Gun Fitting

“What’s hit is history, what’s missed, is mystery”
Thos. Hood 1799

“Gunfitting” is the craft of shaping the gun stock to suit the physique and style of the user. Age, gender, body shape and size govern the weight of the gun and the finished measurements. Dexterity and eye dominance matter too! Every new or previously used gun supplied by the shooting school comes, “fitted” and usually, at no extra cost to the client; the worst advertisement for a shooting school would be to supply a gun to a client which, despite their skill, does not shoot straight!

Similarly, how can, “a would be” shooter be confident with a purchase, without having first shot the gun? It is a fact also, that many established shots suffer inconsistency, often due to poor gun fit.

Come to the shooting school and have your gun assessed for fit. Following any necessary alterations, you will witness the difference for yourself! Moreover, you can purchase your gun from the shooting school, we have a vested interest in ensuring you, “shoot straight!”

“Take the mystery out of missing!”

    How It All Began

    Throughout the late 1800’s shooting live pigeons, released from boxes or, “traps” was an extremely popular sport amongst shooting folk. The use of the live bird for a target was, however, looked upon by many as a barbarous act and was soon outlawed. For a while the...

    The Browning B25

    Almost ninety years ago, John Moses Browning perfected his B25 action. Built in Belgium, the famous gun-making house of Fabrique Nationale were chosen to produce this shotgun, hand built and engraved; they still do to this day and pretty much to Browning’s original...

    Buying a better gun

    Buying a better gun

    Often I am asked, “Why should I spend on an expensive gun when modern production models do the same job?” Indeed, I am one who strongly advocates that “provided the gun fits and the user has mastered a polished preparation and gun mounting routine, the value of the...
