If your barrels were patterning level or centered, you would have to cover the "bird" with the barrels to hit it. This gun is perfect for the modern check on the stock method of shooting. The guns that would cover the birds are for the old heads up style of shooting. You see this in hunting art from the 30's and before. (I just thought the artists didn't know anything about shooting, until I shot with some older gentlemen that had formal training by their grandfather.)

Great gun! A friend of mine had a Model 21 Grand American Trap Gun, The previous owner (who I know and shoot with) is 5'2" and had the stock sawed off to fit him, the later owner had it glued back but with the fitting of the pad enough of stock was removed the grain didn't line up. A true pity!
