    On Earth it's easy to forget because we have things like wind, the ground and friction to disperse energy.

    What is the projectile pushing against?

    Unless the bullets are tiny self-contained rockets.

    Don't take my negativity as meaning tiny self contained rockets are anything other than awesome.

    In recoilless rifles they are, but they're still sliding down a tube and exerting force on the tube.

    Recoilless rifles have recoil. If I fire a bullet from a rifle, the force the bullet is exerting to leave the rifle will be exerted back on the rifle. Newtons 3rd law, man.

    Is wiking recoilless rifle that much work?

    Basically they fire mass backwards as well as forward

    which negates the recoil

    Newtons 3rd law.

    That is what is important. It still has recoil, just not a lot. But if you were in a vacuum and fired it, you would still go backwards.

    I will invent a weapon with absolutely no recoil. Then I will withdraw to my secret hideout in the rocky mountains of Colorado and not share it with you moochers.

    Actually, probably forwards. The projectile is sliding down the tube, dragging it with it, while the countershot just blasts out much easier

    And it's as easy as making the countershot drag as much as the projectile

    actually, just tape two AK's together and presto recoiless rifle

    the point is you're still going to be moving because of it and it won't work in SPAAAAACE unless you want to go forward.

    If anything, it would just flip you over backwards as it exited the tube.

    Also, my grandfather used bazookas in the military and they were already outdated.

    Well, you're going to have something to move around with anyway, and recoil this small isn't anything to worry about

    but like i said

    just tape two rifles to each other each facing it's own way and fire them at the same time

    No? Is it too heavy? No, he was holding it just fine

    It is in SPAAAAAAACE when any acceleration will set you in motion because there's nothing to resist it.

    I believe the USSR made a variant Kalashnikov that would fire in a vacuum. I don't know what they did about recoil.

    Yeah duh. But when you say I promise you bazookas don't pull you forward, if you meant any shoulder-launched missile weapon you'd be wrong. Anyway whatever.

    Yes but what are you doing floating around without some way to move, is my point

    and the recoil is very very little

    I bet we could make something without any recoil at all! It's just not really that useful since we're not shooting in space.
