Re: the skeet and trap shooting thread
I hear that alot. But the truth of the matter is recoil management is in how well the rifle or shotgun fits you. if its awkward to hold and sight down its not gonna feel good when it goes off.. even a .410 can get uncomfortable in that regard. I find if an O/U or SXS has just a smidge of cast off to the right and exactly 13.2" LOP turkey loads dont bother me. But gimme a 13.5 LOP and a stright comb and anything stouter than a 2 3/4 dram trap load hurts.
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
Fact of life:
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!
