    This thing is huge, shown next to my G17 for size comparison. Surprisingly, recoil is quite manageable. I got several comments about it while at the range. "Gun's bigger than he is!" "You hunt elephants?" Of course, after they watched me shoot it, they all wanted a turn.

    Wonder what kind of stares you would get if you open carried that beast?

    Of course any holster that saw that thing coming might jump off of your belt and run away. :lol:

    I suspect the sheeple would think that war had been declared.

    You'll never be able to shoot a BG because they will drop dead of a heart attack when they see it!

    Reminds me of an old joke...

    What's the difference between "ooooh" and "aahhhhh?"

    .44 Mag, I was going to get the 454 but the 44 was what I "grew up" on. Next will be the .500 (S&W or Taurus again).

    I've always had a fascination with large caliber handguns.

    I think the answer to your question would be dangerous. Think of little Johnny.

    "They made it for him special. It's an eighty-eight Magnum."

    "It shoots through schools."





    Nice heater.

    I saw a S&W .50 that was about that size at Bass Pro and nearly wet myself just seeing it in the display case.

    I asked the guy if he would take it out of the case so I could handle it... I could barely keep it up for more than about 10 seconds, and I'm a big ol' boy, not some little shrimp...

    I want a 12" barreled revolver

    I want a modern 'Buntline Special" -- a revolver with something like a 12" - 14" barrel. I don't know why. I just do. I saw a Taurus .357 Mag, stainless that looks a lot like this Raging Bull, but with ANOTHER 3"-4" of pipe between the sights. I can't afford it. I don't need it. It's not practical. But dammit, it's a cool toy and I want one!!!! I just DO, okay? :D

    I like these hand cannons. They're good for lot of things, even intimidation. How's the recoil?
