What gun has the most recoil? I'm talking shoulder-bruising, out-of-the-socket kickback.

    I have looked at a friend's .50 Barrett and wondered how it would handle without that gigantic muzzle brake. In spite of its weight no doubt it would leave an impression in more ways than one.

    Had a survival .410 that weighed shy of 2 pounds. With 3" shells and a steel butt plate that was about 1/2" wide, it was painful.

    There is actual recoil and felt recoil. The difference being in the stock and weight of the gun. The worst I have ever been kicked was by a Browning BPS 10 guage with a poorly designed tupperware stock. Ammo was 2 1/4 oz turkey load. It gave me a sore jaw and badly bruised shoulder with one shot.

    I've been knocked out by a hot 3.5 inch 10 gauge when I wasn't shouldering it right. Doesn't look as bad as the TRex though.

    We use to pass the gun around and dare each other to pull the trigger.

    I'm not sure. I'll go back to the day when I was a skinny 10 year old shooting a model 37 single shot. Felt like getting hit by a train.

    A 3.5 inch turkey magnum out of a light pump is about as bad as a .458 Win, but not the most punishing. The .458 Lott is a big step up and is definitely nastier. Not sure how they compare to my old (stupid) habit of 3.5's out of a 5.5 pound single shot, lighter than any other shotgun capable of chambering and firing 3.5s. I wouldn't know, I've never fired a Lott. I'm a little chicken about them.

    How are they, men of experience? Should I try one?

    A 3.5inch turkey load out of a Remington 870 would be toward the top of my list.

    Gotta give the guy in the dress lots of credit for shooting it as many times as he did.

    Beekeeper,

    My secretary was looking over my shoulder just as the guy in a white shirt was about to touch that monster off from the bench. I commented he was about to to murder his middle finger behind the trigger guard. As he was shaking his hand in agony after the shot, she asked how I knew that was going to happen. I replied, unfortunately, I have been there.
