Most people are scared of the 500 saying its way to much gun. Fact of the matter is a 16 year old girl could probably shoot it if correctly trained to shoot such huge guns. I rate this at a 5 because it is the best I have ever shot so accurate you don't even have to aim to be on target. Recoil wise it has only a slight bit more recoil than the hottest 44 round. The hogue rubber grips and ported barrel make for a gun that is surprisingly easy to shoot and control. How ever don't shoot single handed. I found that out the hard way sprained my wrist and it hurt for about 2 months later lol. Any way as long as you don't screw around like me and try to be a cowboy. Shoot the gun like its meant to be shot with 2 hands you will most likely handle it just fine.
