Just one Head Gasket

Just like the title says I am considering running one head gasket(steel shim) which would raise the compresion, I know it's been done before just curious as to what some of your experiences with this has been, I have heard good and bad but just thought I would post this to see what the responses would be. :rolleyes:
Stock head gaskets are hard to beat,depending on your head type.Also heard metal gaskets prone to leak,esp fluid if used say on a daily basis.Im no expert on this but stockers do hold up well if car is tuned right.
