    Canting the

    I seem to be canting the gun somewhat. I'm aware of some of the products out there. Could I please have some input from the fellas here as to what products and adjustments that may help? Your advice will help me make a decision. Thanks, Jim?

    Be sure that the gun is the right length first. A gun that's too long can cant to the left while one that's too short could cant to the right. If needed, a 100 straight pad adjuster is a good choice.

    xringjim, as long as you don't have a high point of impact, canting makes little difference and may be corrected if you wish - or not - with no effect on your scores. After all, the best shooter in the country cants like crazy.

    If you are right handed and you cant the gun a few degrees to the left and your POI is in the right place, you are doing good. Canting the gun puts the rib and beads in front of your shooting eye, this technique allows you to keep your head and eyes up straight and level, which is a good thing. HMB
