Was looking at this article and how it was talking about the difficulties of doing it with a pump




I've seen Paul Harrell do it in his videos, but can anyone recommend a decent training video on it (ie: handling recoil management etc)? Can't find any on youtube other than some folks doing it for kicks.

the issue with prone shooting is that the body is stuck to the ground, and it cant move with recoil.


buttpads help, or a recoil reducer like this one.

which is why I absolutely hate sighting in my Mossberg 500 that, with a rifled barrel, scope and youth stock I use as my deer gun, is painful to shoot from a bench rest.   (I have gotten by with a laser bore light in a simulated shell casing.)
