    I'm putting this out to you guys who have been shooting awhile. I've been shooting about a year now and was wondering if I should have my gun professionally fit to me. I shoot pretty good with it they way it is but always think if it was tweaked just a little I might finally get that elusive 100. Thanks, Randy

    Buy a PFS first. Tweak it yourself. Then if you want custom stock, you've got the setup and dimensions for the stock maker. Then sell the PFS. Better yet, keep the PFS and save yourself $$$$$$$, a lot of dollars. Unless you just like pretty wood.

    I'm a 'south paw' so I had little choice.

    Best add-on I ever did. Have never looked back.

    Have had all guns fitted since that first one.

    Schoolcop,

    Before you go to a gun fitter, spend $25.00 on Amazon and buy a copy of "The Stock Fitters Bible" by Rollin Oswald. You will, at the very least, get a very good insight into fitting a gun. You will probably be able to tweak your gun to fit you and if you still want to have somebody else do the fitting you will be able to understand what they are doing and why. A little knowledge goes a long way.

    Pat

    Most definitely tweak it. If you don't mess with something that already works, you are not a trap shooter.

    Here's a really good book for you. The best illustrations and pictures I've seen. And the text is wonderful too. Very easy to read and understand. It's quite the guidebook.

    You should be able to tweak that 90T to fit. Adjust it so the beads line up the way you like every time then go shoot.You will not have to think about the beads just focus on the target.

    Keith Heeg is very, very good. He raised my average by 2 birds per round and that gave me a lot of straights. What is that worth? It cost me 25 bucks. Bill

    Thanks John, the 90-T I got from you has become my main gun and the one I had is now my back up. I just started shooting caps since I got it and have gained 1 1/2 yards with it in about 3 weeks. I absolutely love that fixed full barrel.
