Kind of funny that when when I was complaining about the muzzle jump I experienced with the a300 I got called a wuss and told little girls could shoot it, no problem but now people are adding limbsaver pads or have the kick off system. I wasn't even complaining about felt recoil.
You certainly were not. And I don't recall anyone calling you a wuss for not liking its recoil, nor for not liking the muzzle jump your Outlander produced. What I do recall is that those responding saying they have not experienced a similar muzzle-jump phenomenon. (Many also offered multiple ideas for correcting the problem.) At least one member offered to buy your gun, to see what you were describing, and try to discover its cause.
BB is right, he was not complaining about the amount of recoil, rather about what he described as muzzle jump.
Now, A300's are not particularly soft-shooting shotguns. Nor, on the other hand, do they have a reputation as being particularly heavy recoilers; they are fairly average in that regard. But, even the softest-recoiling shotgun available (and every manufacturer claims to make that gun ) benefits from further recoil-reduction ....and Limbsavers do that quite effectively.
The A300 Outlander do not have a Kick-Off system available for it, by the way.
Bottom line: what we are discussing at this time is not what we were discussing then.
BB never fails to disappoint when it comes to interjecting his dislike for the A300 in as many threads as possible. I can hardly hold that against him, since I tend to do the same about TriStar Setter ST O/U........
