    That's gotta have some kinda recoil!

    recoil? recoil? we don't worry bout no stinkin' recoil. Remember the Lee Juris single shot Thompson Center Pistols. Heck, most everything on the African Contintent was killed with one. I shot a .308 Win. caliber one that had its own mini harris bipod off a bench, and the damn thing bout hit me in the head. It had some recoil.

    Oldest son got hit betwixt the eyeballs once, firing a .44 with a heavy load!
    He sold it right then and there, on the range!

    My what a big boy. You going to tote it on your hip? I heard they have open carry there now.

    I don't think recoil is going to be that bad, this thing weighs 4.5 lbs empty. It's gotta be close to 5.5 lbs with the scope and loaded with ammo.

    The guy I got it from was smaller than me and said he had no problems shooting it, although he said he only shot it 9 times. [dunno]

    He said the comp made the recoil more of a straight back push than a jump out of your hands arc back. That's consistent with the videos I've seen on youtube.

    Got an across the chest holster for it. It'd have to be an open carry unless you were wearing a trench coat.

    Nice, looks similar in size to the S&W 500.
