and the answer is YES! they both kick like a rented mule!hey everyone, thanks for the replies. I guess my next question is: obviously--from what I've heard--the m44 has excessive recoil; does the m38?
anything that can get your brother to say he hates it....stock up on ammo!:09:The limb saver pads work amazingly well. The small size fits. First time I shot mine I had no pad, hurt after less than ten rounds. Taped a sponge to it the next day, was able to shoot a bit more but it was still bad. The limb saver really works. I still get scared and close my eyes at the last second sometimes though.
As for the noise, I was shotting 22s all day, switched to the 44, my brother came out of the cabin and said "I hate that thing".

Just getting the primers out is a pain.
Stick with Boxer primed brass.
