Ok, so for awhile now I have been thinking about getting a side by side shotgun. Quite a few times on here, along with at the gun shop, I have heard people comment on how stiff the recoil is. This kinda got me wondering what makes the recoil so much more stout than something like an 870. The breach stays closed on both while firing. I don't get it! Is it just a myth that a double barrel has more felt recoil then other shotgun types? ---This question is not about pulling both triggers at once!
