    If I had done something to start a blood feud with a very large clan of Sesquatch, I might carry a .500.

    Looks like it will be to much hassle and hard to find a comfortable holster. I'm still going to get one to keep on the boat for offshore trips. Lots of good info from this thread.

    I would get a 460 instead, and be able to shoot 454 and 45LC if you want, but thats me.

    John Ross would say yes, but he's rich and has good lawyers. I wouldn't.

    Don't remember asking your opinion about riding a motorcycle, or for that matter anything else. You asked for peoples thoughts, they provided them, and in your own words came to the conclusion that it "might be a little over the top" and I was concurring with your own conclusion.

    Why you find it necessary to get smart with me is beyond me.

    Go ahead and carry the 50ca. It may just be the thing for your personality and ego. Most CCW'ers work on their skills of "de-escalation" and avoid trouble at all costs, but you won't have to worry about that, cause you got a 50.

    Excellent choice of CCW guns. If you can carry it, then by all means do so.

    What kind of rifle will you carry?

    Who got smart first?

    I don't have an ego, but you made it clear about yourself.
    I posted my conclusion and determined it wasn't a good option after reading sincere replies, you wanted to zing me. You lose I win, nice job on the de-escalation reply.

    Dumb choice

    I can't imagine a worse choice for CCW.

    1. Limited ammo
    2. Massive shot to shot recovery
    3. Massive overpenetration issues
    4. Heavy
    5. Huge
    6. Deafening report
    7. Blinding muzzle flash


    The only reason to CCW one of these is to show off and then it isn't really concealled, is it.

    I'll refrain from saying the rest of what I think so that I don't violate forum decorum.

    I've just got to wonder about how this question ever came up to begin with? What is it that ever led the OP to think it might be a good idea? Is there a case of anyone here carrying a .50 for a CCW?

    Confession

    I did CCW a 4" S&W 629 last week. However, this was after a camping trip where I was wearing it in the back country. When I drove home, I switched to .44 Special loads and just CCW'd it instead of changing guns.

    Even that isn't a very ideal CCW gun. Handling a gun as heavy as a 629 in a hurry wouldn't be easy. A .500 would be much worse in all the ways discussed.

    I'm in with the "against it" crowd for all the reasons cited. Its a narrow niched brown bear gun designed with something entirely different in mind than what someone considering carrying a general-purpose concealed weapon should be concerned with.

    We now have 74 (nope...75!) posts on an extreme, ill-advised, unresearched choice of CCW. We've got wayyyy to much time on our hands!
