    That one is on my list of guns I would probably decline to shoot if given the opportunity. There are too many powerful guns out there that don't hurt, like Desert Eagles and Barret 50 cals.

    Like 3.5" shotgun turkey loads. Nobody needs that experience.

    Same velocity and same bullet weight of my Savage Smokeless Muzzle loader. It's pretty brutal.

    I looked up the recoil after I shot it. I was using a benelli supernova w/ comfortgrip. Can’t imagine it in a lighter shotgun.

    “A .458 shooting a 510 grain bullet at 2100 fps out of a 10.5 pound double rifle generates a 53 foot-pound shove of recoil. A 3 1/ 2 inch, 2 ounce turkey load at 1300 fps in an 8 pound pump smacks you with 66 foot pounds. When a cartridge made to kill elephants before they kill you is more pleasant to shoot than a shotshell for 20 pound birds, something is wrong.“

    I don't have a rotator cuff on the right side anymore. Pretty much just duct tape and bailing wire and a few pins in there now.

    the barret is a bullpup design so at least it feels like it doesn't recoil much, but the numbers are higher than that rifle. He needs to get behind it and set it on some sand bags, and maybe have a buddy hold it down. A friend has a 458 lott that he said just sucks to shoot, but it will stop an elephant :)
