    Hi Everyone,
    Now that I've got about 750 rounds through my new CG combo,
    would like to go to a good stockfitter or instructor here
    in Northern California. I live in Groveland with Sonora being the
    closest major city.
    I know Dan Bonillas lives over in Los Banos but not sure if he
    does this.
    Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Mike,

    I went to Dale Tate and would recommend him. He is located in Ione CA which is close to Jackson, so not to far from you. He can include a lesson with the fitting which is worthwhile. Dale Tate 209-763-9040.
    Good Luck!

    Use Dale Tate, he worked for Purdey before coming to the States. I met him first at the old River Road Sporting Clays, and then he fitted a Beretta 687EELL for me when he opened a new business at Comanche Sporting Clays. I found he does excellent work, is very knowledgeable about every facet of Shotguns and shooting, and I think he is reasonable. Take a shooting lesson from him when you pick up your gun.

    Only Stockist/Maker I would use to final fit a bunker gun -- which has to fit absolutely perfect.

    Hey,
    Thanks to all that replied. I'll call all that listed.
    Oregon a little bit far to go, but I met him at the
    CA State shoot and they are great.

    Hey Everyone,
    Talked to Dale Tate over the phone.
    He told me a couple of adjustments to make
    then if that doesn't work to call him back and
    he'll see me anytime. Honesty beyond reproach.
    What a nice guy, most would have said bring it to
    them and it would make me a better shooter.
    Thanks again to everyone that replied.

    If you are still interested in instruction after getting the stock fitted, I know that Bonillas has done that in the past. I know that Daro Handy still does clinics and he is a very good instructor. He is in Sutherlin, Oregon but travels all over. I posted his website address above. He would be worth calling.

    Bonillas was more like a coach, Handy was more like an instructor (complete with lecture and shooting).

    Get that gun fitted and GRIND 'EM.
