Posted in thread: What handgun have you shot that kicked the worst? on 06-16-2012 at 06:09 PM
I don't consider the .44 Mag to be painful unless it's one of the dark alloy frame beasts from
the S&W custom shop but........ Years ago when I let my brother shoot my Ruger, after one shot
he gave it...

My SRH 454, 2.5" Alaskan was pretty stout with my homegrown 405gr Hard Cast hog loads. Off hand
was fine but the last time I shot it from a rest it damaged my wrist. I can't shoot it any more
so I sol...

I am definitely a hoarder. For guns that are strictly for hunting I keep about 50 or a 100
loaded up with supplies to reload plenty more if needed. For guns that have more application to
a SHTF scenar...

We all know what you meant but you might want to edit that Biohazurd. Parents may not
appreciate what you said about them. LOL (and then of course it leaves us wondering a little

After handling many many guns my wife fell in love with the 3" SP101. I don't mind full power
.357mag loads in it but she is much more comfortable with .38+P's in it. It can handle anything
you put in...

This doesn't really help Moonshine's problem but just another vote for the PX4/.40S&W. After a
couple thousand rounds never one hiccup of any sort. Your problem must be a true anomaly.

just noticed UTF, You and me are neighbors, just on opposite ends of the Buckman Bridge. You
don't happen to shoot at GRP do you?

I told you I was embarrassed............. Shortest answer is that I was rushing to test the
loads before sun got too low to get consistent readings on the chrono. I noticed the recoil was
"stout" but ...

I assume you mean "get another" spring and not "get another " gun. Right?
Posted in thread: Para 14.45 limited on 04-01-2012 at 02:03 AM
I have the very same gun and shoot it a lot. it's nearly indestructible and shoots everything
well. As a result of a reloading mishap that I'm embarrassed to discuss I can tell you that
mine handled 9...
