    For me , as far as a revolver goes, the hardest recoiling thing I have shot to date, would have to be a 4" Smith Model 29 that belonged to my uncle, we had been shooting some very mild 240 grain LSWC's, when all of a sudden, he thought it would be funny to sneak in a 240 Grain Super Vel "Exploder" Hollow Point, I was only about 13 at the time and the gun damn near jumped out of my hand. As for a long gun, I would have to agree with a previous poster, that a 12 Gauge Winchester 1300 with 3" magnum Deer Slugs is pretty brutal.

    Taurus Judge 45 L/C .410 Short barrel. My brothers conceal carry gun. Kicks like a mule. I would also add the first time I shot my Mosin Nagant. I figured the recoil would be like a 30-06 NO not this Russian beast. Kicked backed and almost took my shoulder off.

    Enjoy shooting my 29, but if I start shooting it too fast it will make me take a step backwards! I consider that just part of the fun. Gettin old and 44 is my stopping point! It was awhile back that one of the club members had bought a new PPK/s. Must say I wanted one since the very first "Bond" movie. I was delighted when he asked if I wanted to shoot it. Given that it is a "blowback" design that little gun recoils more than it should! Shooting it was not a pleasent experence. It was not a gun you would shoot as a "range toy". After 3-4 rounds I thanked him for allowing me to shoot it and gave it back. He offered the rest of the rounds in the mag, I respectfuly declined!!!

    ??? they all kick some or more... 44 mag revolver, 458 mag, .500 nitro, accidental both 12 ga. barrels at once,... The're supposed to kick aren't they? They don't really stand out so much to me. A 100 round burst from my old 20mm Vulcan rocked the boat some I guess. Getting kicked on the chin by a horse hurt some.

    well it was a rifle not a pistol but it was a bolt action 7mm.
    My dad shot a 50 bmg. I would not shoot that. Too much fun. It had so much muzzle blast it blew his wife's hair back. It was awesome!

    When I was eight I shot a 30-6. Bad gun for an eight year old(I think it was my second time shooting).

    My buddy's S&W .44 Mag. Kicks more than my .50 Desert Eagle. We took it to the range and fired his hand-loads. It was like a pumpkin came out of the end of the barrel. I love shooting at the range where everyone stops and looks, like in the movie Robocop lol

    Had the experience of shooting a friends Alaskan .454 casull...........I am not recoil sensitive, but that's a bit much....even he will only shoot 2 or three times, enough to get it dirty, then that's it.

    I would have to say my .454 casull as well!! Mine has a 6" barrel and it kicks like a mule! I could not imagine shooting the casull with the short barrel, must be quite the experience!!

    My first revolver: S&W m&p340 (with crimson trace)

    Bought it for personal protection with a reason.

    Bruised my hands every time I went to range with it and did not make for fun when practicing but then I didn't buy this for fun.

    Sold it once I felt it was no longer necessary to have it and moved on to other guns, But I will never forget how that felt...ever.

    My hardest kicker was my Ruger LCR shooting hot magnum loads. This was a real hand whacker.

    Ruger .454 Casull, wow!!!! traded it off for S&W .460, shoots 3 different loads and the compensator and weight make a big difference in recoil. Much better.

    May actually been the 44mag 2-3/4inch Titanium Taurus revolver. With full house 44mags, very nasty. Seems like when I weighed it unloaded on the scales and it was 22 or 23 oz. About like shooting the S&W 500 that came in the Survival Kit with the short snubby barrel without the ports, At least the 500 had a chunk of weight behind it but quite a punch itself.

    Technically speaking the m2HB, but barring that I'm going to say the Taurus Raging Bull. 454 casull, thing made the .50 cal desert eagle seem small and insignificant in comparison.

    There's a lot of mean kicking handguns around. Those little ridiculously lightweight 357s are terrible. The old Freedom Arms 454 Casull is wicked.
    Light weight 44 Mags loose their appeal too.
    I've got a 460 S&W Mag in an X frame that's sure no pussy cat, but the design and weight help tame it down.
    Those big bore guns are fun to shoot, but my biggest problem is they're all expensive to buy and expensive to shoot even if you reload.

    C4 Missile from an OHIO class submarine. 18k ton ship shook. Smooth squeeze of the trigger not needed.

    I fired a friends titanium S&W .357 with full house 125 gr. Magnum rounds. I made it through a cylinder...that was enough. Interesting side note; shortly after this range session my friend quietly sold this gun and bought a steel one.

    My S&W Model 29. Don't need any more whack than a 44 mag.

    I used to do a lot of reloading for .357 and .44 Magnum since I hunted with both of those calibers. When I migrated to the .44, it was in a New Model Ruger Super Blackhawk. The nice thing about those single action revolvers was the grip design allowed the gun to roll up in your hand. This dissipated a good deal of the felt recoil. My pet load at the time was a Sierra 240 gr JHC (Jacketed Hollow Cavity) over 23 grains of Hercules 2400. This was good for somewhere around 1500 fps.

    In either '83 or '84 (don't recall which year) I traded that gun for a Ruger Redhawk 7 1/2" barrel. With its stock grips and the above mentioned load, the felt recoil was quite a bit more than the Super Blackhawk. I soon traded that Redhawk for the 5 1/2" version, which I still have, because the balance was far better for me. And I installed Pachmayr grips. Changed the bullet to a 225 grain Speer 3/4 JHP still over 23 grains of 2400. Very accurate and hot at close to 1600 fps. Recoil is quite manageable.

    Yes sir! There's nothing quite like a US Navy Man 'o War putting steel on target. It literally rocks your world!

    One or two.

    Most recoil?

    In a handgun, the runner up would be a two-shot derringer (can't remember the maker now; this was around 1980 or so) in .45 ACP. As Mr. Wright said about the derringer in .45 Colt, it hurt to shoot.

    The most recoil was a two shot (over and under) Lancaster 'howdah' pistol. When hunting tigers, the tiger would sometimes jump into the howdah (the passenger compartment on top of an elephant in the old British movies in India) with the hunters and a rifle would be useless in the circumstances. The pistol is chambered for .577 Snyder and looks like a two barrel Mossberg Brownie (or two barrel C.O.P.) pistol.

    The recoil rocked me back on my rear leg, jerked my fool head out from underneath my hat and ripped out a seam on the shoulder of the shirt I was wearing. Having a tiger surprise one and come for lunch would be about the only way I would shoot that thing again. I don't think alcohol would be an encouragement.

    For the record, I've never shot a .45-70 handgun of any sort. Nor can I see any profit in so doing.

    I must say, some rather ordinary guns can be painful. Shooting a S&W 1950 Target model revolver (.45 ACP/.45 AR) with hardball and factory grips really pounds on the web and palm of my hand. (Especially when shooting one handed trying to make some points on a bullseye target.)
