I have no desire to shoot that thing at all, back in my younger days, I would have jumped all over it!

Bring it on!!!!! ;D NO WAY!!!! The recoil factor in my 6 pound "Peashooter' with its top load of a 325 grain bullet at 2263 fps is:47 ft lbs at 22 fps......about three rounds from the bench and I am "punchy" (more so than normal!!!!)...but, off the bench it is sweet to shoot....much more forgiving.

For comparison: an 8 pound 45-70 shooting a 535 grain bullet at 1550 fps produces a recoil factor of 37 ft lbs at 17 fps.

The 13 pound 577 T-Rex produces a whopping 166 ft lbs at 29 fps.....I cannot even imagine taking that kind of abuse. :eek:

I would rather have to "talk" my way out of a situation, then to "shoot" my way out of a situation (with the T-Rex)........nope, not for me! As far as the wives go......mine is not much of a shooter (although she does very well with her little Smith 696, 44 Special), and she never gives me a hard time about much of anything..........as long as I keep the dishes washed, and the trash emptied! ;D

That video still makes me chuckle. Just looking at the posture of some of those guys, you know what is going to happen... ;D ;D Even a couple that have a good shooting posture still have it get away from them.

Quite the set-up.

That's what I'm thinking. Give me my gloves, earplugs, earmuffs, a wide legged stance and a cushion to put under my bra strap and I'll give it a whirl! ;D :p

Nah, but I would be tougher after I recovered from the dislocated shoulder I would probably receive from that thing. I mean, I would survive and walk away. The grizzly, probably not unless I had a dart gun.

I might give it a whirl too, but I might have to borrow your cushion... ::) ;) ;D

I really can't talk too much trash at the guys that let it rip and lost control of the rifle. Just the way some of them are leaning back, it doesn't take too much effort on the part of gravity to finish sending them back and down. Even some of them that had decent posture still took a spanking with it.

With a charge of 189 gr of Reloader 22 under a 750 gr bullet, it develops 2500 fps and 10,403 ft/lbs. I bet it kicks! In a 14 lb gun it develops 160 ft/lbs of recoil. Owwww.....

I was watching this again a couple days ago. I laugh so much every time I see it. I also wonder if any other gun in history has been dropped more times. ;D

It sure is funny,especially when the laundry gets knocked off ;D. But seriously anything with 10,000 ft lbs. of energy should be mounted on something with tracks (tank) and not fired offhand.
