"5.56 recoil? .30 carbine recoil? Huh? Such things are in the same category as hens teeth. Then again, I am a poor one to judge recoil. To me, full power .45-70 out of a light lever gun isn't really all that bad."

In case you hadn't noticed, the discussion was about suitable firearms for women and SampleMan's 12 and 15 year old daughters.

But thanks for letting us know what a real man you are anyways. A lot of us were, ya know, wondering about that.

LOL, I missed that detail. On reread the whole post comes off a bit wrong. Sorry.

The FN is cool and meets your requirements but like a lot of folks have mentioned it is a unique weapon that not everyone can easily acclimate to. If you have someplace that rents them nearby, take the girls there and see what they think of shooting it.
