I have a S&W Governor that shoots, among others, 45 Colt. If I'm not wearing my Ironman glove, the recoil from that little 2-3/4" barrel nearly takes my thumb off.
But I don't care. I love that cartridge. It's my favorite and easy enough to load light or heavy.
Waiting very impatiently for my Ruger Blackhawk 5.5" convertable to come in.
