Excessive recoil causes many individuals to avoid using large caliber revolvers and those individuals who do fire such revolvers are often met with pain and an inability to fire repeatedly. This project takes aim at reducing both of these issues for owners, potential owners, and casual shooters of large caliber revolvers through the creation of a newly designed grip with the intention of reducing perceived recoil for the user. To quantify and market the effectiveness of the grip recoil data needed to be verified in order to reach out intended goal of 20-30% reduction of perceived recoil for the user.
