    When the perp saw it he would have a heart attack and you could save a round!

    These are meant for ankle carry. ha. Actually, I love big hog legs. always have, BUT, that being said, my hands have got to the point that Everything larger than my 45LC is for the folks with hands not all busted up. ;) Nice gun though.

    I’m not either.

    .44 mag is my limit, and even 44 can be painful depending on the gun and ammo combination being shot.

    One-Shot-Wonder, cuz you ain't getting a chance to fire another round, unless you've got time to run back 40' to pick it up off the ground.

    I've been shooting 500 Mags since 2003, a mix of fairly heavy and a good bit of light "plinking loads" though even at the lowest end it's a lot more potent than any 45ACP+P.

    The issue I'd have with that one is that muzzle blast would be really fierce with full power ammo, much worse than the 6 and 8.375" barreled guns I have. Quality double ear protection reduces "perceived" recoil. Don

    Got a lot of Grizzly Bears hanging in your neighborhood?

    How many Ounces does that thing weigh? 70? 80?

    Great quote. Are these your words?

    Maybe in grizzly country. My .44 mag is probably enough for any beast that walks Arizona.

    Is that big?

    perhaps you have dainty hands.

    a dollar bill for a reference of scale would be welcomed
