More like .950 Dickpunch!
And in the Comments Zercool says:
You know, I have a 3.5″ 12ga that some of the bloggers tried out at the last Northeast Blogshoot. With 2oz turkey loads it’s in the vicinity of 60ft-lb of recoil. I cannot imagine something with almost five times that much power – and I would decline the opportunity to try it. I like my shoulder and retinas intact.
But DAMN that’s cool!
Yeah I shot that shotgun, and there comes a time when shit stops being fun. I’m a recoil whore, but I am NOT interested….well unless you put one on the bench in front of me…dunno if I’d stick to my word.
As a Mosinista, I can appreciate the aesthetic of a big nasty gun with ungodly recoil.
I’d shoot it… ONCE.
As you can tell from my post…I’d like to say I have enough sense to not shoot it at all…but if given a chance I’d probably do it.
And you KNOW I love my Mosins! NOTHING beats a M44 a dusk tossin’ 150gr surplus ammo through a junker car. The results are BREATHTAKING!
The first gun I ever bought was an M44. Imagine my delight when the Army handed me an M16 years later… they warned us about a “pop with no kick” and I was sure that was what had happened the first time I fired it.
I still have that M44 and, as a result, am every bit as big a recoil ho as you are Weerd.
Yep, LOVE the M44. hands down the most fun Mosin variant to shoot. They teach you good form right proper, because good form kicks, shitty form HURTS.
Also they sure do light up the sky, and they turn some heads if you shoot one on an indoor range! >:)
I’m kinda surprised Jay hasn’t tried to order a snubbie for it. And for the record, I would try it, once, if someone else covered the hospitalization copy from having my shoulder put back together.
LOL! Yeah the issue would be that a snubbie being pushed by that powder load would likely have more muzzle energy than a .44 Mag going BACKWARDS!
The rifle I’d shoot…and handgun variant, I KNOW I’d pass, and I might not want to be nearby when some poor bastard gave it a whirl. My first aid isn’t up to date…
The only deployment of that rifle that makes any sense to me is in the style of a “pirate era” swivel gun. At least that way the boat, or truck, or bunker that it is mounted on is taking the force, not my body. But yeah, I’d probably be foolish enough to try it just once
PUNT GUN!!!!! 😀
BTW never seen anybody touch one of those beasts off in a punt…I imagine it boots enugh to get up on plane BACKWARDS….if you don’t swamp your stern!
NOPE NOPE NOPE.
Yeah, Zercool’s Shotgun reminded me of Clint Eastwood’s old saying “A man’s gotta know his limits.”
But I am glad we live in a country that we get to develop firearms like the .950 JDJ.
I would shoot it. Once. Just to say I did/could.
And then I would want to own one, just to have it, simply because it would give “gun control” extremists coronaries. If .50s can knock down airliners, this thing could take out the gorramed ISS!
Oh heck yes I would, just to see how the other side lives.
There aren’t enough recoilless guns to go around, y’know 🙂
