Shockwave target

Recommended Posts

9 rounds of Aquila shorties from 8 yards. 4 rounds of #7 1/2 shot and 5 mixed 00 and #4 buckshot shells. This hip shootin will take some getting used to.

But I have a laser on the way.  ;)

Wouldn't want to be that target. How'd it cycle?

Yeah, hip shooting a stockless gun is a bitch.

How was the recoil? 

A lot less than I expected. Manly, but not punishing.

When playing with my toy - 11" barrels

I discovered something interesting. Aside from the "this don't hipshoot fer nothing". :lol:

 

I was using Challenger (Canadian) target loads - one ounce of 7 1/2s and the same of 9s - and S&B 00 buck.

 

The target loads kicked more. :o:blink:

 

I theorized that the Challengers were loaded with a faster powder than the S&Bs. That all of their powder burned in the eleven inches, so I got all the recoil, while the S&B wasted some of its recoil-inducing powder in a fireball.

The Shockwave is not a NFA weapon as per BATFE.
