    You never know when a pissed of Grizzly Bear comes knocking on your door. :supergrin:

    The worlds largest production handgun...Smith & Wesson 500 Magnum. This thing is awesome to shoot! I shot a gallon jug of water with it...largest piece left was about 2" square. The hole it left in the ground was so big, I needed to fill it, as my mower would have fallen into it.

    Its over 15" long, 8.3" barrel, and weighs in at 6lbs empty. :wow:

    Pictures cant demonstrate how massive this thing really is. :shocked:

    The small round is a 9mm for comparison;

    I have one just like it. A very fun gun to shoot, everybody that shot it walked away with a big grin on their face. Get yourself some honeydew melons for targets. The 500 will vaporize them, good times.

    Congrats!

    Its not bad at all, but Im a big guy with big hands too. :supergrin:

    My 10 ga. Magnum shotgun w/ its 36" barrel, is worse to shoot w/ heavy loads. I know, different kind of recoil...Im just saying the shotgun is less than fun to shoot than the hand cannon.

    This one is compensated. It has upward facing ports at the end of the barrel.

    Great guns, love both of my .500s. They are, however, 72 oz or 4.5# not 6# empty.

    This is a gun you DON'T want to be light. Don

  14. Wow! Nice addition! I have always wanted to shoot one but I don't know anybody crazy enough to own one who would let me send some rounds down range! I've seen a few guys at the local range in years past who take those to Africa for big games hunting. Enjoy that beast!
