Interesting. This sounds exactly like the issue that some recoil only operated guns like the Benelli experience on occasion. I've never heard of a gas gun having this issue or "requiring" a solid shoulder or particular stance. Now, low base, practice type shells, those I've seen cause issues with both gas and recoil guns..........
O, that a man might know the end of this day's business ere it come!
But it sufficeth that the day will end and then the end is known.
And if we do meet again, why, we shall smile;
And if not, why then, this parting was well made.
