Tactical Tip of the Day: Using Recoil to Your Advantage With a Pump Shotgun

Here is how you can actually use recoil to your advantage with a pump shotgun to get rounds downrange quickly.

Jeremy Stafford, a highly experienced combat vet and police weapons instructor, uses his Mossberg pump to demo how you can use recoil to your advantage.

It really is amazing that using the natural recoil of the gun to your advantage to work the pump cycle and get back on the threat is so effective. Being able to manipulate your pump shotgun, and get back on target, will give you an advantage in high-risk tactical situations where every second counts.

Pump shotguns remain a gun of choice of military and police for door breaching and kinetic operations as they are simple to use and rarely have stoppages. For the armed citizen pump guns come at an attractive price and are perfect for camp and home protection tasks.

If you own a pump shotgun get out to the range and practice using the recoil to your advantage to give you the edge.
