Lowest FELT recoil would be a single action revolver, highest felt recoil would be a double action revolver. One of the most pleasant revolvers I ever fired was a Single action Ruger .44 Mag with 10 inch barrel. One of the most unpleasant was a S&W Model 15 double action revolver in .357 Mag.
The grip design of the single action allows the revolver to rotate up, which eliminates most of the felt recoil.
Gun Control is a MUST! If you cannot control your gun get one you CAN!
