You must become one with the SG.

Or if that don't work shot it until your shoulder's black and blue. That won't make you less nervous, but ....

It'll be FUN

The Winchester Defenders work. Take it out and shoot it, a lot. We have 5 Winchester pump shotguns in the family that get shot. They have had bird shot, slugs and 3" Nitro Mags run through them. There have been zero issues.

Liken the rotating bolt face on your your Winchester to the similar rotating locking action on a bolt rifle (strength). You should feel safe and confident. The only nervous person should be the knucklehead badguy that makes you use it!

Don't let the SpeedPump make you nervous... Just be sure to have your fore-end hand pulling back toward you during aiming and firing. And as the others said... Practice makes perfect.

The Speed assist is probably the biggest feature that sets the winchester pumps apart from all the others.

I'll try to explain it as best I can, but I remember when it was being explained to me it took several tries.

IF you shoulder a mossy or remmy, pull the forend, and pull the trigger, you will have to release the pressure on the foreend so the bolt can unlock before you can chuck another shell in...the winny unlocks immediately after the trigger is pulled and so a little back pressure on the forend and it will slide right n back after you fire.....

it's the fastest, I've had one for 10 years, my dad has one from before I can remember. I have three of them, a defender(12g) and two rangers for hunting, one in 12g for wetland and one in 20g for upand. I usually take one of them over the 1100.

I love mine. It's officially my super trusty shotgun.
