I had rotator cuff surgery last year May, I had a full tear. I started shooting this month with a 20 ga. S & S using the Evoshield shirt with their moulded pad. I'm impressed. The recoil while there, is spread over a larger area. Better than a Past.

Y'all sound like a wore out bunch of ol' men. laugh

Hope I live long enough to get there. wink

There must be lots of people who like the EvoShield, because they've been selling them at least since 2003, but I'm not one of them. I bought one to take to Argentina that year, thinking it would be good for high volume. I tried it the first day, and after a few minutes took the thing out of the shirt and never used it again. It just feels too unnatural to me to have something thick between the gun butt and me. If I ever get to where I need recoil reduction all the time due to shoulder issues I will fit GraCoils to my guns. I've shot one of them on my Perazzi for close to 15 years now, I guess. It looks like death eating a cracker, but does the job admirably, and with no unnatural feel like a pad in your shirt. The buttstock was given to me to replace the high, Monte Carlo one that was originally on the gun, and it had the GraCoil already on it. JMO,YMMV.

I agree 100% about the Gracoil unit. Even though my old Rem 1100 with a ported barrel, long forcing cone, and a Kickeze pad certainly recoils less than my Browning 525 clays gun, the Browning has a Graycoil unit on it, the second gun I have had with one. The Browning transmits more rearward thrust to my shoulder than my Rem 1100, but I still enjoy it better and shoot higher scores with it than with the 1100. It's a different feel to the recoil, but even with the arthritic inflammation in the rotator cuff and the bone spur in my shoulder, I shoot it better and have less discomfort than with the 1100, which everybody else says is much lighter recoiling to them. Have to agree with Stan on this one.

"I have rotator cuff and arthritic shoulder and just finished shooting my 125000 regestered target. A friend had me bend at the waist and let my right arm go staight down with a 10 pound weight. I then do 25 six inch circles right and left. Then I make 30 inch circles left and rightto a count of 25 . Within a week I was back shooting. A year later I still do the circles and it's not uncommon to shoot 200 target on a Saturday. NO pain.

bill"...

Low recoil only thing better than a Beretta 12 G A400 is a 20 G A400. The blue frame target model is heavier than the brown field guns. A400 will handle low recoil shells too. I load 3/4 oz 20’s keeping some 7/8 on hand for longer targets. The A400 will cycle either one.

Have not gone to the A400 20 yet, shooting 20 G barrels on my 12 687. Friend has the A400/20 let’s me shoot it and I want one.

My SXS 20s both light field guns cannot be considered low recoil even with RST shells. Gun weight 6 lbs 10oz recoil hard to overcome with clay adequate loads. Not a problem 50 round courses don’t want to shoot several 200 target days with them. Load some very low recoil 20s for my 11 year old Grandson, Break close Clays fine get past Skeet distances they run out for gas.

Top competition shooters aside, most clay shooters on average courses will shoot higher scores with a light recoil gun. Someone with chronic arthritis will defiantly shoot better low recoil.

Ed, here's a nice target revolver that I recommend to all of my anti-gun friends:



If we don't hear from you, we'll assume it worked out great!


A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.
