    like shoes, you must measure with a gun first by trying it on.
    point a gun straight up in the air with it on your shoulder. grasp the gun and bring it down level. your head should contact the wood 2 to 3" from your thumb joint.
    if it fits, you then measure from the trigger to the butt. that is your lop.
    then, you can go shopping on the internet.

    remember beth, time zones here are different here. my body is still on east time but im dead tired earlier.

    Been skeet shooting for a couple of years. I went fron Browning A 500 to Baretta 391 Parallel Tgt which I added adj comb, forcing cone & porting by Rhino. Haven't really seen the benefits of "gun fit.".

    I suppose I'm trying to get to the phase were I only look at the bird. I was raised on bullseye and Tgt picture was Holy Grail. I stopped my instinct shooting because it wasn't consistent, now it seems they want me to feel the lead again. My average was 41 and I'm almost back there but w like to get to the next level.

    I just got a Ducks Unlimited 11-87 in 20 ga. What are the problems I should be looking for ?
