    it most certainly is .... the bottom line is, you can't eliminate recoil .... however, you can change felt recoil .... the series of mods we have found to do a good job of reducing felt recoil work as a package .... each mod contributes and the sum total of their efforts is truly impressive

    that's great!!

    we sure hope to .... last year it rained all day that we had scheduled to go to the range ... the river came up and we were very lucky go get out of the campground .... not that we are concerned about that happening again this year but we have changed campgrounds ..

    earlier today I took our recently Mag-na-ported 12 ga. Remington 11-87 to a sporting clays course and put it through its paces .... as already noted, being on blood thinning medication, reducing felt recoil has taken on a much higher priority for me .... most happy to report that 50 rounds later, no shoulder bruising ..

    this coming Wednesday, on our way back home to NC from SD, I have a scheduled to meet 3 friends to spend the day shooting at Jay Henges State Park near St Louis .... weather permitting, I plan to fire a minimum of 100 rounds on their trap ranges (I really hope to fire 200) .... in addition, I hope to fire 50-100 cowboy action level rounds through our Mag-na-ported 45-70 .... last year rain prevented us from shooting while we were there, thankfully no rain in the forecast this year but they are calling for 90+ degrees

    the first firearm I ever had Mag-na-ported was our Ruger Redhawk 44 Mag .... shortly thereafter we sent them our Remington 700 BDL chambered in 300 WBY Mag and our Remington 700 all weather 30-06 .....without doubt (prior to upgrading its OEM recoil pad, adding a Mercury Recoil Suppressor, and having it Mag-na-ported) the 300 WBY had the harshest recoil of any rifle I've ever fired .... it was brutal .... so much so that it took multiple sessions to sight in the scope .... our next candidate for recoil reduction is our early edition Ruger Red Label 12 ga .... its recoil is such that it simply isn't fun to shoot

    Outstanding!!

    That 45/70 did kick a bit with full power loads. The bruise is all healed up and I look forward to testing the mod.

    Mag-na-porting our 45-70 is our last planned modification .... the insertion of a Mercury Recoil Suppressor in the stock cannot be seen and upgrading the recoil pad isn't readily .... the Mag-na-ported barrel can be seen below .... with us traveling I don't know when I'll get a chance to run some rounds through it but I'm sure looking forward to doing so .... over the years we have used this same combo of mods to several hard kicking rifles/shotguns and the results have been dramatic .... I don't see any reason that it won't really help this time as well

    I called them three or so months ago and made an appointment for Larry (closurdo) and me to come by and I'd be bringing shotguns, rifles and possibly some handguns to have them ported .... unfortunately, Larry passed away about 6 weeks ago .... we still wanted to come and visit with his widow on our way out west (realistically, we may never be back in Michigan) .... a couple of weeks ago to confirm and let them know exactly what I was bringing .... they asked be to be there when they opened at 9AM .... I was there, they were ready .... after chatting a while and looking around the waiting room I picked up Maureen and we went to visit Debbie .... they told me it should take them about 4 hours to port 3 11-87 barrels, one semi auto hand gun and two rifles and they would call me .... just over 4 hours later they called .... I was welcome to wait in the waiting room but wanted to spend as much time with Debbie as possible
