    Hardest most violent recoil...

    This is the hardest recoiling hand gun I have ever shot. Never never never shoot this from the bench with your elbow touching the table, when 150 grain or heavier magnums are loaded in the cylinder... haha I made that mistake once!
    Hogue bantam grips on smith and wesson model 60-9 357 mag snub. Current fun load pictured in the still frames is 155 grain keith deep hollow point with 15.5 grains ww296. They sure leave in a hurry! Feels about the same as the American Eagle 158 grain magnum loading, except for cooler looking bullets haha.
    Interesting fact about how the sights are regulated: 148 grain button nose wad cutter loaded with 3 grains ww231in 38 special brass hits to the same spot (point of aim = point of impact is the same at 25 yards!!!)as 110-125 grain jhp 20 grains ww296 in 357 mag brass.

    What's the snappiest gun you enjoy to shoot?

    That steel boat anchor? Try a 360. 11.4 ounces of scandium and titanium. Hold on tight!





    I suspect someone will be along with a scandium .44 mag shortly.

    My old boss used to like to collect handguns rather than shoot them. The 500 S&W and the 460 come back at you pretty good.

    had the opportunity to shoot a 6" 454 casull. One cylinder full was plenty, but fun!!

    I meant a member posting something along the lines of "That little mouse gun? You should try a 329…”

    I tried one of the then New Scandium J-Frame in .357mag when they came out in 1996.

    Stupid enough to fire 2 rounds. I prefer the Casull in .454 with the Pretty Rosewood grips.
    I HATE auto-correct


    Happiness is a Warm GUN & more ammo to shoot in it.

    My Experience and My Opinion, are just that, Mine.

    I have to wear shooting gloves with this one, otherwise it'll likely bite you. 45-70 revolver, which arguably a snub nose with a 6 inch barrel. It knocks off the dirt and dust on the sunroof at the gun range when you fire it. I did not like the S&W snubnose 44 magnum with the Scandium frame though. I do have a Ruger Super Redhawk snubbie in 44 mag though. It is a handful too.

    Probably the worst for shooting 44 magnums is the not so common Pietta 1873 SAA revolver clone in 44 mag. It really needs better grips as the standard grips are horrid when firing 44 mags. Defintely wear shooting gloves. It is best to stick with 44 Specials in it though.

    My 642 was annoyingly snappy enough that I sold it.

    A work associate rode with me one day and noticed a box of 458 Win Mag ammo on the truck seat. He started telling me about how much he knows about guns, because his family are all deer hunters. He picked up the box while talking, removed one of the cigar-sized cartridges, and asked "is this a pistol bullet or a rifle bullet?"

    A 458 Win Mag handgun would be a handful.

    Dog Bites

    For how good it felt in the hand, the Charter Arms Bulldog in .44 Special with its stock walnut grips was surprisingly unpleasant to shoot. I enjoyed .44 Specials out of my S&W Model 29. Out of the Bulldog they felt like catching a hardball bare handed. It’s aluminum frame gave it an unloaded 23 oz. weight which may partially account for the punishing recoil.

    My Mom was 65 or so when she shot it the first time. My Dad had passed and my brother and I were plinking in the backyard while inventorying his guns for sale. We handed her the Bulldog with appropriate cautions and She shocked us both by picking it up and blaming off five quick shots! It may have been the first time she fired a pistol!

    Try shoot an Encore 45/70 15 inch handgun with the standard tapered barrel, no brake, shooting a 550 grain cast bullet at 1500 fps. Maybe a 50 Alaskan Encore handgun with a 700 grain at 1400 fps or an Encore handgun in 458 Win Mag with a 500 grain at 1900. All these loads were chronographed not guessed. Maybe a BFR in 45/70 with a 515 grain at 1440 chronographed.
    We Know Mass Cannot Be Weighed But It Has Newtonian Weight And That Is Derived From Kilograms And Kilograms Can Be Converted to Pounds. But, Still Mass Cannot Be Weighed. But How is the kilograms obtained? Can Kilograms Be Weighed? Evidentally Yes It Can. But, Still Mass Cannot Be Weighed So Kilograms Must Not Exist. Funny Isn't It.
    One good thing out of this the next time I'm at the doctors and they want to weigh me I'll tell them mass cannot be weighed.

    well, ranking way up there at the top of the list for hard recoiling guns are the 45-70 Derringers. There were two or three companies that made them over the years too. Bond Arms and American Derringer made them, and I think one other too.
    Here is one example: yes it does hurt to fire one. How this guy even handles it forthat many shots in one day is amazing.
