    If a guy or gal lost a lot of wt ie: 30-50lbs. and your face got thinner would you move the comb closer to your face to keep your eye lined up down the rib?
    thanks

    I lost a little weight, and had to move the comb toward my face.??????

    Put your smokepole on paper at 13 yards using the Winston method. Guessing can make you want to wrap your gun around a phone pole!

    Mike, You may be asking the question on the wrong web site. Very few trapshooters know about any results of weight loss.

    I lost three pounds and did not make any adjustments. I hope I find my lost weight soon.

    I have lost 126 pounds so far this year and I have had to move my comb towards my face twice to keep my gun fit. I thought I would need to raise the comb to keep the same point of impact but in reality I have had to lower the comb. I guess that my head is getting further over on the comb and my cheek bone is more over the comb that beside it and that is causing the height to rise. Go to the patterning board and shoot the paper or steel at least 5 shots to get the true POI and then make adjustments. Bill Parson Jr.

    I joined a health club last year, I didn't lose a pound. Next year I will try going there see if that helps.
