I have had rather a disappointing shooting season, partly due to my inability to stop putting all the weight on my back foot and leaning on it when shooting. Is there a tip or trick I could practise before next shooting season?

The Royal Berkshire Shooting School (RBSS) says that this could partly be caused by having too wide a stance. Its instructors suggest keeping your ankles closer together, so you are conscious your weight is on the front foot, making sure the gun is being swung through the left arm, and not with the body.
The RBSS urges you to have a lesson with a reputable shooting instructor who can cure this habit within an hour (just think of it as equivalent to the cost of a brace of pheasants), and you will reap great rewards for the 2012/2013 season.
