PS or even worse chasing sheep around a field like NJR
Just said it all ! Softly softly; trigger pressure through forefinger and thumb along thrust line.Hold, soft enough so that rifle can be removed from you without resistance(well not much ).
Mostly its guiding the recoil so it is linear.Don't want the little b...... to go into one. Doesn't take much and ready to go at a moments notice..
You love the little darlings really.
