I have a .44 magnum Encore with 12 inch barrel, red dot sight. It kicks like a mule, even sometimes, to the point of being painful. But with blued barrel and action, and gorgeous walnut grips, I find I have to shoot it pretty often.
I have also a stainless Encore, with .22-250 (15 inch) barrel. If the .44 magnum kicks like a mule, the .22-250 hits you like a locomotive, with a recoil that is not only really hard, but that has a hard, longer lasting 'push' at the same time. I love to shoot it, but with ammo costing so much...
I bought a .22LR barrel for it. Practice is lots cheaper that way. Both barrels are scoped with pistol scopes.
And finally, I have another stainless Encore, with 24 inch .223 barrel. I shoot quite a lot of .223, and like it for moderate long range shooting. I expect to put it into the business of coyote gettin' first opportunity.
The business of learning not to flinch is key to accuracy. It's hard to do, but key to that, is having a good trigger, one you cannot anticipate easily, so that you won't know the shot is coming, when it comes.
And that .30-30 will certainly put anyone to the test on that account...
I do like the whole T/C concept, and believe it to be one of the most, if not the most, versatile of single shot systems, the greatest negative being in the size of the 15 inch (or 12 inch for that matter) handguns. It takes a whopper of a holster to tote the thing around.
Yeah, love my T/C's...
