Hi, all -
I was reading the thread about the "kick" of a rifle, and it made me curious about ways to cope with it. I know that some of the gunmakers have special butt pads (I even saw one that looked like it was spring-mounted, but I can't find that link anymore), and I know that some hunting apparel included padded patches.
Is this stuff worth worrying about? I'm asking because I haven't shot in a long, long time, but I'm planning to get back into it pretty soon, and I'm wondering whether I should make the availability of a special butt pad part of the consideration when I buy a rifle.
Any input is welcome...thanks.
