    Ok here goes. My gun was shooting very good, right where I was looking!100 straight in singles and Handicap.

    Problem I've lost weight in my face, guns not shooting where I look anymore.

    For the experts, when you loose weight in your face (starting point) do you usually have to move the comb in or out?

    Thanks, Bill

    You'll want to move into your face and up a bit. Larry

    Make it easy, just gain the weight back. LOL

    Seriously, what high 2 said. Toward you and up. Nothing major though. Very small amount.

    The reason for in and up is that you probably lost some weight in the face as well. Not so much fat in those cheeks...the ones on top. Now your eye moved farther into the comb as well as downward. Now you need to compensate by moving the comb in and up.

    Bill,

    In addition to likely needing to raise the comb up and in, depending on how much weight you have lost you may need to add some length to your stock. I have lost over 100 pounds and I had to add 1/2"
