How to shoot the Fostech Origin 12
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.
