I have shot the TC Contender in 45-70 and some little small carbines and never thought about it being hard on recoil. But I have been shooting guns since I was 16 yrs old and that includes 18 yrs on the Army Pistol team. I also have a 500 SW and it is no fun to shoot. I get about 5 rounds off, even with a glove, and that is all I want for the day. It took several trips to the range to get the monster sighted in. My son now, will shoot the damn thing until he runs me out of expensive ammo. I think he is just showing off for his Dad. LOL
