    Umm, he just let a $17,000 gun flip out of his hand and over his head onto the ground. The idiot deserves it if it is broken or messed up in any way.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I noticed he had his weak hand supporting the gun in front of the trigger guard if heda stuck his thumb up heda lost more than the gun

    Fired a double-barreled rifle in that caliber as a kid at a range in North Jersey...it was called, as I recall, a .600 nitro Belgian Express. At that time [the 50s], the big game hunters and guides used to practice up there. They were in hysterics when I was knocked backwards by at least 18" and I had a black and blue shoulder for weeks and couldn't raise my right arm. Imagine all that power in a handgun...and to what purpose? Pains me just to think of it...

    Ooooooh! Does TC offer that Encore with a threaded muzzle? That would look spiffy with a KAC or Gemtech supressor on it! That would be perfect for those dumpster rats behind the food court!

    The guy who let it fly over his head deserved to have that expensive of a gun slam on the concrete.
