Tyler,
Looks like the best way for you to tame some of that recoil would be to hit the gym!

HA-HA-HA!
Just kidding with ya.

    You have to lean into big bores if you want to shoot one without taking a couple steps back...

    Tyler,
    I know what you mean, I had one of those NEF handy rifles in the short barrelled 10 gauge turkey guns. I've got quite a bit more meat on my bones then you and that sucker would take me a step back when standing and roll me on my back when sitting. It felt more like a shove then a kick.

    You should brace you shoulder against a tree or something, it'll put an end to that back pedaling!
