This reaction is effectively what a friend of mine had, after the first (and only) time I had her try a 20 gauge. Some people can handle the recoil – some cannot. Find the weapon that works right for you.
All of that said, I do like to disabuse people of the myth that “you cannot miss with a shotgun.” This is patently bullshit. I refer to an earlier blog post of mine from years ago, where I showed, outright, that you can miss with buckshot. I loved that shotgun, indeed – a Winchester 1300 in 20 ga, and I owned it for a couple years before selling it to a friend who needed a good firearm. Mostly because I needed the money to get a Mossberg 12 ga.
I will be using real pics, albeit artistically modified, whenever I can in this comic. Panel #1 in this is the first time I helped a friend try out my .40 cal. Panel #2 is from the first time I took the Winchester 1300 to the range.
Remember, kids, it’s not the Fed Gov that will infringe on your 2nd Amendment rights – it’s local government.
More October Pumpkin fun!
