Freedom Arms .454 Casull"I first looked into handgun hunting when I found my .375 rifle was heavy to carry while climbing a mountain, and its recoil was too punishing. I am 5’2" and weigh about 110 lbs. When I switched to a hunting handgun, I found it challenging and fun to shoot…. I’ve had several men mention to me that the .454 Casull kicks too much for them. My response is they’re fighting it too much. Men seem to want to control the recoil but can’t, so they hold on too tight. I know I can’t beat it so I just go with the recoil and it doesn’t give me any trouble."
