    Default Nasty recoil

    On a number of posts I've mentioned that the 1911 45's are not in the top 3 of my favorite handguns. Maybe not even in the top 5 and it has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that they're 45 caliber and nothing to do with any recoil. The recoil is minimal and actually timid compared to my Glock 40 and most certainly to my S&W model 342PD AirLite. Even with standard 38 loads I can't or won't fire more than 20 or 25 rounds because my trigger finger gets so eaten up getting smashed by the trigger guard it's actually bled. The fact that it uses an aluminum frame and a titanium cylinder takes the total weight down below 12 ounces. And when a 38 load comes flying out of a 12 ounce anything it's not going to be pleasant. Making it worse yet, the grip is very small, bordering on tiny to me. But you can carry it in a pair of shorts, go shirtless and no one would ever know it's in your shorts pocket. It can't snag because it's shrouded and there is nothing to get snagged. So painful as it is to shoot, if that happens to be the weapon I'm carrying if I'm ever genuinely threatened I'll take those 5 whacks on my finger. S&W discontinued them a number of years ago and I understand that a number of masochists are actually willing to pay outrageous prices for them so I have to think on that.

    Now the question. What weapon that you own is the most uncomfortable to fire?

    My S&W Airweight with 158gr +p semi-wadcutter hp's. Pretty rough to shoot.

    I think there is a doctor that can help you overcome your fear of 1911 pistols!



    ETA: By far the most painful handgun I ever fired that I immediately stopped, was a Taurus Titanium snubby, ported, .357 magnum with 125gr +p rounds. It would blind you and hurt your hand like being beat with a two x four. This is the little terror:

    This one. I usually shoot only about 12 rounds of the .357's before switching to .38 specials at the range. She does kick, but I expected that. It is a good nightstand weapon.

    When it comes to recoil, pistol weight is your friend. The heavier pistols have less felt recoil.

    The most uncomfortable weapon to fire I have is a H&R Model 48 12-gauge top break shotgun. Kicks like a mad mule.

    Taurus 454 casull, Traded for my S&W 44mag.

    A beast.

    Edit: I will add that my XDs 45 acp which is my EDC most of the time anymore. When I have the short mag in it and my +P Hollow points, more than 50 rounds will leave your palm hurtin most of the evening.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]LOL, For my friend Mike. I don't think a doctor would help because they're not his favorite either. He's a totally dedicated "Glockster" and at least I'm not one of those. Grins, I spread the love around. But I do have a special, deep affection for these two above..

    Probably would have to be one of my H&R Shotguns, but as far as pistols go, I would have to go with my Polish P-83. It is only chambered in 9mm Makarov (9x18mm), but it is a blowback, and the Makarov round is enough to make it on the verge of uncomfortable to shoot.

    I had a Glock 30 I think it was. It was a 357 sig. I got rid if it pretty quick because, to me, it was pretty brutal.
