    I am LEFT HAND shooter and left eye dominant. When looking down the rib of a shotgun and the beads are stacked we will assume the poi is where you are looking. If by moving the face on the stock the MIDLE bead is to the RIGHT of the front bead which way does the POI move, or does it move at all.
    Thanks for any and all the opinions

    The point of impact should move to the right just as your left or sighting eye has.

    Depends on how you may be canting your head. Use a pattern board to see what's happening. Lefty Bob

    if the middle bead is moving to the right in relation to the front bead, the POI is moving to the left. An easy way to see this is to put the gun on the floor. look down on the barrel and make a line with tape down the sight line. now make an exagerated move with the middle bead, letting the front bead remain constant and make another sight line with the tape. Which way did it move?

    You got your answer

    If you only moved your head the POI will remain the same. Inorder to change the POI you have to move the gun. The POI will change when you realign the beads to the stacked position, while keeping your head in the new position. HMB

    "you need to get an adjustible comb installed on that shotgun"

    If you do have an adjustable comb installed, make sure to tell the installer you are a lefty so the adjustment holes are put on the proper side. Just say'n................

    dblell , with the mid bead to the right the gun will shoot to the left. Make sure your eyes are level and head straight. Are you rolling your head to the left over the comb? If your eyes are level, you need to move the comb to the right.
