Of the three main types of small arms available to us – a pistol, a shotgun and a rifle – the shotgun most of all depends on the contact between the shooter and the weapon. It often happens that even without the use of sights, the shooter controls the shotgun so well that it can simply track the target with a glance and be sure that the weapon will follow it. And the detail that plays the most important role in creating such a bond is gun butt.
There are many options for guns for shotguns, ranging from elongated English models, and ending with simple pistol grip, in which the shoulder rest is not provided at all. And the attentive owner of a shotgun should take all this into account when he chooses a hunting rifle or looks after a weapon for self-defense.
