****Ok, I'll admit I'm a bit (ok, a lot) ignorant about this. You mean you can fire a 12 gauge shotgun shell/slug from a flare gun?

A guy at our range brought out an old Thompson T/C Contender single shot with I think a .30-.30 rifle cartridge insert and it had *brutal* recoil. It was just stupid painful, and made my 8 inch .44 mag model 29 S&W with heavy loads seem *easy* to shoot in comparison.

I've seen flare guns on boats before and they don't seem *that* sturdy of a device - mostly for emergency use, and not all that heavy. Hopefully, you are just firing 12gauge flares out of that thing and not shotgun shells with 00 Buck or slugs.

Dunno...
