    Unless you have visited a good stock fitter or fitted your gun yourself, you are not shooting up to your potential.

    The reason is simple: You are probably not able to use the shooting form (stance, gun mount, body posture) that time has proven result in the best scores.

    To a great extent, the stock dimensions on your gun determine the shooting form you use. This is especially true for your head and neck posture following your gun mount. This is important. The consistency of your gun mount determine the position of your eye relative to the rib when you create sight pictures and fire. Your shooting form also affects your ability to swing smoothly and accurately to targets.

    To use the shooting form taught by virtually all trap coaches, your gun's stock dimensions must allow it to be used by someone with your size and shape. When the stock doesn't fit the shooter, he/she cannot use the best shooting form. It's as simple as that.

    Your best bet would be to visit a good, professional stock fitter - one that would correct your shooting form and then change your stock's dimensions so you could use it.

    If you cannot do that, consider getting a copy of "Stock Fitter's Bible." The book explains shooting form in detail and how it relates and is affected by stock dimensions. It also explains how to check stock dimensions and change them to allow the best form to be used.

    Books have sold all over the U.S. and to shooters in 19 foreign countries. Visit my Website (URL above) for more information.
