    At the yardages we shoot, I think you could cant the gun like a gang-banger with a 9mm and it would'nt affect the poi more than a few inches. My 500 yd rifle is different. An cant induced error of an inch at 50 yds is 10 inches at 500. I used to know how far 1 degree of cant moved the bullet at 100 yds. Now I just look at the level attached to the scope mount. For a shotgun, I treat it like a non-issue.

    The reason you cant a gun is to put the sights infront of your eye while keeping your head level. That being said, a right handed shooter would cant the gun to the left. HMB

    I can shoot a target faster w/slight cant. The reason is I can pick up the target faster.

    I shoot a target faster than the average shooter, always have.

    That is the reason for my 120%+ POI, the target is being broken on the rise.

    That is the reason why most 27 yard shooters w/high averages shoot a high POI gun.

    Some examples, Ray Stafford, Phil Kiner, Randy Ross, Pat McCarthy, Ricky Marshall, just to name a few, I know there are a lot of others.

    I hold gun paralell and my moves to the target is right and left w/ very little gun rise, this is the result of 120%+ POI.

    How many of these cant thir gun I would say very few.
