I talk to him...he doesn't like the "new toy" hard to aim and hard to rack...he wants his "old school" shotgun , with a buttstock back , new one looks cool and tactical and such but is just too hard to shoot accurately .
I'm old guy ...I'll stick with old school !

Let me guess, he was shooting from the hip without actually using the sights, wasn't he?

There are techniques to aiming/shooting pistol grip shotguns accurately, as illustrated in this video...
