Saundra Brown, the first black woman on the
Oakland police force, gets instructions on how to shoot a shotgun, 1970.
This picture might look like a marketing material based on the way she’s holding the gun, but that’s a common shotgun technique. In the 70’s this was considered the proper way to shoot a shotgun at close range. As we can see on the picture, the stock goes much further back than this would make it appear, it’s not inside the crook of her arm, she’s using her elbow to press the side of the stock into the side of her hip. If the butt of the stock rests on the hip, it would cause bruises and make a proper grip difficult. She is using her stance and weight to stop from being pushed back, and locking the wrists in line with her forearms to control recoil and prevent injury. The front thumb is used to aim, where it points, the gun shoots. This technique is usually used to rapidly aim in and engage close quarters
