The M6 Scout over/under 410/22 is similar. The 410 recoils harder than any 20 gauge I have ever shot. Really short stock and a slightly funky hold to squeeze the “trigger” makes it painful for me.
I had a .380 and a .32. The .32 wasn't as snappy, but still didn't feed worth a damn. Yup, love the Luger- very smooth and reliable with good magazines.
The Browning High Power.
No, really. I no longer have a scar, because it has been years but because I was around enough GP35 people I HAD to shoot them, a lot. Not a round or two, but hours of drills with them. If I grip it right, like you should, to control recoil etc properly, the hammer comes back and puts a rectangular hole in the top of the web of my hand. Then the blood comes out. If I grip it oddly, it only just kisses that, and it doesn't take much shooting (esp with a scar from before!) to make that hurt.
Commander/Rowel hammer? Still contacts, just whacks instead of putting a hole, but similar, I can end up with road-rash looking damage, spots of blood coming out over a big rectangular area. I am consistent so do that for a couple hours and it makes a pattern, you can count the grooves in the hammer.
I shoot, as stated, a LOT of things. Cannot, cannot shoot a high power without there being medical treatment afterwards. This makes me sad as maybe the prettiest GUN I have ever seen was a former friend's GP35 (all customized) and it got for reasons left to his wife when he split for another woman, then he went crazy enough we all lost touch and the ex-wife we still know. So some years post-divorce, I am offered this for... a song. I may name my price but explicitly not what it's worth, just a few hundred bucks friend pricing. She actually came by with it, I sat on it for 2 weeks before I decided: nope, can't do it, helped her sell it for what it was worth instead.
It didn’t hurt anything except my feelings though. I could spit more accurately.
I sold my M&P340 , because it wasn’t much fun to shoot . Replaced it with a 642 .
I loved those Activ shells. Still have a few boxes. Those 12 ga 3" are mini howitzer.
Even heavy clothing, goose hunting; shoulder would be hamburger
Don't know what load.
My Dad's drunk friend was intending to make a man of me, so he braced my shoulder with his, raised the gun to my shoulder and pulled both triggers.
Knocked us both rolling.
I was an under-sized seven-year-old.
Shotguns still don't appeal to me... .
A few other straight blowback guns that I was never very fond of either were the "new" Mauser HSc in .380, the Walther PPKs in .380, and the Walther PP in .32.
But my 870 rifled barrel with Federal magnum sabot slugs was quite unpleasant.
The one I liked the least was the humble LCR with +P in it. Much preferred hot .44 mag or 10mm loads to that little hand slapper.
I don’t miss it.
Oh, that’s a good one too. I liked shooting mine but never could leave a range session without losing some blood.
Carrying it was annoying too since the spur hammer would jab my ribs something fierce if I bent the wrong way.
Also don’t miss it, but just a little beavertail would have solved it’s problems.
Original Hi-Point 9mm carbine that lined up on my cheek bone just right and smacks me good enough to leave a bruise.
I don't have problems with Mosins even after a couple of hundred rounds. Lucky I guess.
Say, that 'minds me... I sprained or dislocated my thumb shooting buckshot out of a pistol-grip-only Mossberg 590. That hurt for a couple years. I put the buttstock back on LOL
Even worse is when you forget to flip the recoil buffer around before shooting heavy loads
I look at those 12 gauge no stock shotguns like the Shockwave and this is literally me:
