    Shot 2 big bore pistols today

    Went to the outdoor range this morning for the first time this year. Got to shoot my dads new (to him) M1 Garrand. I admit that I am not much of a rifle guy but MANNNNNN what a sweet rifle. That thing is a freaking tack driver out to 200 yards open sites.

    After my shoulder was thoroughly abused from about 75 rounds of 30-06 we hit the pistol range. A friend of my dad's that went along with us brought his .454 and his S&W 500. I ran 6 rounds through the .454 and 5 through the S&W 500. I have to admit, the 500 was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. One cylinder through both was definitely enough though haha. All in all one heck of a opening to "outdoor" season

    This one had at LEAST a 8 inch barrel on it. Might have even been 10. I'm sure that made it a bit less brutal.

    Wow that sounds like quite a day. Your standard arsenal will probably feel easy as pie now.

    The 500 sure is fun! I've gone back and forth so many times when it comes to getting one or not. I don't really have a use for it other than recreation.........

    If your looking for a big hunting revolver I would sagest the 460 over the 500. On paper it shoots flatter and with a higher velocity. I have also heard reports from others that it is more accurate to. And as a nice bonus you can lode 454 and 45 long colt in it.
