a shooter establishes the forward allowance, or lead, required to hit a moving target. Forward allowance is essentially how far in front of a target the projectile(s) must be directed to account for target movement during the time of flight of the projectile(s) from the muzzle of the firearm to the target. While it applies to all kinds of firearms, in this context we will only be considering shotguns.
