      Derringer- .45colt/.410 4" barrel

      It wasn't bad in 45, after about 4 rounds my hand ached.. But i only shot 2 .410's out of it in 3 years. However, talk about a pocket pistol- that was a Pocket Pistol.

      Rifle, well IDK, i shoot 45-70 out of an 20"NEF as my hunting rifle, but i figure that doesn't count.

      My Dad built himself a .62 caliber hawken flintlock and loaded it pretty hot sometimes. That would leave bruises, in no small part because of the plain brass buttplate.

      5 1/2" 45 Blackhawk with PMC 300gr. 45 "magnum" loads. Put on gloves after 3 rounds. Quit after 6! Felt a bad case of wrist "arthritis" coming on.

      I've felt those before. When you can do that with the old .45 colt, why ever did they invent the .44 magnum?

      For me, for the longest time, it was a 45/70 TC. I had shot several rounds and it was very memorable! Then, last summer, a relative from California came to town for awhile and we spent several days, shooting, metal detecting and so on. One of the guns he had brought with him was a Freedom Arms .454 Casull. Single handed, the first round I fired snapped the gun up and back so hard that I almost smacked myself in the head with it. I think it scared me more than it hurt me. The next round, two handed, send an electric shock of pain straight through the center of my palm, through the wrist and through my forearm. That really hurt!!! I didn't fire it again!

      I own a SBH in 44 mag that with the stock grips would bite a little but my hardest kicking firearm is my Winchester 1300 shotgun with 3" slugs. The hardest kicking firearm I've ever shot is a 378 Weatherby Mag rifle.

      Anyone see the pictures of the guy who blew his thumb off with the 460? Apparently he had his thumb next to the cylinder or something like that and when he fired the gun it blew his thumb off and even cotterized it, apparently.

      After shooting one, I believe it. I shot it kneeling taking a rest on the bench and it burned the bench a good bit, more than I expected.

      Hard kickers

      Y'all gonna think I'm a wimp. I might be. I enjoy .44 magnums very much. I have .45Cs I like, also .44Spls. The hardest kicker I ever shot was partially my own dumb fault. I bought a teeney little scandium S&W Centennial snubby. I picked up 90 grain solids and checked them in a M-10...it was like shhoting squibs. My problem is that I thought that because I had Ajax Pearlites on a .45C Vaquero that they were tough, so I bought a set for the leeeetle gun. The first round I fired shattered the grips and gashed my firing hand web so that the next round helped the blood flow a little bit better. I brought the gun home and detail stripped it for a "project". And I may never put the doggoned thing back together again.

      Hardest kicking gun I've ever shot? Argentine Mauser in 7.65. Maybe it was the steel butt plate that made it so hard? It bruised me on occassion.

      A friend of mine's Ruger Super redhawk .454 Casul, with hot 300gr bulleted loads.

      A close second on the unfun meter was a American Derringer Corp .45acp derringer(230gr FMJ)...even the manual said "do not exceed 6 rounds per day in practice, or nerve damage will result"...they wasnt kidding lol.

      My uncles S&W .44 mag, not sure what model, it was a while ago and I asked him if I could shoot it and he said yes but only if I shoot all six rounds, I didn't get past the first.

      When I was a teenager and we use to load our own brass my dad loaded some "hot" loads for his 44 mag. I had shot quite a bit with my 32-20 and was feeling frisky so I asked for his 44. I grabbed the wrong ammo and away I went. Two handed grip and it split my wig right at the hairline. I didn't know I was bleeding from the pain of my new headache. The sound was so different he came around to check on me and found me bloody. I still shy away from that gun.
      try this one though I think these people will disagree with all of us. It's funny as he^^

      I think the most miserable handgun I have shot was a ruger sp101 357 mag with 158 hot loads.flames and muzzle flip worse than any 44 mag I have shot.

      Don't have it anymore, but would be my old Contender in .45-70 with 500 grain Hornadys. But my old Freedom arms .454 with some home cast 400 grain bullets probably hurt the most as the hammer would come back and stick into the my hand behind the thumb. Still have the scars from that POS!
