    May have been asked before.

    Which would be more difficult to shoot well?

    1. A gun with the stock that was too short.
    2. A gun with the stock that was too long.

    Thanks

    It's more difficult to shoot well with a stock that's too long.

    Sometimes you punch yourself in the face on a stock that is way too short because you have crawled halfway up the stock and your face is resting too close to your hand. Recoil will getcha.

    How do you know if it is too long?

    Too long will interfere with your swing. It will slow you down, or at least it feels that way.
