Default It can be done can be done if pilot technique is waaay off. During transition training instruction in my 6A, a bounce on landing had the student ‘chasing’ the airplane with a resultant porpoising. During one of those ‘moments’, he happened to jerk the stick aft abruptly and smacked the rudder bottom on the pavement, wrinkling the trailing edge a little.

So yes, you can make it smack but not with good, gentle stick motions.
