Canting the gun mildly, on the other hand, isn’t ideal, but I’d put it way down on the list of flaws to correct. Unless you’re twisting the gun at a radical angle, a little cant is unlikely to put you off target. That said, it should be fixable, either by concentrating on it during your dry-fire practice or by fooling with gun fit. Not everyone’s shoulder pocket is shaped to accommodate a vertical gunstock. Sometimes changing to a recoil pad without a prominent toe, or grinding down the toe of an existing pad, helps the gun better fit your shoulder without digging into it. Personally, I don’t like shooting guns with sharp, protruding toes. Or you can add an adjustable buttplate that lets you angle the pad slightly outward at the bottom.
