    Here's my two big bore monster magnums. A S&W Model 500 and a Ruger Alaskan 44 Magnum.

    Those are some fine looking guns. If only I could afford to feed a .500 S&W.

    I have a 7 1/2" 454 SRH, but will probably buy the Alaskan soon. It's just the right size for toting around the wilds.

    I've always wanted a .475 Linebaugh single action. I don't really have a reason to have one though.

    Wanting it is a reason to have it. :)

    Yeah, I wanted the Smith & Wesson 500 the day they were announced. People that have shot mine say the 4" compensated barrel has less recoil than the others.

    It's a fun gun to shoot, especially with the lighter loads. I got it mainly because of my lust for stainless steel, and because I just wanted it. That being said I often wonder about my decision. It is expensive to shoot. I have reloading dies but haven't done any yet. And unless Bigfoot lives in the western Virginia mountains, it's probably not very practical.

    That being said it is way fun to shoot!

    You think that’s bad! Do you!
    Try feeding a high-maintenance wife (x-wife).
