    Very good. Also the .50 Desert Eagle was not that bad to shoot because itís so heavy that by itself compensates for much of the recoil.
    It is better to buy a beautiful, expensive, custom flashlight than to curse the darkness.

    I guess it's safe to say that you might not like the .454 Casull or S&W .460 then. They both make a .44 mag feel very soft by comparison.

    One thing a lot of people do wrong when shooting a larger caliber handgun is to brace the arm too much, guaranteeing that all the recoil gets solidly transmitted back into the hand rather than having just the slightest bit of flex going on.

    If you're willing to give it another try though, you may find better luck with a set of Hogues in place of those Pachmayr grips.

    Marduke - Solitaire...I've seen matches which are brighter AND have a longer runtime. 光陰矢の如し

    Yeah, just looked up the Wiki article on the Casull as I didnít remember the exact numbers anymore, and it states the Casull has 5 times the recoil of the .45 Colt and 75% more than the .44 Magnum.

    ...and the S&W .460 takes .45 Colt for a light load and .454 Casull for a medium load.

    Me too!

    The biggest cal I've shot is my .357 mag...respectable, but a peashooter compared with the .454 Casull.
