A shooting buddy told me that he just couldn't stand shooting his Coonan 357 Mag. Too much recoil; too much muzzle flip; too much muzzle blast for him. He offered it to me for a ridiculously low price and I couldn't resist, so I snapped it up. Original case and all the paperwork. Don't know exactly what the heck I'm going to do with it, but it is heavy enough that I could beat a hog to death with it in about two strokes.

No, he's a man, ex-Marine Corps after 25 years of service, served in Korea and Vietnam. He's 87 years old and just doesn't like the beating the Coonan gives out. And you? Are you a woman?

Nice-looking firearm! I always wondered what they were like to shoot. You could probably tame it with a porting job or a compensator if necessary.

They are a handful to shoot, even though they're quite heavy. I would liken the recoil to that of a 460 Rowland. Not totally unpleasant, but you have brace yourself and understand that you're not going to get back on target too quickly because of the muzzle flip. Definitely not a piece you want to spend the day at the range shooting.

As a handgun dummy, what makes them so hard to shoot?

Recoil....large hot load in a "small" firearm....

Can you shoot any type of bullets in those, or are you restricted to something like wadcutters only?
