The angled butt plate removed all the gun flip on firing - this obviously made a big improvement to all my second shots and my gun mount was much more consistent since it now fitted properly into my shoulder pocket.
The heightened comb and lenghtened heel meant the gun sat higher toward my face so I didn't have to crane my neck down to get my cheek down to the comb.
This was all looking good, so we fitted the ShotKam and had a few outings - the conclusion was that there was a great improvement but for one thing.....
The gun was tilting slightly so that the horizon wasn't level (if you know what I mean I believe it's called cant) No matter how I changed my grip this was not changing.
We decided to twist the but plate around slightly to compensate and all in my world became level again!
Having come to the conclusion that the B325 was the best it could be and it was only my aim that was not perfect, all we needed to do was to wait until Pete's B125 was ready for collection we were ready to take mine in to face the saw at Greenwood Gunsmiths .
With the thought of the winter looming and our precious, soon to be restored elderly Browning ladies, we decided that we should invest in some 'wet weather guns'.
Due to their vintage, the Brownings did not have chrome lined barrels and the woodwork was soon to be better than when it left the workshop new, these were great for normal shooting days and would always be our 'go to' guns, but did we really want to subject them to everything the English weather could throw at them and risk the damp and the rust?
Pete had lusted after a trap gun with an adjustable comb - if it had chrome barrels and wasn't necessarily a looker to love and cherish, then this could double up as a wet weather gun. If he was going to have a shot at trap shooting then why should I be left out....? We didn't want to spend a fortune and finally settled on a Beretta 682 for him and a Fabarm Gamma 2 for me. Both were multi-choked with adjustable combs, not expensive and seemed fit for purpose.
A good job we did because I was soon to be 'gunless' apart from the little S x S which I had other plans for!
