I love me some recoil. Both the magazine and the force of a gun as it releases a bullet or pellets. When I shoot one of my Benelli 12-gauge shotguns, it’s like unleashing a thunderbolt. Ditto shooting my Stoeger coach gun. A sore shoulder is a small price to pay for the joy of harnessing such power. That said, I’m not sure I’d enjoy firing a 4 gauge shotgun. But, as someone who used to jump out of perfectly good airplanes, there are times you have to engage in some risky business, if you know what I mean. You game?
