Understand the stock drop on a shotgun

This video provides the viewer with a basic understanding of a critical buttstock or shoulder stock dimension called drop. Larry Potterfield, CEO and Founder of MidwayUSA, explains the importance of this dimension and how to measure it using some classic shotguns. This dimension is measured from a line extending rearward from the top of the bore to the point of the comb, and the point of the heel. A gun with a large amount of drop will typically shoot low while a shotgun with very little drop will shoot high. This video provides typical dimensions for a field gun and provides the information necessary for a shooter to make an informed decision.
