big gun, big fun
My BFG50 came in a few weeks ago and I just got back from the range. I don't think anything will compare to that first shot. Between the excitement and adrenaline, I didn't feel any recoil. I'm so glad I bought it. Worth the wait. I've always wanted to shoot .50 BMG since I was a kid, and thanks to Serbu, I can actually afford one. The thump to my chest from the concussive back-blast brought a smile to my face. The rest of my friends and family really enjoyed shooting it as well. I would agree with what another reviewer said, that the recoil is similar to a pump action shotgun with 12 gauge buckshot (maybe even a bit less). I also like how easy take-down is, especially since I have to for it to fit in the safe. Nice, simple, and solid design with an AR-15-like lower receiver. Can't wait to put a scope on it and hit stuff. Probably put some padding on it for a more comfortable cheek-weld, too.
