The PAST Field Shield - Created with the field shooter in mind. The lightweight, patented foam recoil system is designed for quick and easy gun mounting in the field, and provides valuable protection from recoil. It is ambidextrous and attaches with an easily adjustable hook and loop closure for a secure fit. Front and back leather faces secures the gun comfortably in place, eliminating any sliding. The shield's 1/4" thick energy-absorbing pad provides excellent protection for all shotguns. The PAST product line is based on a patented foam material that dramatically reduces the felt recoil of rifles, shotguns, and handguns. This foam pad, worn over the shoulder, absorbs and spreads the recoil impulse, significantly reducing the recoil felt by the shooter. Other styles of recoil protection tend to bounce into your shoulder, which can create an unstable feeling while offering inadequate protection. The PAST recoil protection system allows a shooter to concentrate on hitting the target instead of fearing the punishment of recoil. Concentration helps to create good shooting habits, and more importantly, prevents developing bad ones.
