    Question What is the Biggest, Shiniest, Most Impressive Gun?

    I've convinced my buddy to get his CCW, even though he doesn't intend to carry, to support 2A.

    What he wants, is a big, shiny (nickel or stainless), impressive gun for the bedside. He wouldn't be afraid to use it, but he figures a big barrel in a bad guys face would add some fear/deterrent effect. Anyway, what would you reccommend?

    S&W 681. An L-frame that is a very impressive looking revolver, IMHO of course. Regards 18DAI.

    How about a brass cannon. It's slow to reload but it sure is impressive.

    A 12 gague pump is quite impressive and does some serious damage with the right ammo in it not to mention the cock sound effect if you have one waiting to be loaded in the chamber. Forget shiny and pretty and replace that with a reliable weapon he can use and handle well if needed.

    If a handgun, the 500 S&W is quite impressive!

    If you want the biggest shiniest handgun, I would go with either a S&W 500 or a Magnum Research Desert Eagle .50. Both are pretty expensive weapons, but handguns don't get any bigger then those.

    If thats too big, you may want to even try a .44mag revolver. They pack quite a bit of power in them.

    As for a weapon thats just big and will scare someone, I agree with Ti Carry. A pump action 12guage is the best way to go. The Remington 870 is pretty easy to operate, its not that heavy, and its one of the most reliable shotguns ever made.

    But on the other hand, I don't think its a great idea to buy a gun just as a "scare tactic" though. You should never point a weapon at anyone unless you intend to shoot them...but the bigger your gun, the more chances the intruder has of being freaked out and running. Just make sure you are ready to actually shoot someone if you pull it out.

    +1 Don't look for "impressive" look for effective. In the dark the BG probably won't know what you have anyway.

    OUCH! I shoot .45-70 in rifles, but that would be insane in a pistol...especially without a muzzle brake! "BFR" indeed!

    How about a 'HOWDA' style double pistol?

    This one is in .45-70 as well:

    Be dammed if i will advise even in jest a firearms purchace for someone who obviously will not train or shoot enough so that he is not a danger to his family .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    If he can find one that he can afford without taking out a 2nd mortgage, a .44 Auto-Mag might be a good choice.

    pretty much any anti-material rifle with an explosive warhead... it'd be kinda funny if some burglar busted into a bedroom and had some 20mm warhead pointed at him i bet it would make him turn around
