I'm not really sure where on this site this post belongs but I really would like to have a discussion about something that is bothering me. I have been addicted to oversized guns with over stuffed ammo and excessive recoil since I got into shooting in the early 70's. I am now 60 yrs old and I'm going to be honest with you all, I don't like it anymore. My ego does not like admitting to any of this but over the past couple of years I've sold my .338 winmag, my .375 H&H and I've backed off on my over loaded 45-70's that I hunt with in my Guide Gun. I'm suddenly discovering the pleasure of shooting .308's, .243's and my new 77/357. But what really has me questioning my manhood is my loss of enjoyment shooting the big boomer handguns. After a broken thumb and surgery on both wrists I just couldn't enjoy my SRH .454's any longer and sold them both last year. (I loved that Alaskan but loading it down just didn't make sense) Now...I'm questioning how much pleasure I really get shooting my RH .44Mag. It doesn't actually hurt and it is an incredible gun but the GP100 and my semi-autos just seem to make shooting a more pleasant experience. The big ones I've sold were almost like family and it hurts everytime I sell one. The RH is one of the very early ones, mag-na-ported and with awesome custom grips so I don't know how I could sell it but it is getting to be a lot of work to shoot it. I'd love to hear from some others who are may be getting up in years. I know you young guns out there will not understand and may jump to the conclusion that I'm just a wimp. go ahead, speak your mind. Compared to what I was when I was your age, yeah, I definately am a wimp now. And you know what, it's somewhat liberating to admit it. All feedback is welcome.
