'Stock Fitter's Bible
"Stock Fitter's Bible" is the most complete book on stock fitting and shooting form ever published. It was written for those who want to improve their shooting skills but cannot visit a stock fitter or want to know what stock fitting is all about before they do.
The book opens with a history of the development of personal guns. It continues with the evolution of locks, powder and gun designs that allowed stocks to be shaped for more accurate shooting.
It explains how shooting form (gun mount, body posture, stance) evolved during the Victorian era, throughout last century to the modern shooting forms in use today.
Each stock dimension is discussed in detail along with its relationship to shooting form and other stock dimensions. The benefits of correct shooting forms are also explained in detail as is how they relate to individual stock dimensions.
Readers will learn how to check their gun's stock dimensions, how well they fit their particular size and shape as are options for changing then when they don't fit.
Finally, there are chapters about improving target visualization and centering, the psychology of shooting and a complete glossary so readers know the meaning of all terms that are used in the book.
