I'll add that felt recoil varies between types of guns too - pistol or revolver. I prefer revolver recoil to pistol recoil.Originally posted by bountyhunter:
Be advised that all felt recoil is highly dependent on gun weight, barrel length, type of grips, and bullet grain weight.
If I read this right, you're saying that you can hold the slide closed throughout the shot? Leaving the spent casing in the pistol?Originally posted by SaxonPig:
On the .45 the recoil is really the mass of the slide moving rearward. I once held the slide closed with my off hand and was amazed at the lack of actual recoil from firing. Recoil is mostly in the mind.
