Any recommendations on a gun fitter(s) who specializes in, or who has expertise in, fitting shotguns for women? I live in Pennsylvania. Sporting clays are my game of choice. No interest in hunting.

Thank you!

I should clarify that I LIVE in Pennsylvania, but am not opposed to traveling to meet said gun fitter. Though someone on the east coast would be nice . . . If there's no one in the east at all, are there any ANYWHERE?? I'm seeking suggestions here, because there's opportunity for comment from the women who have used those services or who may know someone who has.

Thank you!

Just saw this post. I can think of 2 in Florida that I would recommend. In no particular order would be John Woolley in or near Jacksonville ? Amelia Island Florida. he will likely have a booth at some of the big shoots in Florida this month.

I also recommend Don Currie, the head instructor for the NSCA. He is also based out of Florida. Both can be found easily if your Google-fu is good.

No personal experience but I bet you could contact Nemacolin Resort and they might likely have somebody to refer you to.

I can get you their particulars if you would like.

Another alternative is NSCA Nationals in San Antonio in October. Many fitters and stock making gurus.

If you still have not found a fitter you might consider contacting John Higgins. He does quite a bit of work with women and is an excellent gun fitter and is one of the few people that I know of who has a try gun. John teaches in GA and SC mainly and I can give you his contact information if you would like it.

if you can get to florida, see Mike Lupold at S & S Plus stocks- he is florida for the winter. otherwise they are in Polson, Montana. or Get an appointment with Jim Greenwood. Both are excellent.

I've had a bunch of trouble with fitting for my daughters (small frames). Lots of collar bone and cheek bruising. But we finally found a fitter that has a lot of experience with the nuance of female geometry and had answers to all of our questions. Not cheap, but I was so impressed with the patience they showed in fitting and with the quality of their work. They also coached on hold which was a subtle part of the issue that every coach including me had overlooked minor details. The fitter is Wenig (http://wenig.com/) out of Lincoln, MO.
