When a firearm is fired, why does the recoil always cause the barrel of the gun to point upward? why not downward? left or right

    If you hold your firearm (resist the recoil) at a point below the centerline of the bore, the barrel will move up. If you hold it above the centerline of the bore, it will go down. Just think about it, if your pistol had a six foot long grip, and you were holding it at the bottom of the grip, the barrel would go up when you fire it. If you turn it upside down and fire it from a grip six feet above the barrel, it will go down.
