My dad's Winchester fits me the best.  I'd recommend Winchester for anyone that it short like me, and doesn't like those guns that kick very much. 


I mean, I have shot at a target with it, and I had a wonderful group of shots.  They were close to the bulleye also. 


If you've got a gun that fits you very well, then you will have a good group like I did.  My dad has always told me...."The tighter your group is, the better the group is."


I don't what he means, so can someone let me know that while you are telling me what gun fits you best?

Group is a measure of deviation, the less deviation the better (smaller) the group.  It works as the sum of various factors working together or contributing error(s). The smaller group is a sign of harmonious actions.  So if your gun fits you well, then you have reduced the negative influnce of one of the contributing factors.  Other factors would include interior and exterior ballisistics, mechanical fits, and human error.


To answer your second question: My Browning Hi-power and Ruger 77/22

Dear  Dorothy:


Sounds like your Dad is a good guy and a fine shooter.


You can measure your group size with a ruler.  The group size is the distance between the two shots in the group that are furthest away from each other.  You can measure this from the centers of these two shots. (There are other ways to do this, but this will work fine.)  The smaller your group (i.e., the closer your shots are to each other), the better YOU are shooting.  You then adjust your sights or scope until you are shooting your groups right where you want the bullet to hit.  This means you will hit what you are aiming at.


Gun fit is VERY important.  It affects how well you shoot and how hard the gun kicks you.  Be sure to try your rifle with your hunting clothes on.  I am average size, but still have to  take 1/4 inch off my rifle and shotgun stocks so that they fit me right in winter hunting clothes.  I put Pachmayr decelerator recoil pads on all of my shotguns and big game rifles.  Shooting should be fun, and it shouldn't hurt.  I like Remingtons and Rugers, but Winchester makes some great guns.


Be sure to wear ear plugs AND shooting muffs to protect your hearing, and shooting glasses to protect your eyes.
