Response to recoil

I get stuck on recoil, thinking its _always_ a linear force. Forgetting that when you "pin" one end of the movng device, the energy still wants to go somewhere, and your shoulder makes a nice pivot point

 

(for what its worth,,, whats the difference between a "pivot point" and a fulcrum? or is a pivot point just a kind of fulcrum?)
