Handgun: .500 Smith & Wesson, 6 inch. Only did it once to say I did. I love recoil, but that was excessive. I'll stick with my .45 ACP instead.
Long gun: .50 BMG. Less recoil than I expected, but still enough to get your attention.
If I have to explain why I ride, you wouldn't understand. Explaining sex to an alien would be easier than explaining the feeling, one that boils all that is going on in your life down to what really matters each time you are in The Wind. All I can say is, Life is not Life without it.
