When you “mount the shotgun” you place it to your shoulder. To do this, first place the stock against your cheek, then put it against your shoulder. This ensures that the firearm is in exactly the same position each time you shoot. Do not raise the firearm to the shoulder first and then drop your head to rest your cheek against the stock. You will likely miss the target.
