    Ah yes the T-Rex, kills at one end and maims at the other.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    Uncertain where you're at, specifically, but it's highly likely you've got a suitable shotgun range nearby: List of AZ shooting ranges, AZ Public Shooting Ranges or AZ Fish & Game list of Shooting Ranges.

    Plus, shooting on BLM/public lands might be an option. Check AZ BLM web site: click. Find a spot with a good backstop hill, fire away, clean up before leaving. Makes for a very nice afternoon, without all the range-type restrictions, risky shooters, etc. If uncertain where local spots might be, I'm sure some of the old timers at your range would know of a couple decent nearby locations suitable for shooting on public lands.

    I know there's a couple BLM/public areas that I can shoot at around here. I just haven't had anyone show me where they were at yet. It's a lot easier to get birdshot or target shells and probably cheaper as well, so that's definitely an option I'm going to look into.

    It sounds like shooting a shotgun is much like shooting a .50 cal BMG. Snug it up tight, get a firm seat, then just go with the push. (of course, I'm standing with the shotgun, but the same idea applies).

Alright, that's fine, I can always pad the end - not to mention, I only have 15 rounds of those, then I'll move to my low-velocity buckshot from PMC. Yeah, that's a dream. It kicked harder than the Winchester ammo. I WASN'T expecting that. Lower Velocity means lower powder, means less kick, right? Yeah, guess again.

    PMC Low Velocity 00 Buck = a sore shoulder (haven't shot a shotgun in 20 years). Funny thing, I also fired the Stevens 320, and really enjoyed it. It actually had less kick (heavier gun). I think I'm going to buy a pistol grip/stock for the Mossberg. Really is a little easier to handle and I think holding on to the pistol grip lessens the recoil a bit.
    I have a Maverick 88 and that put a Limbsaver on it. The original recoil was piece of very hard black rubber. It made quite a big difference shooting full power 2 3/4" 00 buckshot with the Limbsaver. Later on I put a Houge over molded 12" LOP buttstock on instead.
