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.

    Your shooting will probably improve if you correct your shooting form (stance, gun mount, body posture). To be able to do that, your stock dimensions must allow it - must fit your size and shape. A good form also reduces the felt recoil shooters experience.

    "Stock Fitter's Bible" explains both form and fit with instructions for fitting your gun to a correct form when you cannot visit a good, professional, stock fitter (the best way to have your gun fitted and improve your shooting).

    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 just finished reading my copy and I wish I would have had it several years ago. In fact today, I had the copy with me at the gun club and my cheek was getting a little sore. I quit and was leaving but I pulled over read the section on adj combs and tweeked my comb and lowered my adj pad about 1/8 of inch went back to shoot. Missed the first three because I was paying more attention to my bead picture at the end of the barrel. If your gun fits your barrel will follow your eye. I made the presumtion that the gun fit! I never looked at the end of the barrel again. I mounted the mod 12 said pull followed the bird with my eyes and pulled the trigger and dusted 22 straight with no discomfort to my cheek. Great book Rollin! TY Striper

    Rollin,
    This is just one of the things I got from your first book: I was having trouble getting the correct mount in my shoulder pocket with any consistency. I came across your solution of raising the elbow. Problem solved. Heck, I was about ready to start looking for a different recoil pad. There have been others. Thanks a lot.

    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
