Hi there,

Did she bring up her concern about not being able to fully wrap her hand around the frame or was it you who noticed it and said something?

I ask because you shared with us that she:

-- has no problem handling recoil

-- is an unbelievably good shot and puts others to shame

-- has always claimed that the guns she shot were comfortable

So, honest question, what's the problem? It sounds like whatever she's doing is working just fine. I used to be a competitive archer and my shooting style was slightly different than others. My coach kept trying to suggest ways to bring me in line with more traditional technique, but my performance suffered. I kept trying to explain to her that, if I'm hitting the center, what does it matter if I'm shooting too fast? Fair enough, right?

Here's my take - If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
