Last week on Facebook Larry Correia corrected those people that think shooting a .50 BMG from the shoulder will knock them on down. As he says it really isn’t that bad. In terms of recoil it’s about like shooting a 12 gauge shotgun.
I was going through my old Boomershoot pictures and found a picture of me shooting one from the shoulder at Boomershoot 2000 so I thought I would share:
It’s so heavy that it’s tough to support it. The arm of my support hand was against my body for additional steadiness. No. I did not fall down. I don’t think I even had to take a step back to catch my balance.
