Andrew can provide highly personalised guidance to correct
gun fit, one of the most significant factors in shooting. He
will make a shotgun shoot where you are looking, as
instinctively as you would point your finger at a distant
Eye dominance and shooting from the correct shoulder are
basic principles vital to shooting a moving target with a
swinging gun, along with hand placement and correct grip.
These are important issues to prevent sloppy gun mounting,
helping the comb to fit consistently in the cheek and making
the barrels point exactly where you are looking.
Guide to Measurements
A gun fits when the muzzle is seen on top of the action
after the gun has been raised to the centre of the shoulder
and fits snugly in the cheek.
Stance, posture and being relaxed are essential, when the
stock is being raised to take accurate stock measurements.
At this point the use of a pattern plate combined with a
skilful assessment of shooting technique is necessary to
study the shot placement and make alterations to fit.
The stock will not be altered if technique requires practice
and improvement, until the client is mounting, swinging and
pointing to an acceptable standard.
The Importance Of Grip
Ensuring you hold your gun in the correct way and that
your hands are correctly positioned (as is similar with
golf) is a vital part of ensuring a smooth, consistent gun
mount and upper body movement. Almost everyone’s hands and
fingers are difference (particularly Women’s and Children’s)
and thus accommodating the measurements in a correctly
fitted gun are vital. This is rarely focused on with such
attention today and Andrew offers a stock alternation
service should adjustments be required.
