Oh come on, lots of Marlinowner members takes much more abuse then this from there wifes! Some I'm sure would rather pull that trigger then face there wifes!Flat Top said: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.
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! ;DDWB said: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.
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.Starrbow said:STP078,
you are Tuff girl, I would rather Artificially Inseminate a 1000lbs Grizzly Bear then shoot that thing!
I might give it a whirl too, but I might have to borrow your cushion... : ;DSTP078 said: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
