My doctor thinks I have afib, or atrial fibrillation, since it runs in the family and my heart has been going into palpitations lately. She's set me up with a cardiologist, should be going in a week or two for echocardiogram and sonograms. Meanwhile, I'm wondering if anyone who has or has had afib had any problems with the recoil and blast from large caliber handguns? 44 magnums and larger do have noticeable recoil and the blast can certainly be felt all over. I'd ask the cardio but I don't really expect a doctor from India can relate to handguns and their use.
