There might be a little more recoil, but it handles wonderfully in tight situations like what you find kayak hunting on small bodies of water.

Q) What trends are you seeing this year in duck and goose guns?

Remington’s Versa-Max combines similar technologies to what is found in several Benelli models, to create what might be the best designed gun on the market.
