    Buddy of mine got his 13 year old son a .243 for deer hunting. I was at the range with them helping to get it sighted in and I noticed the kids was flinching with the Rem Core Lokt 100gr. He mentioned the recoil was bothering him. I know the .243 is a light round for most of us but does...

    After taking this forums advice in this thread, I'm back for a little more related advice. My fiance love her new gun, in fact shooing a 22 to my 23 in trap on her second time out (yep, my winning won't last long, and I'll rue the day I bought her that). What I can't find is a good recoil pad...

    I was cleaning my G17 yesterday when the small, thin disc broke off of the guide rod. I know Gen4s are under an RSA recall of which mine was not covered, but Glock is sending anyway since I've possessed the pistol for less than a year. My question is this: are there any other Glock owners...

    I have a Savage M-11 youth model in 7mm-08. I started off with 140 gr ammo, and could only fire about a dozen rounds before my shoulder was killing me. Switched to 120 gr. last weekend, and can get through a box, but my shoulder is still sore today. (I"m kinda skinny, so I don't have a lot of...

    I just purchased my first 1911, Kimber Pro Crimson Carry. I'm curious about lightening the weight of the 22 lb. recoil spring and what problems it could cause using 230 gr ammo. Would using a lighter bullet alleviate those problems any? The reason is my left hand lost an argument with a...

    Anyone here ever use one of these Caldwell Lead Sled Plus Recoil Reducing Shooting Rest or similar device to help them at the shooting range,I am very seriously thinking of getting one of these to help me shoot at the range, I don't have a real steady hand and figured...

    Hi guys. This is something I've been wondering about for a little while now. I was thinking about getting a 20 gauge for my wife to shoot as she's not a big fan of the recoil of our 12 gauge. I was talking about it with a salesman at Gander Mtn and he recommended getting a recoil reducing...

    Does anyone have any helpful hints on installing a new recoil spring in a L1A1. I confirmed that the part is correct but it does not go in easily. I was wondering if there a special tool or just a trade trick to getting it in. I appreciate any help.

    Any of you read RECOIL Magazine? I don't, and I honestly never heard of it until today. Apparently it's considered the Maxim of firearms, renowned for their sheer quality and "cool-factor" of their photography, and is beloved by the firearms industry for its freshness and bold attitude. Until...

    Springs for AK-47 Rifles & Shotguns Would an extra powerful recoil spring cycle my action faster or make the gun jam from not cycling back far enough? Anyone tried these extra power wolff springs on their AKs before? I got some from here for my M1 Universal Carbine and they work great, just...
  11. Handguns
    Want to get my wife mire interested in shooting/training. She's scared to shoot my Glock 23 saying it hurts her hands. Would dropping down to 9 mm make a meaningful difference? Also, any brands/styles of pistols "easier" to shoot (more managable for a woman) than others. I know this has been...
  12. Handguns
    I bought some TulAmmo two months ago and have noticed that about 1 in 20 rounds do not fire the first time the firing pin strikes the primer ( my gun then reverts to DA and the ammo this far has always fired in DA mode ). It was very inexpensive and works fine for me when pinking. Anyway, the...
  13. The AR-15
    Went to the range a couple of weekends ago. I let someone there shoot my AR carbine to try out the red dot sight. He was surprised that my rifle had such a small amount of recoil. He said he had at home a M&P NY compliant AR, (which I think is crowned barrel with no muzzle device.) Mine is a...

    I was in CVS buying some candy, and saw this magazine. It's been years since I bought one, but I thought I would give it a shot. Looks pretty cool. Premiere issue. Recoil - Coming March 2012
  15. Handguns
    hey guys i just was wondering what does a extra power or reduced power recoil and hammer springs actually do in a firearm and how do you know which one to use? I see them for almost every firearm out there but i just dont understand the pros and cons and application of reduced or extra any input...

    I love my new Remington 870 Express Youth. But I need a recoil pad that is fitted to me better. I am still having trouble comfortably shouldering it. Who should I go to? I live in Monroe County but would travel a but if it is someone people really like. I heard it would be best if I went...
  18. Training
    I'm a new shooter and discovered last night at the range, that I am pulling the pistol down right before firing in anticipation of the recoil. I think I am lowering the pistol before I even start to pull the trigger. I tried to be more aware of it - not sure its just a matter of practice now...
