    Nice!! I have a feeling Bud was gonna shoot one this last weekend when he was away.

    I still hanker for a 460 but - blown that by getting the 220!

    Even though it looks rough recoil is really tame

    If memory serves, Dianne Feinstein said the .500 was the gang-bangers' weapon of choice and wanted to ban the gun when it first came out. At the time, there were only 2 in existence.

    Great photos, Bud. Am I seeing a smile under the moustach? That's the bbl length to have when you're the good shot you are. The reduction in velocity over the buntline special may help reduce the recoil. Where's the smoke and fire? The 460, 454, 45 Colt combo of the 460 S&W has some advantages, but the 500 would be a better bet for Cape Buffs if you let them get really close as they charge. Getting off the line of force would have a whole new meaning.

    I think she went so far as to say that several policemen had already been killed (or something totally stupid). Even though, like you said, the only ones in existence were the prototypes, they weren't even on the market yet.
