This is something unusual that I would appreciate comments on. I have owned dozens of long arms, and I keep noticing that despite the fact that I am fairly tall, with long arms and big hands, I keep noticing that rifles with shorter than usual length of pull (LOP) seem to fit me better, and are easier to shoot accurately. Examples would be old WWII military arms, which tend to a short LOP, the M1A, and in particular some rimfire guns like my Savage 17HMR caliber rifle with the thumbhole stock. When I fire an AR, I never extend the stock all of the way, but instead choose one of the intermediate positions. Many times I have heard about short LOP guns being good for use in the winter when one would be wearing a heavy coat - but I feel more comfortable with them even if it's warm and I'm just wearing a T-shirt on top. I am planning on buying a new Browning A-Bolt soon - and I'm starting to wonder if I might be better off with the "Micro" model. Comments?
