    I have lowered the heel on my stock and it made it 100% better however I shot today and I would miss one or two hard lefts.when shooting post 1# I switched my eye hold lower than my level gun barrel and closer to the center.I think it resolved the lifting of my head sometimes because it starts down and a locked down position.....Is this what you do???? or what do????/

    I have been lifting my head due to pain in the back and bending over. When I stand straight I shoot well and the back does not hurt. Just bought a support belt at Lowe's for the lower back and that should keep me from bending over and take the strain off. Fred

    I like to hold a level gun about a foot left of the front corner of the house. This lets me see the hard left bird as soon as it leaves the house. HMB

    I find that if I lift my right elbow it locks the gun to my cheek, if I get lazy I get sloppy. Good to lock it in. Now i just have to remember it on the line

    I lift my head on low rib guns. Where the recvr impedes the look down range for the bird. I bet a lot of guys do the same.

    Rumor has it Monica had the same problem, until Slick Willie straightened her out.
