    Big boomer?

    Speaking with a gun club guy this afternoon - and he mentioned he was going to buy a revo - having thus far been rifle and semi only.

    He told me he was getting a GP-100 in 375 mag !!!!!!!! I suggested it just might be 357 mag - but no - he was insistant that this was to be 375!

    Hmmm - interesting prospect huh - .375 H&H in a handgun - now there is some potential (for a bust wrist!).

    Got me to conjuring up a pic of what it might be like - very possibly something like this but fatter cylinder - 5 shot only naturally This one probably about scaled for .223!

    Hmm - maybe this'd hold the bigger round better - hmmm - now too short.

    I don't know about the Ruger Gp-100, but magnum research does make a revolver in .45-70, and thats about what it looks like.

    One more try (it's only spoof!) - cylinder might just take the big shells

    P95, I think I have seen that red backdrop behind darn near every firearm that exists while scrolling through the forums. Don't forget the compensator on your pictures, if Ruger was gonna make a short barrelled .375, it would need one cool compensator to compete with the S&W short barrelled 500's and 460's

    Hahaha - sorry about the red!!! I did sorta standardize on it LOL!

    Compensator - indeed yes - rather necessary if we had the beast for real. This one ''as is'' that I dreamed up, is solely for masochists

    I would really hate to shoot that gun. A 500 S&W Magnum is enough for me. Steve48

    Do they have one with a 2" barrel? I'd like one for pocket carry.

    Heres a S&W 460 with a 2 3/4" barrel SIXTO, prolly about as close as you will find, notice the cool yellow grips and case. (But no cool compensator unfortunately).

    I'm in college, of course im a smarta$$, I know everything there is to know about life. If you don't like the yellow you can get a 500 with orange. The whistle is so that some hunter can come and put you out of your misery as a grizzly survived all your shots and has now put the revelover where the sun don't shine.

    I'll bet that he is talking about the .375 Supermag that was marketed by Dan Wesson for their silhouette guns.

    That would make more sense and it is entirely possible.

    The .375 H+H wouldnt work. Its a tapered case and it would suffer the same consequence as any other tapered case thats ever been tried in a revolver, they "back out" after they are shot and it ties up the gun.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.
