AR-15 = Loud, nice kick, decently accurate. Sitting. AK-47 = Surprisingly not a lot of kick, not too accurate (probably me), loud but not unbearable. Standing. Browning? 30-06 = LOUD! Accurate, nice kick. Not a plinker hehe. I was sitting. Various shotguns = All of them just about blew off my shoulder. All I know is it still hurts. I believe they were 12 and 16 gauge. One pump, one single. All standing. .38 spl revolver = Nice kick, pretty loud, revolver too small for me; felt like it was going to jump out of my hands. Standing. .357 revolver = Not a lot of kick, felt more controlled, not too loud. .40 (XD pistol) = Probably my favorite of the day. Everything felt perfect, I could shoot fast or slow and felt in total control. Standing. 30-30 = Fun to shoot, hurt the shoulder a little, too hard to load lol. Standing. .22lr (Ruger 10/22) (Mine) = Way too whimpy haha! Put maybe 700 rounds through it today, decently accurate out to 175ft. Almost no recoil with the mods installed, could barely hear it with ear plugs. Standing/squatting/sitting. .9 = Less kick than the .40, which made it feel a little too "easy". Quieter too. It was a Ruger, felt funny in my hand. Standing. I probably forgot some. I'm still pretty new to guns in general, and I either remember the gun or the caliber...usually not both. My first time shooting any of these guns, and my first time at a "real" gun range. I'm really liking the XD after shooting it. My boss took me and some co-workers out and pretty much just handed us ammo and guns. At the end of the day I ended up only spending $10 flat. I probably threw a couple hundred bucks worth of ammo down range.
