recoil problem in a trap shooting newbie
Allow me to first say that I did do a search, but didn't find anything relevant.
I've shot around 20 rounds of trap with the remington 870, and I never found the recoil a problem. I now have a stoeger condor o/u and the last time I went shooting trap and skeet, I banged up my right cheek so bad I had a purple spot on my face for the next week.
Both guns were 12 ga and I use target loads.
Is it bad technique? I'm wondering if it's because I'm not holding the gun correctly, or if it's something else I'm not aware of?
Any advice will be appreciated, and I will try it to my best knowledge. I'll also ask the friendly people hanging around the range for help next time I go.
