It all goes back to the coaches what they teach and allow is NOT always right!
and asking if you have to switch the colors around if you are left handed.Someone who shot well probably mounted his gun this way and now everyone is emulating him.
Winners focus on winning, losers focus on winners.
If a good shooter had one purple sock and one orange on, people would start doing the same thing.
A couple of reasons:Just out of curiosity, how do you know if you've never tried it?
The way Jared does it is smooth George. It’s butt up, just before the butt touches the shoulder he swings the barrels up to close so that as the butt touches the barrels latch. He doesn’t premount then close. I never thought I would like the method but it sure worked for him.A couple of reasons:
1. For me it goes against the basic laws comfort for your body esp. if you have a break open shotgun where the action is fairly tight......high leverage point on your shoulder and close to your face.
2.There are times where I shoot a semi auto or a pump....nuff said there.
3.If you have a slower shooter next to you.....how long do you want to hold that shotgun up to your shoulder??
I have more reasons but really they are enough for me to not want to waste my time with a pre mount against my shoulder then a close. The less wasted movement the better.
