I shoot that gun one handed. But… It hurts
That will do it. I have fired a .44 mag Super Blackhawk. It’s fun…for a few rounds anyway. LOL
Yeah…were gonna need a video for proof.
I have fired a Desert Eagle .50 one-handed. It’s not pleasant, but the semi-auto action kicks less than the .44 mag Super Blackhawk revolver.
Never again sir. black powder rifle it was not something I care to repeat, didn’t even get a ball in the recoil and it still floored me.
.454 for me is just what you do to manage the recoil… I think a lot of times people don’t teach recoil management and people get hurt. I run into it all the time teaching women about shotguns. Their last experience was being handed a 12 gauge with no training and everyone laughing at them when it blows them on their ass.
The very worst recoiling muzzle loader was the TC Renegade. The shape of the buttplate was horrible. I bought one many moons ago and after 120 grain shoulder kills I dropped to 80 grains. still not a fun shooter. traded it for a TC Hawken and never looked back.
I agree. The human body is a very effective shock absorber…with proper stance and technique anyway.
Dittos. I can take far more recoil held in my hands than on my shoulder.
I have a .44 mag super Blackhawk with a short barrel. I can throw rounds out that one handed all day long. The .454 Casull super Redhawk is the one I shot that hurt. It made that spot in between my thumb and trigger finger ache pretty good.
My 12 year old even shoots my .44 mag with precision. I love the gun I think it’s a perfect mix of power and Target management
I agree. Revolvers have that severe backwards rotation which really hurts the thumb/trigger finger webbing. I will never one-hand the .44 mag Super Blackhawk with the small wood grips because that rotation is impossible to control. The larger rubber Hogue grip is much more manageable.
Mine has the stock wood grips but I can handle it pretty good. Maybe you’re shooting a heavier load than I am. The one I’m shooting isn’t the fastest .44 mag round made. It’s a Winchester 240 grain jacketed soft point going about 1200 FPS
That .454 Casull round i shot one handed was huge. The bullet grain was 325 but it chronographed over 1800 FPS
That’s insane for a pistol
I love wheel guns though. I want a .454 Casull along with the S&W 500 but I’ve never shot that one
I don’t recall the loads, but they were not target loads or .44 specials.
I’ll shoot cylinders if you’ll let me try it out.
I remember the first time I shot a 500 s&w magnum I was like “hell yeah” and then I was like “I thought that was supposed to hurt every YouTuber acts like they hurt” I have yet to find a handgun that hurts to shoot. I have shot some rifles that kick but not that bad. I want a 45-70
If someone thinks PCC got kick well I’m not going to say that. It involves feminine hygiene products.
