I braved up and shot my 20 guage shotgun today. It was a present from my hubby and my first time shooting it. I need to get used to it because I want to go turkey hunting with Josh. I thought the kick was going to be way worse than it was and actually had a lot of fun shooting it. A little bruised from it now, but I can't wait to shoot it again. I've shot Josh's 30-30 lots of times and it didn't feel too much different kickback wise.
