My two best hunting buddies were 6-2, 6-4 and 200 pounders. Always crying about recoil. We all got TC Hawkins when they were first out in 50 cal. The 54s didn't come out until later. My buddies cut off the butts of their Hawkins and put recoil pads on them. One was even red. We are all from families that first settled this area and have a lot of history going back before Ohio was settled. My buddy with the red recoil pad lost a lot of kin to Indians in area of what is now Wheeling Wva. I always tell him the Indians got his kin because they could see those red recoil pads easy in the woods and could hear them sobbing from recoil. I like cresant butts, I think they are better than standard butts.
