    Default 500 S&W Magnum

    A friend of mine sent me this pic of a totally awesome 500 S&W Magnum. Gotta see it to appreciate the custom work that was involved. The Smith must have been just as proud as the owner.

    I'd like to see Rob Leahy make a holster for that! (How many cowhides would it take?)

    Sure wouldn't mind finding out which smith is building these custom 500 S&W Magnums, wonder what a custom job like this would cost.

    Default Kill it, cook it or just gut it with one shot?

    I don't know if that 500 could take a moose, but it sure could cook one.

    How about this one?

    Bears need to fear a guy strong enough to pack thing even when he's unarmed. That thing is about the same weight as an M1

    My brother-in-law built about 300 50-BMG single shot bolts in 97 and 98. Two of them were handguns about 14" long with an AR type grip about a third of the way up it's length, and no compensator. So that 600 NE is likely not the worlds most powerful handgun. They were completely useless but that was what the bid called for. I shot one of them after watching about 5 rounds put through it. It was very violent to say the least, but I must say not half of what I was thinking it would be.

    The guy that shot the 600 NE Encore was not expecting a forth of what he got and had little clue how to control it. You always heir of a gun smacking the shooter in the face but that video was the first time I have seen it.
