I recently fired a shotgun with the Soft Touch type butt stock recoil system. Had the single long thin center piece between butt plate and stock plate not the three rods. You could mount the shotgun and then pull back and the shotgun would pull back in towards the butt pad (measured one inch travel). I like to pull the gun in tight when I shoot. On a straightaway I pulled back a little just as I went to fire and the gun actually pulled back before it went off causing me to miss right. Surprised me when it moved just as I was about to shoot. Is this normal with this type of recoil system or did I put to much pressure on it. If that is the case I would have to hold the gun much more softly that I am used too.
