    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!

    I was at a range a short while back and got to shoot a 500 smith. Now I've shot one a while before and it was pretty impressive but not so bad that it hurt or anything. THis guy had one of those Alaskan...whatever models..Really short barrel. Unknown to me was the guy was hand loading and had some ..I don't know..nuklear powered super kill em all round. Well,,That's how I felt after shooting it. I've shot many a big bore and with some powerful loads but that thing I thought was going to take my head off with the recoil. No - I didn't take a second shot...i kid of wanted to but Thought that now that I knew what was coming I'd probably flinch real bad and not get within 5 miles of the target..heh

    Many years ago, I had both barrels on my Ruger Red Label O/U 12 gauge go off at one time. My shoulder still hurts when I think about that one.

    3" magnum 12 ga slugs (1.25 oz as I remember)... suck.

    Even WITH a 1" recoil pad.

    They say the automatics are better, but I shot a few out of a 870 pump gun. MY 30-year old 870 pump. I was checking it for cracks after I checked my own teeth for chips...

    Smith and Wesson .44 magnum, 8 3/8 barrel. I thought the recoil wouldn't be too bad, but with wooden grips and 240 grain ammo it was rough.

    Well for me it would be my buddy's Ruger Super BlackHawk 7.5in 44Mag and he loads his own and he loaded some so hot it was just unreal.
    As for a shotgun it would have to be the old 10ga double barrel that Dad had got from a friend back in the late 70's and Roger had loaded some home loaded 3in mag loads and lucky me(I would shoot anything back then) I got to shoot the first 2 rounds and found myself 10 feet from the firing line and flat on my back.I shot both rounds at the same time.

    Would have to say.. a friends .454 casull Ruger. If the shot didn't kill the grizzly charging on me, the muzzle blast would certainly stun the poor thing. dadgum hand-cannon! I'd probably stick with .45 long colts in that thing, except when standing in a Montana trout stream flipping flies waiting on a big furry growly bear to sneak up on me.. Which is pretty much why my friend owns that particular wheel gun.

    The hardest one that I've ever shot is this one with full house 44 mag hunting loads.

    Dirty Harry S&W Model 29. Not only were they magnum loads, but my girlfriend's father did his own handloading and put a little extra in there for some extra kick. I guess I about 19 or 20 at the time. I had the gun resting on a sandbag and I actually hit around the 7-8 ring. The gun shot up so my arms were nearly perpendicular to where they started. I definitely treated the man's daughter with a little more respect after having shot that gun...

    I wish I could do that work, but no Mag-na-port did all the work to it. It is a handful with full blown 44 mags.

    The hardest I've been kicked by a handgun was from a Ruger Blackhawk .45 Colt. Load was a 250gr JHP over AA #9.

    By a rifle, a Marlin lever action 45-70 loaded with 405gr bullet. Ouch!
