What Did You Do When You First Felt a Gun Recoil?

Recoil Frightens Girl

Remember the recoil the first time you shot a shotgun?

While still in her pajamas, this girl tries to shoot this shotgun and she felt it.

The recoil frightens this girl pretty badly. You can see her reaction here:

By watching closely you can see she does not have the shotgun braced well enough. Neither does she put her weight behind the gun. Because of this it kicks her back a step.

My first experience with a shotgun left me with a few bruises and a bit tender as well. It took a little while before I held my shotgun properly. Who showed you how to shoot your first shotgun? Did they laugh at you as can be heard in this video?

A painful experience like this can be funny to see, but may leave a young shooter reluctant to try again. Maybe someone should have offered a little more guidance. I hope she works up the courage to shoot the gun again.
