the recoil of .22LR? Is that true? I've never shot one but watching the videos of them I got the impression that they recoil pretty heavily. I guess it would make sense that a small projectile wouldn't create as much reaction force as a larger one. I guess I've always heard the really loud bang and just assumed that the bite is as bad as the bark.
I guess I also assume that they have a pretty large grip circumference due to the length /size of the cartridge. This could make them non-ideal for some of the folks with shorter than average fingers.
