    It was my first time ever shooting my brand new Remington 870 12 gauge, and it was also my first time ever shooting a shotgun... god damn I didn't realize how much 12 gauge shottys kick, each shot felt like someone punching me in the shoulder as hard as they could, my shoulder is sore as hell now.

    But damn it was fun :bigthumb:

    Definately what ammo? Also have you had any training? If you don't hold it right you'll get beat up alot easier.

    Nope, I haven't had any shotgun training, this was my first time ever shooting one.

    You have to hold that shit tight to your shoulder and lean into it. If it's loose, it'll slap back into your shoulder and hurt alot more.

    We must be noticing different recoil characteristics then.. to me, shooting an M1 is cake, all day. 2 3/4 slugs out of my Mossy is an exercise in willpower.

    Granted its mostly that shitty ass ATI stock :o

    I put well over 100 game loads through an 835 today and I can't even tell I shot anything, you're more than likely doing something wrong :o
