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:
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!

That rifle kicked so hard, some of those folks started talking in tongues.

STP078,
you are Tuff girl, I would rather Artificially Inseminate a 1000lbs Grizzly Bear then shoot that thing!
