Barry- I surprisingly found that the PFS really helped my doubles shooting. The recoil reduction system keeps my head in place after the first shot. I have no problems with "recovery time'. I very highly recommend PFS.
I hope you are having a nice Fall down there, we are well into Spring. If you are having trouble contacting Vern (I do not know if he is still in Florida) you might call Bob Schultz (1-800-684-6329). Bob is a knowledgeable dealer for PFS and he advertises on this site (Target Shotguns). He understands PFS very well. Bob is a businessman ho you will enjoy dealing with. His word is as good as a written contract. I would never feel at risk sending Bob Schultz a blank check and asking him to ship me something he sells. Bob is also a top shooter.
