    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.

    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.

    True. But still, nuthiní wrong with a good olí .357 mag, especially loaded with some extra hot rounds.

    I always liked the .41 mag as a compromise, but it never really caught on. A friend who knows a lot more than I says the 10 mm is comparable in power to the .41. The only 10 mm Iíve tried is the Glock, and actually it wasnít that bad to shoot. But itís definitely bulkier in the hand than the standard 9 mm. It might not work for women or men with smaller hands. My understanding is the now popular .40 cartridge was a cut down 10 mm because of the recoil of the 10 mm.

    All of this talk about the Jericho without any pics...



    There, fixed and under some nice 4000K high CRI light for you tint lovers😉.

    Funny I have never noticed this thread before?
    For starters bullets only as these are in my phone.
    The pics suck but one is a 9mm long slide and the other 45acp
    Best shooting guns I have probably!

    Nice, railless. What is the barrel length on the 45? Mine shoots great too and will definitely give my CZ75 SP01 Shadow a run for its money.

    Not sure and both are in the safe sleeping.
    A friend keeps trying CZ variants and we always come back to these.
    The fit & finish really is just tighter where it matters I guess and it shows on the target.
    I also have a Beretta M9 Commercial slightly tweaked and it is a real shooter too but just different.

    It doesn't matter anyway, it is likely too short for me to own up here😔.

    I love CZ pistols but, it's funny because this Jericho cost me considerably less then my Shadow yet shoots as good if not better even with no mods and the stock crappy grips. The one reason it doesn't get used much though is I hate the slide mounted Safety/Decocker. I may try and convert it to a frame safety one day.

    Nice. My dad had a stainless Italian made 92 when I was growing up many years ago and it was a shooter too from what I remember.

    I had that Walter in 380 and it beat my palm to death. Went back to shooting my Ruger 44 mag.

    I have not had that problem at all but the slide can sure get you if not careful!
    It is a little Zippy for what it is though!
    I like it a lot.
