More and more NRA Families are discovering that the shooting sports--especially clay games like trap, skeet and sporting clays--are extremely safe, look great on college applications, and teach good sportsmanship and teamwork. They're also lots of fun...if, that is, you know how to reduce the felt recoil of the 12- or 20-gauge shotgun your student uses to practice and compete. One way to "quiet the kick" is to install a high-quality, properly fitted aftermarket pad like the FalconStrike Junior Recoil Pad. Designed with the same high-tech recoil-reducing technology as FalconStrike's other recoil pads, this new enhancement will make shotgunning both more fun for the shooter, and more accurate on the range.

The FalconStrike recoil pad uses hydraulic dampening technology borrowed from the aerospace industry, and the company reports some very dramatic results. According to FalconStrike, that hydraulic technology, combined with an elastic bladder that contains a high-performance shock absorber, results in 80 percent less recoil energy. Additionally, the report 35 percent less muzzle lift, which will dramatically improve your young shooter's follow-through capabilities. All of that means that the young shooter will enjoy practicing longer, which generally translates to even better performance at competition time. 

“During the last decade, High School Clay Target Shooting has surged in numbers to nearly 800 schools and nearly 22,000 student athletes according to the NRA. FalconStrike wants to help junior shooters reduce the effects of recoil to help them enjoy shooting for longer periods of time," says Martin Gaudet, Founder and inventor of FalconStrike Hydraulic Multi-Fit Recoil Pad.

FalconStrike offers enhanced recoil energy reduction through hydraulic dampening, without the cost and expense of installing a muzzle brake or the limited results from a rubber-only pad. The company reports that it's simple to install: 1. Select your junior recoil pad, 2. Attach base plate and pad, and 3. Shoot with more comfort and endurance. The company offers a hundred-percent satisfaction guarantee. Falconstrikeusa.com
