Double action rapid fire at 15 yards is pretty brutal but doable. Not recommended for old codgers with arthritis, you feel real good right after the shooting stops but 3AM the next morning you start paying the price.
The .357 and the 44 mag are both a lot easier to shoot and without my Hogue grips I never could have done this. I love the gun but it is a real grizzly for sure.
