Pull - The length of a stock, as measured from the center of the trigger to the center of the butt, as in line G - E, including any recoil pad, buttplate or simply to the end of the wood if finished with a checkered butt. Pull measurements are not exactly comparable between double-trigger and a single-trigger guns. At Hallowell & Co., pull is measured from the front trigger of a double-trigger gun and from the only trigger of a single-trigger gun. The length of pull is about right for a shotgun when, with the gun comfortably mounted, there are about two finger-widths between the meat of your thumb and your cheekbone. Any less, and you might hit your face with your hand when the gun recoils. Any more, and you might catch the butt on your clothing when you hastily mount the gun.
