Ok, I just bought my first home defense gun: a mossberg 500 tactical persuader. I went to the range and shot about 5 slugs. My shoulder was a little sore after the first shot and now hurts to type... haha. Is this how it shoots with all shells? Or is this specific to the 2 3/4" 1oz slug? The thing that concerns me is that it's so unpleasant to shoot that I won't practice, which means poor aim and less gun familiarity. Shooting 9mm's with the old man is so much more fun.
Is there anything I can do to save my shoulder while I'm shooting?
