As any moderately good marksmanship instructor will gladly inform you, anticipating recoil this way is a sure way to shoot like ****. The idea that a shotgun is simpler to operate than a fighting rifle or carbine is, to put it simply, wrong. Anyone who argues otherwise either A) does not know how to run a fighting rifle properly, or B) has not actually thought about what they’re preaching in a rational manner.
