Break More Clays With A Well-Fitted Shotgun

Break More Clays With A Well-Fitted Shotgun

National Shooting Sports Foundation

NEWTOWN, Conn –-( Shotgun instructor and gun-fit expert Gil Ash discusses the terms “length of pull,” “drop at comb,” “cast off” and “cast on” and how they relate to the proper fit of your shotgun.

A gun that fits you well will result in more broken clay targets on your scorecard and more game birds in your vest.

Remember that gun fit is connected to consistent gun mount, so practice properly mounting your shotgun before seeing a professional for a fitting.
