    You can shoot better. Read "Stock Fitter

    If you want to shoot better, you need to use the best gun mount, stance and shooting posture (shooting form). To do that, the dimensions of your stock must allow it. They must match your particular size and shape.

    The easiest way to make that happen would be to visit one of the several great stock fitters across the country. They would teach you what the best shooting form is for the shooting discipline (trap, for example) and then change the dimensions that would allow you to use it.

    Not everyone has the opportunity to do that, however. It is the reason "Stock Fitter's Bible" was written - for shooters who want to improve their shooting or reduce felt recoil. The book explains shooting forms and then discusses each stock dimension and shows you how to check yours and determine if and by how much each dimensions would need to change to fit you.

    Two of the elements of the best shooting form are the use of a stance that allows you to swing to the most extreme targets but no farther and to shoot using a shooting posture that allows natural, upright head and neck positions. These are much better than shooting with your head and neck turned, leaned or tilted forward in an unnatural position that invite greater felt recoil and score-robing head movement during swings.

    To date, this and the first book, "Stock Fitting Secrets" have sold all across the U.S. and to shooters in 18 foreign countries. If you cannot visit a professional stock fitter, your only option to making your gun fit and eliminating a limitation to your shooting success is to buy a copy of the book.

    Seeing an actual stock-fitter is still the best option (wink!). But I still believe this is the best book ever written on the subject.

    Did you ever get your plagiarism issues straightened out?

    Pocatello,

    Yes. After contacting the author and publisher of another book and agreeing that no more "Stock Fitting Secrets" books would be sold, both agreed that there was no problem (IF there ever was one).

    That was when "Stock Fitter's Bible" was written. It is a more detailed version of the original book (without two graphics that someone had claimed were plagiarized). "Bible" has more stock fitting details, expanded shooting form information and shooting tips on its more than 15 additional pages.
