NSSA/NSCA is the governing body for FITASC in the United States.

I like the longer sighting plane for trap, hence I shoot a 34" unsingle for that. I shoot quick, right out of the house and hold high, so little gun movement.
I like the lighter weight gun for skeet, so I shoot a 32" 20g for that.
I shoot kinda sustained lead for skeet. Generally, that is spot on for station 1, 7 and 8, 2ft. for 2 and 6, 3 ft. for 3 and 5, and 4 ft. for 4. Works for me.
I shoot a 32" 12g for SC.
All three balance at the hinge with pad adjusters, adjustable combs, and variable length (I shorten the LOP in the winter with thick clothing, t-shirts in the summer).
Other than length, all other settings don't change since I got the guns dialed in for me.

Sold all my other guns and stick to those three. Took a while to get to what I liked, but I am there so no new guns in my future (probably ever). No gun envy. How boring is that.

ps: My Trap gun shoots about a 70/30 POI, while my SC gun and Skeet gun shoot 50/50.

I just pulled this off of page 44 from the NSCA website.

. Shotgun Mount & Position—The shooter may start with a low gun or a pre-mounted gun when calling for the target.

Your citation was for FITASC. The gun has to be unmounted for FITASC. Also max of 1 ounce loads.
Yes, I was in the FITASC section.

This is a change, as when I was shooting a lot, NSCA rules required low gun.

No, National Sporting Clays Association is doing FITASC.

But NSCA is part of NSSA, so in a way you are right.

Back in the 80's, some cyclists that were sponsored by certain manufacturers, like Greg Lemond being sponsored by Huffy, would just put the sponsor's stickers on better equipment. Lemond road a Look frame with Huffy stickers on it. Same goes for some wheels that the pros were using. Pretty comical.

I watched a program several years ago about one of the top sporting clays shooters and he used several different techniques based upon how the target was presented. Sustained lead on the further targets, swing through on the closer ones.

What are all the different techniques:

Swing Through
Sustained Lead
Pull Away
Spot Shoot

I know I am missing some. What are they? Once upon a time, I knew them all even though I did not use them all. Cannot ever remember spot shooting unless I was so screwed up I was just pulling the trigger and praying the bird and the shot met up at some point.
This is not new as it happens in the action shooting sports also. Max Michel doesn't really shoot a Sig 1911. He shoots a single stack STI lower and guts with a slide cut and machined to be an exact copy of the Sig 1911 slide. Probably even came out of the Sig Sauer Custom Shop.

You can absolutely shoot pre mounted in sporting. I shoot NSCA tournaments all over the mid atlantic and see it all over the place. Use it myself on trap style presentations. FITASC you absolutely cannot.

Look at this list of Kolar sponsored shooters and their guns. These people are some of the best in the country in their respective disciplines. Of particular interest is the fact that 5 of the 6 Sporting shooters are shooting 32 barrels. And 9 of the 10 Skeet shooters are shooting 30 guns.

Who was the "Colt" shooter in the 90s who shot a double stack? Jerry something.

And I remember talking to someone involved in NASCAR year ago, that no matter what oil sponsored them, EVERY team ran Mobil 1.
