Recoil control is an important part of shooting. Properly taming recoil helps shooters improve accuracy and safety.
 
1. SELECTING THE RIGHT SHOOTING STANCE
You may be in various shooting stances or postures for the best shot depending on the type of shooting you're doing. This implies that you could be lying on the ground, kneeling, or standing. The first important step in effective recoil management is choosing the appropriate firing stance.
 
2. THE GRIP
Make sure the rifle or shotgun is securely tucked into your shoulder pocket if you're shooting one of those firearms. Then you should also have a firm grip on the gun's far end. Of course, none of these factors will matter if the gun is too long or too short for you to grip easily. As a result, if holding the pistol is uncomfortable, managing the recoil will also be difficult.
 
3. TENSE UP YOUR WRISTS
Your wrists are the next place that recoil passes after passing through your hands. You shouldn't lock your wrists when shooting because they are designed to move, but you also don't want them to be too slack either. Just add some tension to them instead.
 
4. LOCK YOUR ELBOWS
Locking your elbows does not mean locking your arms straight out. You shouldn't do that at all, in fact. Instead, arrange your elbows in a relaxed, slightly bent position. Your elbow joints will be better able to absorb and lessen the recoil as a result than if they were in a stiff, straight line.
 
5. USE A MUZZLE BRAKE
Muzzle brakes are specially made to assist in controlling recoil. They screw onto the muzzle end of your barrel and change the direction of the gases that escape when you fire the gun. You may adjust the recoil by altering the movement of the gun by adjusting the direction of the gases.
