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 object.

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
Gun Fitting

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.
