    Before I bought my own trap gun I tried some of the rentals at the range. I was particularly surprised by two different Browning single shot guns. One was obviously older and more worn than the other. The older one was a real pleasure to shoot and I shot 20 with it in the round I shot. The other gun was quite different. I shot 12 and my cheekbone hurt afterward. The gun I own has no perceptible recoil when I'm shooting targets. I suppose these differences have to do with stock design.

    Have you seen similar results?

    You have to find a gun that likes you, and when you do, buy it. HMB

    What you describe is known as "felt" or "perceived" recoil. Although it is a subjective judgment, how well the dimensions of the stock fit your particular size and shape, have a lot do to with what you experience (as do the gun mount, stance and body posture [shooting form] being used.)
