1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    The stock dimensions on your gun dictate the shooting form (gun mount, stance, body & head posture) you can use. That form either enhances shooting success or diminishes it. "How" you shoot really matters.

    That is what "gun fit" means. To shoot up to your potential, your stock dimensions must match your size and shape. When they do, the correct shooting form can be used (with all its benefits). When they don't it can't. It's that simple.

    That is what "Stock Fitter's Bible" is all about. The book describes the correct shooting forms, how each stock dimensions promotes or defeats its use and continues to explain what can be done to make your stock fit someone with your conformation.

    I purchased this book a month ago and am using it to improve my gun fit, The history of stock form is very interesting and the relation of all dimensions; pitch, drop at pad, cast, LOP, etc. to shooters head position and proper form are very well described.
    a great book

    I got Rollin's book in December. Have read it twice (very important) and have since adjusted my BT99 Golden Clays. I just wish I had this book back in the 70's and 80's. Would have made ATA "A" a lot sooner. I'm a Senior ATA Vet and this book is worth every single penny. For you beginners, do yourself a favor and get it---right away. Then take your time and do as Rollin say's. You won't be sorry. Mike Cunningham Groveland, CA cunninmp@hotmail.com_

    Rollin,
    Just sent an email asking for price on ten books. Seems like these would be great trophies to offer at several of the clubs I contribute to in northern California.

    Rolin, Recieved my book last Thursday. Have gotten thru page 68 and have found a number of great tips mostly on stance and cheek placement. Wish it was warmer and not a foot of snow on the ground to run a few rounds to see how it really feels. Thanks for the quick turnaround. Great book. THANK YOU Brian

    I must say that it does shed light on things one would never think about. I read the book in two days and cant believe what I learned. It is worth every penny and I suggest everyone read one. Rollin also is a true gentlemen in every way. He will return all your e mails and is a pleasure to talk to. Rollin goes out of his way to make it right if you have any un answered questions.

    As a new shooter I can say I found Stock Fitter's Bible very informative. Many other sources I found gave general advice some of which was conflicting but Rollin's book explains the effect of each adjustment clearly and logically and weaves in the history of stock design. A great reference book and a good read. _______________________________________________________________________________

    I purchased a precision fit stock and the stock fitter bible at the same time. Using that book I set up the stock to fit me. The result is a stock which makes the gun fit me and it shoots where I look. Perhaps the most important information gleanwd from the text was the importance of pitch. Take the guess work out of stock fitting and purchase the book.

    One thing to remember and Rollin even advises this also, there is so much great information in this book you have got to 1) Read it twice, 2) Make changes slowly. Then you can really smoke targets,
    Thanks for the book Rollin it help me a great deal to set up my PFS...

    I agree with Fred.
    I purchased a copy several months ago.
    I have shot a Model 12 since the mid 70s but in my later years found out it didnt fit anymore.(may never have fit)
    I had had an adjustable comb installed and an add on balsa rib for testing.
    It now shoots high enough and my scores have increased.
    It took a little playing around, but it was worth the effort.
    Rollin explains very well how to do it.
    I thought I needed a little of this and a little of that but found out I needed much more.
    Regards....Gerald

    "Best non-hardcover stockfitting book by a white male resident of Wisconsin who has never worked as a stockfitter I have ever seen...same diagrams as that 'other' book, but half the price!"
