    Do you use the same setting on the recoil mechanism on your PFS for singles, handicap, and doubles? Does the stock movement between shots bother you? Is this movement something that I will get used to in time? How much travel do you have in your stock when the shot is fired?

    I use the same set up. The PFS moves about 1/4" more then enough for me.
    I still have a soft recoil yet firm enough for the second shot.

    I don't change mine and it is set fairly stiff. I don't notice anything when shooting doubles. VDT has a device that blocks the stock from collapsing when shooting doubles. Bill Malcolm

    Personally I don't change mine. You can very easily stiffen it up for doubles if you want.. Initially the movement bothered me on doubles but now I don't notice it.

    Thanks fellas for your responses. I have tried my PFS at 10 screw turns (original setting), 3 screw turns (3/16" travel), 15 turns (3/4" travel), and at 23 screw turns (1" travel).

    I think that I am leaning toward the 3 screw turns (3/16" travel) as the setting that is probably the best for me. I like the soft recoil when I have it set for 3/4" to 1" travel, but it feels like it is still moving back into position when I am ready to take the second shot on doubles. When it is set for 3/16" travel the recoil is somewhat sharper, but there is no feeling that the stock is still moving when I shoot the second target in doubles. I really prefer having one setup for my PFS for the 3 different events (singles, HC, doubles) and then I plan to leave it alone.
