    Because of the mechanism involved, revolvers will always have the most recoil. What made you think otherwise?

    Oh, stroking the ego of your mangina...

    I mean uh...

    What recoil? You should see the recoil my m44 mosin leaves...

    You should try mounting the sights on the right side of that revolver "homie-style" and start shooting it sideways!

    That takes away all the recoil. I've seen it on tv so I know it's right!

    So next time you hear soemone say a revolver recoils to much point them this way and ask them

    What you Talking bout Willis
    In all seriousness, a point very well taken. I have a ported Charter Arms .357 and my first handgun was a Smith and Wesson 629 with a four-inch barrel -- neither had too much recoil to be controllable, by a large margin.

    Well, try one of the Lightweight S&W J frames, like the 642. Trust me, there is quite a bit of recoil.

    Started with Rugar six 44 mag in 1958 and recoil was too much. So loaded lighter loads until I eventually was up to speed. Have always shot Rugers and have a Super black hawk ss now that I had magna ported right after I bought it. You have to roll with [ride] the recoil. It may take a while, but don't even notice the difference between the 44mag and S&W 40 or 357 any more. just a long as it's with a Ruger. As they ALL recoil the same way. Each brand Colt/SW/Rugar what ever each recoil a little different. If you don't roll with it;you end up fighting the big "BANG" That's the way I see it

    Very true - it does no good to try and fight the recoil altho this is IMO much more relevant to latge cal heavy revo's than snubs.

    I posted this before - a small vid (only just over 1 Mb) of my BFR in 45-70 where a buddy takes first shot but gets the shock right back into his upper body, then three shots from me - albeit with somewhat exaggerated ''roll'' but it does make a huge difference.

    So true, Chris...you can fight recoil (handgun or rifle) and pay the price, or let it push you and use your whole body to spread out the force...
