It appears that 16" is the minimum that one can use for a sight plane. No matter how the stock is configured. I tried a charger today to see how the ranch hand might play out. It has a range of about 35 or 40 yards. I don't think the ranch hand will be much better. The charger had a wire stock to set it in that was more substantial than the Ranch hand.
"I do not aim with my hand; I aim with my eye. He who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I do not shoot with my hand; I shoot with my mind. He who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I do not kill with my gun; I kill with my heart. He who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father."
