I've fired the S&W snubbie in .500 S&W and have a 45/70 deringer which might be a bit worse than this. It wasn't a pleasant experience and I think the vast majority who get these types of guns will fire a couple rounds themselves and then spend the rest of their time amusing themselves watching others shoot it with the stiff loads. With 45 Colt rounds it shouldn't be bad at all, especially the cowboy loads. I've got the 7.5" SRH in 454 and even it can be a handful with some full power loads.

snap ur wrist like a twig? well it depends if ur wrist looks like a twig :lol: my wrist is more solid than that gun looks ane i could shoot 1 in each hand :wink: the only thing impressive bout that gun is that it holds 6 rounds rather than 5 like almost every .454 out there :roll: iv shot lots of unported .454s so im sure i could easily handle that snubby

Is this really heavy for a CCW gun? I want one because I want everything. :D Seriously though, it would be great with .45. The 454 would just be for scaring my friends. Load five .45s then a .454, spin the cylinder and wish them luck. :eek:

Yes, I just got a Para 1911 commander in steel that weighs 35 oz's and that is a bit heavy.

These are actually quite pleasant to shoot. One is in .45-70 the other is a .500 S&W Mag. Both have 10" barrels. The .45-70 has stout recoil with 552 gr. Gas Checks however. Bill T.

No doubt...If I had a snubby cannon like that, I'd port it right out of the box.

I had a S&W 686 Compact, and THAT was a "snapper"...And it's only .357!

:shock:

Maser,

He said they're pleasant to shoot, and he likely knows that a shorter barrel give more recoil. Only a fool would destroy a gun like that with your suggestion. You're a video kind of kid, post us a video of you shooting accurately these guns, one in each hand, and then I'll give more credence to your posts. One in each hand my arse. :roll: As always prayers continue, you'll live long enough for that young son to have a daddy.

if i had the special software needed to convert video from vhs-c tapes into digital movies then u would be seeing lots of cool movies of me shooting everything from a kalashnikov all the way up to a belt-fed 25mm antiaircraft gun i shot at my uncles place

First off, the short barreled .454's and .500's are a total waste because in a 2 1/2" barrel your not going to be burning 40% of the powder in the case. These large magnum cases burn heavy charges of very slow propellants. I would love to see some chrono readings from that Ruger "Alaskan". I believe Tauraus is coming out with a 2 1/2" .500 on the "Raging Bull" frame. These guns are novelity items. Nothing more. A short barreled .357 or even a .44 is far more practical than the same gun in .454, or .500. I have to watch what kind of powder I use in that .45-70 and it has a 10" barrel. I can't even imagine what kind of a joke one of those .45-70 "Derringers" would be. If you fired it in the air you could more than likely watch the bullet. A MLB player could probably hit a baseball farther. Bill T.

short barreled .454s or .500s are ment for self defense at close range against bears n other dangerous game but yea i agree that short barrels are a waste but if i had some huge grizzly charging at me i would rather have a snub nosed cannon rather than a long barrel cuz snubbys are easier n quicker to get on target n fire :wink:

This makes sense. .357 Mag.



This does not. .500 S&W Mag.



If one wants to make a lot of fire and noise, this one is hard to beat.



Just ask her!



For her the long barreled revolvers are just a tad too heavy! :lol: :lol: Bill T.
