    What caliber....

    QKshooter's thread made me wonder. What caliber for Bigfoot?
    Reading different accounts, I've seen it estimated at anywhere from 7 to 12 feet in height. Bearing in mind a professional athlete 7 feet in height can weigh 500 lbs, I can imagine a 12 foot monster weighing close to 1000lbs.
    Do y'all think a .44 magnum would suffice, if the creature threatened, or would you need something larger? Obviously, a rifle or shotgun would be preferable, but in some areas, firearms aren't allowed. A pistol is a bit easier to conceal.

    I'll reckon on my 45-70 BFR doing the business!!! No use relying on a wussy .44 mag LOL!

    It's all down to ''big foot pounds'' - ya see

    Dear CCW,

    I'm a bigfoot creature that lives in the State of Oregon. The citizens of that state are trying to kill me.

    What's a good calibre for self-defense? You know, really rock their world and put them on their backs.

    Thumbs up

    I dunno..........I think a .458 Mag would do nicely. I have a Ruger Mod 77 Circassian Walnut (bought it in 1980 for 200.00 bucks) and a Winchester pre-64 moel 70 African .458 Mag (bought that one for 495.00) that's dying to do damage..<sorry for the typos QK> hehehehe

    Well, considering the size of a Bigfoot, I'd say he'd do fine with a Barrett .50 BMG from a standing position, and probably use a S&W .500 Mag with 10 1/2 in. barrel for concealed carry...have to mod a bit though...cut off the trigger guard for his fat fingers, and perhaps weld a trigger extension and grip extension.
