Huh? Bro, I read your post 3 times, and still not sure what you mean. If the question is: "Can a heavier person control recoil easier than a skinny person?", well, to SOME extent, yes- action vs reaction. However, check the young PFC that took an Olympic Gold Medal this year in skeet- He is definitely not a football linebacker! Back in '82 I met a female 1Lt that was a member of the President's 100- and she shot the M-14. Think she weighed about 110. Part of the equation is mass, part is strength, part is training, and LOT is practice.

A gun larger than 30mm would be considered a Destructive Device under the National Firearms Act. Anything larger than .50 cal (Shotguns exempt) is severely restricted.

For military purposes 40mm grenade launchers are common place (M-203) and not difficult to shoot.

Generally, anything larger than .50 cal is considered a cannon.

seriously! This was either written by a person who speaks English as a second language, or who is simply not well-educated. I THINK he's asking what you thought he was asking. Can a larger person control recoil better than a smaller person? With all things equal? Yes. But technique and practice play a large roll in the real world...
