first time out with my new shotgun, and all i can say is...... OUCH! fired 75 bird shot rounds, 35 buck shot, and 15 slugs. My shoulder feels like jello now. But it was FUN lol. kind surprised at the spread though? I was at about 7 yds and it was about 3" diameter with the buck shot. bird shot cover the whole 10" target. is that about right? BTW smoke rolling out the barrel after 8 quick buck shots was kinda cool to lol

Yep, bird shot spreads a lot. Buckshot sounds good too. That's why for home defense 00 buck is pretty popular. Its spreads enough for u not to be a sniper but tight enough to make a huge impact of multiple (close to 9mm sized) pellets in on your target. Slugs hit hard! I have low recoil for the range and before my new stock id put 100 shells through and be pretty jello like for a day or so.

For comparison, the round count for my upcoming advanced shotgun course is:

Ammunition Requirements:
750 rounds of birdshot
250 rounds of buckshot
300 slugs
250 rounds of handgun

This is shot over a 4 day course. :D Hang in there, you'll get use to it.
