Have fun, Montana. Don't Cheney anybody in the side of the head.
It's also very important to keep your sight picture. Don't lift your head from the gun until you see the bird break over the top of the barrel. Most people's greatest problems (once they get the timing down) is shooting and lifting their head up too soon, somewhat similar to jerking the trigger on a rifle.
