    Worst recoil you have experienced?

    Worst recoil you have experienced?

    I am sure others have been through far worse
    than me but.. my two are..

    1. Shooting a single shot shotgun with no recoil pad
    in a t-shirt. Shotgun was so light it kicked like a mule.

    2. Taurus ultra light snubbie with .357 loads after 6
    shots I tore some skin off my thumb.

    It's been way too long to remember the model, but it was my Crossman Air Rifle BB gun, for a 7 year old...that thing was a BEAST! Bip...Ting! Many a pigeon bought the farm from that weapon of mass destruction!

    I've got two .50 BMG rifles, a .300 Mag and lots of other hard kickers.

    But nothing hurts me more than the .444
    Marlin Lever action.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Hot loads in a Taurus lite...637...it even turned heads at the range.
    I also remember (not the make) a 10 ga. shot gun my cousin once had to shoot crows...that was a kicker!

    3 1/2 " 12 gauge out of a turkey choke, Rem 870. Yep...those pound. Don't mind my 642 too much though.

    12 gauge slug out of an Ithaca featherweight. Shot 20 rounds, and had to use BOTH shoulders.

    I shot a friend's military surplus rifle, I think it was Russian, off the bench about five years ago. The round wasn't that big, no more powerful than a .308, but with no recoil pad and the way that stock was shaped it hit like a Mac truck! I was amazed.

    The worst I've felt in a handgun was a S&W .500 Mag, hands down. The load was a 350 gr. bullet along at over 1600 fps. I let the gun rise up without trying to slow it down, it ended up straight over my head every time. It definitely kicks but it can be managed if you don't try to fight it.

    That would be mine. Thought I broke my collar bone.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    320 WFNGC at 1300 fps from my Ruger Super Blackhawk was painful. Any big rifle in the prone is a bad idea w/o a brake.

    It's a tie between a NEF single shot 12 guage with a slug, and an ancient .45-70 that a co-worker has. I only shot it just say "I did it"

    don't know what glock it is as i'm not a glock devotee but it was the glock sub compact in .40 cal...sob kicked like crazy even i won't shoot it anymore. strange too recoil usually doesn't bother me much. i liked shooting the 45 +p cop ammo out of my p345. .357 mag out of a snub nose security six doesn't bother me either

    1) An ND I had with a 12 gauge shooting magnum load, no recoil pad and the stock was about an inch from my shoulder.

    2) S&W 500... 3 shots in a row playing macho... ouchie ouchie
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    .45-70 hunting round out of a converted 8mm mauser. I had shot a few light loads, then came the hot hollow-point, and I had forgotten I sneaked it in the magazine. Ouch!
