Yeah M44s are notorious for it. I have some on video that is just incredible.

Great pictures. I have a M38 but don't have your photographic skills. Thanks for sharing.

Now seeing this one makes me wish we did the SVT-40 at dusk:


You definitely want to shoot the SVT at night, especially with a blank. Flame is two feet forward and two feet to each side, and you are night blind for five minutes...:-)

Awesome! I love the M44's giant fireball! I was almost disappointed when I got my first mosin (a 91/30) and it didn't breathe fire like the M44 I shot. "Almost" being the key word there :D.

So you mean there is hope for me?

Of course! It actually hurts my shoulder to shoot the M44 more than about 20 times without the recoil pad my roommie bought for it, but I shot my 91/30 over a hundred times within two days and I'm no worse for wear :D.
My hands feel like someone hit them with a shovel though. Then again, I probably should have refrained from dual wielding the Glock 27 and S&W Airlight with .38+p. Yeah, that was probably what did it.:43:

You were standing when you shot the 91/30? I start to feel it around 30 rounds when I'm in the prone. That and I was shooting the 98K prone too for 20 rounds, so yeah...

When I shoot the Mosin offhand, it doesn't feel like there is any recoil.

Yup all 100 rounds were off hand. I still can't figure out how to shoot prone. Every time I think about how to do it, I think the gun is going to recoil into my clavicle. I'll figure it out eventually.

Oh man, there was this time when I hastily got prone and fired and it slammed straight into there. OUCH!

Just experiment with it and somehow make it fit you. I did by working on my carpet before taking it and shooting. You just have to find the sweetspot by moving your body and shoulder. If it matters, I lay flat on my stomach.

I'll have to try it sometime. As of now, there's not really a place I can shoot prone unless I'd like to lie in the critter-infested dirt, or take up two benches at the local range, so I don't really have a want/need to do it.
