Do you have youth shooters that love to shoot, but hate the recoil? If you do, you will want to check out the ShockEater Shooting Shirts for Youth from Gamp Sports. These customizable shooting shirts are designed with a shooting pad pocket that holds a ShockEater Recoil Pad.
What’s that, You haven’t heard of ShockEater? It’s a fairly new company, which has developed a unique shooting pad that is only 1.4 ounces in weight, and a mere 8mm thick, while maintaining a 6 1/2 X 3 1/2 inch size. They have incorporated a proprietary Nano-Poly™ technology into the pads which reduces felt recoil without changing the length of pull or altering your appearance. These pads provide superior shock absorption, in a form that is lighter and thinner than any foam or gel can provide. The pads conform to you and your gun to provide “proper gun fit and improving pitch and toe angles at the butt-stock”¹ These pads can help with shooting recoil from the newest beginner, all the way to the most seasoned professional.
I played with a ball of ShockEater Nano-Poly technology, and it defied logic. Like the pads, with a sharp impact, like recoil, the molecules stiffen and lock together to form a solid state that maximizes the recoil absorption. After impact, these same molecules relax and return to a soft and conformable state, ready for the next shot, impact or recoil. Playing with this ball of Nano-Poly, it felt a good bit like play doh, but when the ball was struck on the table, it shattered because it was so stiff. I was then able to knead the ball back into a pliable state, over and over again!

If your youth shooter needs a larger size, there are both men’s and women’s sizes available also.All of the shirts are 6 ounce preshrunk, 100% cotton, unless you order the Safety Orange or Safety Green, then they come in the 50/50 cotton/polyester material. The breathable quilted pocket is sewn on the appropriate shoulder for your youth, and each shirt comes with a ShockEater Recoil Pad.
Sarah wore the ShockEater Youth Shooting Shirt on a recent day shooting clay pigeons. She does not like recoil, but even after several rounds of shooting, she was still ready for more! Sarah told me “The shooting shirt is comfortable, and did not hinder my range of movement. The recoil pad absorbed almost all of the recoil and made shooting a lot more enjoyable.” She now has ShockEater Recoil Pads in her Shooting Shirt and Miz Mac Shooting Vest.
