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..........
