      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!

      Till, I bought the S & W 500 Magnum.
      I'm glad I'm not the only one familiar with that lovely Rossi coach gun. My dad had one when I was in high school, and that thing kicked like a mule, especially with full power 3in loads. It's lightweight, with a 20in barrel. That being said, I still want it. My brother wound up with it, and I keep threatening to steal it. I just love the double barrels with exposed hammers.

      Pistol: As others have mentioned, the Mountain Gun .44. I had a Ruger Redhawk .44 with the 7.5in barrel, and thought I could handle that one. It's amazing what a difference the shorter barrel made.

      Rifle: It's tough to call. The Mosin packs a punch, but I have to admit that my dad's Remington 700 in 7MM mag had a kick. My brother's 300 Win Mag wasn't pleasant, either.

      444 marlin in a TC pistol frame. Had a buddy offer to let me try his american arms derringer in 45-70. After seeing another buddy shoot it and get a big cut in the web of his hand from the hammer spur rolling back on him I declined.

      Canon de 75mm Modele 1912.. I was standing a little too close when I pulled the lanyard to fire it, and I got some felt recoil. Second was my Marlin lever action in 45-70,but that wasn't even close to the cannon.

      The worst recoil I felt was from my american derringer chambered in .44 mag. I have the desert eagle in .44 with the 14 in. barrel, it's the largest .44 made, so I bought the derringer to have the smallest .44 made. Boy, talk about a flame thrower!!! I ordered their full sized grips to help tame the gun down; they lasted about 8 rounds, the recoil chewed them right off. I put the reg. grips back on. I bought a base ball batters glove and sewed a thick piece of leather in the palm, it's tolerable now. I shoot it at the end of a session at the range, once you shoot it, your no good to hit anything more. What fun.
