    Please explain why anyone in their right mind would carry a short barrel 500 Smith & Wesson?
    Seems like shooting that would be inviting a lawsuit and definitely will keep your chiropractor and rheumatologist in business:rofl:

    I know, right?

    It’s like the rhyme says:

    If barrel is long, no caliber’s wrong.
    If barrel is short, stick with 45-70.

    He would also invite a lawsuit by carrying a $16,500 revolver!

    You're a poet and didn't even realize it.

    I don’t believe that he stated carry for what.....perhaps, we shouldn’t assume it was carry for self defense from humans! Juss Say’n! Though, a very light load in a .50 caliber would be a serious deterrent in a human encounter! ;) memtb
