    The difinitive answer to handgun stopping power...

    600 Nitro Express Magnum revolver

    With a Bullet Weight of 900 grains and a muzzle velocity 1950 fps, it produces muzzle energy of 7591 ft/lbs or 3 tons! the Pfeifer- Zeliska .600 Nitro Express Magnum is 8 times more powerful than a Smith and Wesson.44 magnum and 3 times more powerful than the Smith and Wesson .50 Magnum. As handguns go, this is the absolute ultimate.
    For $17,316 it's all yours!

    Does that include wrist replacement surgery?

    Nice gun, but heavy. It weighs more than most hunting rifles.

    The .50 BMG single shot pistol has still got it beat though.

    What kind of IWB holster do you recommend with it for concealed carry in florida with shorts and t-shirt... maybe I need to switch to slacks?

    You'll have a lot of explaining to do in the court room, I'm sure the jury will understand.

    No, thanks. I bet that isn't really all that fun to shoot for an afternoon. Nor would I want to pay the price of shooting several hundred rounds during a practice session. Wonder what the muzzle flash on it is like at night?

    This is one of those where I have to ask. Why? Someone had to have been really bored to put all that together.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    At that price I could almost finish out my collection with all the firearms I currently want.

    At $40 per ROUND, you wouldn't want to shoot several hundred rounds at a time.

    Just think, if you used it for hunting you could kill and cook the game at the same time!
