I have no excuses now!
on September 13, 2013
I was struggling getting to the next level in both my target and hunting abilities. I have always been somewhat proficient but was never close to being where I wanted to be. I started researching several options and it always came back to fit. I never put a great deal of thought or effort into having a shotgun fit to me, it had always been as I was old as a child, you just need more practice. Well, practice wasn't cutting it for me, no matter how often I went. I even bought my own throwers to alleviate some of the cost and time constraints and still that didn't help. I got better, but not much. It wasn't until I ordered Rollin's book did I truly understand all of my issues, I was creating more than I was solving, bad form, bad sight plane and poor mechanics. I read the book, I re-read the book, I bought more books on the subject, but I always came back to Rollin's manual(it really is more of a manual than a book, although it is easy to read, there is way more information to digest than you can imagine.) I worked on each issue and then moved to the next, LOP was always wrong, drop at comb, cast, pitch and more, I was overwhelmed! I re-read each section and played with that aspect of it, and I saw improvement. I moved to the next section and saw more improvement and I continued this until I was playing with every aspect of fit and seeing the correlation of one to another. I keep the book on my bench next to my saw and pad fixture and constantly re-read it. I actually took it to heart and now every gun I buy gets fitted to me or my daughter. I don't make a cut or an adjustment, with out re-referencing the manual! If you are struggling, buy this book and read it, over and over, take it with you when you go to shoot, and enjoy comfort in shooting, because when they fit, they are a sheer joy to shoot, no pain from an ill fitting shotgun!
