That goes for ALL weapons fired in a show that PRIDES itself on graphic detail.
Obviously, they use blanks and most people don't know the difference...
Here's a video of a guy I've trained with, shooting a shotgun. Recoil control is a technique you can learn. Did his shotgun have this much recoil?
At home I have a video of the founder of TDSA standing on 1 leg while shooting an M240 from his shoulder with a belt of military ammo, showing similar recoil or less.
