The comparison was indeed not up to snuff! You should have used +P loads in the comparison test for recoil on the arms. Now lets not forget to inform those viewers that the 500 magnum does in fact have a porting job on this pistol and if a person would ever fire that pistol without ear-protection, they could have bursted ear drums or lose their hearing. You sir must have very strong hands and arms! The recoil I saw from several others in the last year or so, produced much more recoil and one fellow hit himself in the cheek with the Smith & Wesson 500 magnum he was shooting.
