Re: Precision Shooting 1-Part 1: The Basics of Your Rifle
The LOP paragraph remark about shotguns is folklore. Length of neck, shoulder width, musculature (obesity), face shape, cheek bone shape and eye set and even stock pitch are just some of the variables...and since the eye is the rear sight on a shotgun this is most important with shotgun sports that require a fast smooth consistent gun mount like hunting, sporting clays and international skeet. Wish it were that simple to just lay the shotgun across your strong side forearm and extend it till the last digit pad fit on the trigger BUT it doesn't. It is so critical on a shotgun that they should come with two thicknesses of recoil pads; one for warm weather and a shorter one for cold bundled-up weather.
