Gregg, that didn't come across as too commercial. Just an overview of what's out there to help with recoil. My FA .454 is ported and it's not bad at all to shoot. If I remember correctly the worst I ever shot was a 10" Contender in 30-30.

Take it that it was not ported ?
Mine is a 12 inch and ported and it is a dream to shoot.

The hardest kicking handgun I have is my TC Encore 460 S&W Mag. I've had a lot of guys change their mind after watching me shoot it.
You should see the pics of Whit shooting his 50 Alaskan and ask him about the bump on his head.

Never seen anything worse than my Kahnke .54. makes a hot load in a .454 feel like a cap gun. Over 90lbs free recoil.

My 30-30 contender is a 14 inch and is ported. Recoil is not a problem at all.

A good set of grips that fit YOUR hand and a muzzle brake will tame MOST handgun recoil. But when you get into the truly big stuff say .454 and up they still hurt,and it takes lots of concentration and practice to shoot them well. Would not shoot that 50 Alaskan on a bet,think more of my hands and head than that.

Agree with junebug.

Leave the bigger stuff to the younger guys.
