With muzzle velocity near 1450fps with 40gr defensive ammunition and higher than that with 30gr varmint rounds, PMR30 shoots flat without much recoil. The lack of recoil is helpful considering the precarious perch a rise has on horseback.
Last summer, a friend was riding her pony and coyotes went after them both. She would have liked having something like this on hand, more for the high capacity. Those who have to protect sheep or other domestic animals may have to shoot at predators or varmints without dismounting also. Getting off the horse cuts down on the shooter’s visibility.
PS: This horse is gun-trained. Hearing protection for horses is recommended if high-volume firing is expected.
