The mysteries of recoil
I own a .45 Colt Ruger Blackhawk and after shooting well over a thousand rounds of light and moderate loads, the temptation of loading up some 30,000 cup loads finally got the best of me. I read where guys had "busted knuckles" and "drawn blood" with these loads and was a little nervous when I fired my first. My first thought was what all the fuss is about. They were pleasant to shoot and not at all intimidating. My problem is I have been known to "anticipate" the pop of opening a can of biscuits and the recoil on guns is a tad more than a can of biscuits. What are some ideas on eliminating the "anticipation" of recoil and start shrinking my groups?
