    I have read with great intrest lately on the articles on point of inpact. I will be getting a SKB next week with an adjustable rib, so I need a little help, or maybe I should say a lot of help. I understand that it is adjustable from 50/50 up to 90/10. so if I set up my pattern target at 13 yards, and get my impact point. where do I go from there, the rib or the comb. keep it simple please. but put me in the right direction thanks ED

    Shawn's way works just fine. Bear in mind that moving the rib also changes POI, so you have to readjust. Just set the POI up for between 2" and 3" high at 13 yards, then go to the line to shoot. That's where you will be doing your important adjusting. Once you've got it set up so you are smoking targets, go back and shoot for POI at 13 yards again, and record the results. Now you have a reference you can always return to after experimenting, etc.

    For a how to on setting your new gun up from scratch, read this thread. http://www.trapshooters.com/noframes/cfpages/sthread.cfm?ThreadID=175188#266657

    edthearcher if you are buying a new gun or if it comes with a manual do by all means follow all instructions and you should have no problem setting it up if you listen to to much information on here it will only become confusing. JMO

    I like the advice from zzt. The 13 yard POI from a rest may or may not indicate where you shoot the gun from the line. Where the gun shoots is not the same thing as where you shoot the gun.
