How to shoot the Fostech Ori­gin 12

Firepower - - BUYER'S GUIDE -

Whether you pre­fer iron sights, tele­scop­ics or a red-dot type op­tic, shoot­ing the Fostech Ori­gin 12 is not un­like shoot­ing a car­bine. We say this as many vet­eran shot­gun shoot­ers have de­vel­oped their tech­nique and han­dling over years of wing and clay shoot­ing. If you’re look­ing for an easy way to al­low your shot to col­lide with a mov­ing aerial tar­get, this is not the shot­gun for you.

In this case, you line up your sights as you would on a ri­fle and when you have your perfect sight pic­ture, you squeeze the trig­ger and let the lead fly.

We were dis­mis­sive of us­ing a red dot on a shot­gun un­til we out­fit­ted the Ori­gin 12 with the SIG Romeo. Round after round im­pacted ev­ery­thing we aimed at. You need to sim­ply think of the Ori­gin 12 more as a short-range car­bine for work­ing within 100 yards, and not a fowl­ing gun or long-range ri­fle.
