    What percentage weight do most shooters put on their lead foot. Also how tight is your head to the stock. Rock solid or just firm. Mike K.

    Just slightly more than on the foot that's lead-free.

    90% and pivot/swing on the front foot, the rear foot only enough support to keep me from falling over. And bury the stock into my cheek. Almost no grip on the forearm, use that hand to support the forearm only and swing the entire body; very unlike the skeet stance. Skeet works fine for short yardage, but about the 24-25 you must become precise. AJ

    If you hold too tight you can only go up. Hold snug and then come into the gun as you see the bird.
