I tried shooting my 740 with one hand today. I had been thinking that it would be a good thing to practice. I loaded only one round at a time with an empty mag. To my surprise it went pretty easy. I worried that the gun might fly out of my hand with that first shot and what the recoil might feel like. After that first shot I smiled to myself and thought that wasn't bad at all. I ended up going thru 2 mags easy!
