Was just wondering how many people have had their shotguns properly fitted to them.I bet a lot if not most do not and I believe that is a big mistake.Would you buy a pair of shoes or pants that did not fit,of course not.I believe most people adjust to their shotgun instead of the other way around.I have done it in the past and it makes a world of diff in my opinion.Just want to see how many have or have not had this done to their shotgun,whether target or hunting gun.
I have for my target guns, not for any or my hunting guns. Problem is that getting your shotgun fitted is an expensive endeavor. Most guys can't afford the fitting or paying to have a custom stock cut for them.
not really sure how true that is,,,
I mean life is a compromise ,how does a perfect fit help me?
I only target shoot for hunting practice and fun.
the gun mounts and points naturally for me.
i'm sure there is tweaking room with the fit but compromising here allows me to pick up any configuration of gun from 20g skt to 12g 3"mag full
they all shoot the same for me
Shotguns are made for one size fits all. However, not all are built alike. There is a reason that bespoken shotguns are made to fit the buyer. Most people do not need a fitted gun, but if they had one they would most likely shoot better because the less you have to think about when whingshooting, the better you will shoot. At least most folks, some would be hopeless with a fitted Purdy.
When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
I've had all mine adjusted for LOP where needed, rifles and SGs. Usually once that's done, it may not be perfect but close enough for me. Fit is why the current trend in new semi-auto guns is to include LOP spacers and shims for drop/cast. O/Us are another matter although some have the adjustable combs
Never had a scattergun fitted to me. But when I bought my trap/sporting gun, I bought the one that fit me best......no preconceived notions as to which gun I was going to buy. Went into a big gunshop and had them lay every o/u in my price range on the counter. I started mounting guns and either laying them in the "keeper" pile or handing them back. What I ended up with is the most naturally-pointing gun I've ever held. Might not measure out perfectly by a fitter. But I bet it's not far off.
