Gun fitting pitfalls

For those that would like to read the absolute ultimate treatise on gunfitting that I have ever read anywhere, scoot on over to the Cold Duck blog and read Michaels thoughts on professional fitting with a "try gun"..
He pulls no punches, and tells the tale egg-zactly how it is.. The good, the bad, and the ugly... And, it's all true!

This is what the stockfitters and hook and bullet magazines don't tell you!

  1. Thanks for the kind words, Bill.

    There are two books more or less at opposite ends of the spectrum that I’d recommend to anyone interested in gun fitting.

    One is “Gunfitting: The Quest for Perfection” by Michael Yardley (Safari Press: Long Beach, 1993). Yardley’s writing shows a width and depth of topical knowledge that qualifies him to be described as a professional gunfitter.

    The other is “Shotguns For Wingshooting” by John Barsness (Krause: Iola, WI, 1999). Barnness brings a practical American perspective to gunfitting.

    When the time for cabin fever sets in, read both books – each is a fine read on its own – and then settle down by the fire with two fingers of coffin varnish and a sleepy dog to decide what might be the right gunfitting path for you.
