Gil’s blog from Camanche Hills

Gil’s bloganother great clinic at comanche hills in Ione California…..4 days of great weather and great shooters of all abilities…..incredible blue skye dominated the weather….a little cooler than normal for that time of year but all in all a great time…..the greatest relief was that Larry Skinner got through his heart procedure on Friday and all is ok and he is back to himself again….had several shooters for 3 days this time…..the played out early on the last day but progressed dramatically during the weekend…..ages from 22 to 83 both men and women…..i stand convenced again after 40 plus hours of instruction that seeing the bird behind the barrels is something we are just now scratching the surface of and it will eventually become second nature to all shooters that study with us…..it is as if the gun can be in the picture and it is ok…..whether I shoot right or left handed if i program the right picture in the preload and shoot only when the picture is stable i hit the target at any distance…..the toughest part of the transition is that you have to go through some muzzle awareness as the brain becomes accustomed to the new picture and establishes the new focus ratio…..like when i shot the 100 yard shot…..it took several shots to get the stable picture and then to hit the target i had to look harder at the target….. so is it the chicken or the egg question>>?????….dont know but do know this….there is something to seeing the bird behind the muzzle…..i am noticing that my preload is easier and more specific when i demo a shot or shoot on my on ……we are about to send our Parcours guns back to Neal Bauder to have our stocks finished……if you want to have a perfect stock made check out his web site……I got tired of modifying the stocks on our new guns each year so we decided to have two custom stocks made……Vicki’s wood is from the republic of Georgia across the big pond and man is it beautiful……can’t wait to see the finished product…..we each had Neal make us a pattern stock for us and i modified them till they were perfect……had to take a little more off the inside face of the stock on Vicki’s gun as it kept hitting her in the face…..something she did not like and had never experienced…..Neal was able to install our ISIS pads on the pattern stock which made our pattern stocks exactly like our finished stocks …….a great advantage…..you will see more about this journey in upcoming blogs and in an article we will be doing in the magazines…..this has been a real journey as it was the first time we have ever had a custom stock made……it is a journey and a process that i am glad we went through…..it will definitely make me a better gun fitter in the future and will always in the future as in the past recommend a pattern stock as the beginning step in the process of having a gun that really fits…..nealbauder@gmail.com….517-260-1786……give him a call if you have a question…..I have kreighoff and Beretta stocks with the OSP dimension on them if you would like to try a stock that is really low enough and thin enough for you to really shoot well……Neal an us are coming out with a series of replacement combs to fit Gaerrini, Blaser, Kreighoff in the beginning….these combs will fit the factory hardware and will come with shorter posts that simply screw right in place…..the comb with be 30% more narrow and 3/8 of an inch lower which when installed will allow the shooter to use full adjustment to achieve a perfect fit…..we are finding that most of the stocks on the target guns are too high and wide when they are in their lowest position……with our new comb kit and for $300 including shipping you can have a comb that will fit the factory hardware and enable you to get full adjustment in your factory stock…..in less that 5 minutes…..the bugs are just about all worked out and will be offering them for shipping soon……the combs will fit the factory cut outs but will not be made to match the grain in your stock….they are replacement combs so you will be able to shoot your gun well without having to have a custom stock made…..we are also looking at pricing on combs sent in to Neal and he will take your hardware out of your comb and install it in an OSP comb…..lemeno what you think about this….we will be back to you on the pricing on this and a few other new products we are working on…..
