    I Like Hand Cannons But..

    I draw the line at the SW500 unless, and that thing weighs at least 20 lbs the recoil will likely be killer.:uhoh:

    would give whole new meanings to your confrontation with an intruder: "Don't make me shoot you son. Seriously, do NOT make me pull this trigger!" ;)

    I dont think that thing would be a wrist breaker...


    isn't .50bmg powder really slow burning?

    so wouldnt only a fraction of the powder have a chance to burn before the bullet exited the barrel?


    flamethrower, yes, wrist breaker, I have my doubts.

    You'd better hope he's crawling in the doggy door, because you need a lot of badguy between the entrance and exit points to slow that bullet down.

    Do you think they make holsters for that thing? Maybe a nice IWB for concealment. I can see that as a very effective BUG.

    Of course I've never been considered the deepest end of my families gene pool either.

    I knew someone, somewhere would do something like this eventually.
    CA, NJ, NYC, & MA should have a ban on it pretty soon.

    If you notice underneath the barrel, is a small piston. It looks as though it's got a hydraulic or pneumatic shock absorber, like a mini-howitzer.

    It's obviously a "just because" weapon. Who was that .50 BMG kit maker who got busted, Maddi-Griffin? He had cut his single shot rifle down to a pistol almost a decade ago IIRC, there was even a picture of a young girl firing it.

    Between the wasted powder and large muzzel break, it wasn't probably that punishing. Within a yard, the burning powder will probably do more damage than the .50 BMG slug itself.

    Now, a really lightweight (comparitively speaking to milspec ball) .50 hollowpoint with a faster burning powder, assuming the action can handle it...

    That thing sorta reminds me of the old sayings, "For every sailor, there's a boat," and "No one ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public."

    Though technically 'interesting' (and maybe a bunch of fun, maybe -:rolleyes: ), in the course of lugging that thing around, you could have had a useful rifle.

    I wouldn't even watch somebody else shoot that. I saw a guy's elbow crack his ribs due to recoil. Nothing joyful there.
