I’m sure that there are many people who would jump at the chance to own “the world’s most powerful handgun:
…I’m just not one of them. Especially at $1.75 every time I squeeze the trigger.
Frankly, for that much money, I’d rather have two Ruger Super Blackhawks, in the more-manageable .44 Rem Mag:
That falls under “not under-gunned” in the dictionary.
Tangential thought: as any fule kno, I’m in favor of guns, whatever their caliber, action, or any of that. And of course, I’m not a fan of the “Who really needs a gun like this?” question, as “Because it’s there” is good enough for me and should be good enough for anyone.
That said: I just can’t get my head around the extra-large-caliber handguns like the above, or the Freedom Arms in .475 Linebaugh:
…or the Magnum Research BFR in .45-70 Govt, to give but two further examples.
I mean, they’re great as oddities or conversation pieces; but I just can’t see myself ever carrying one out to hunt with. Can anyone ‘splain to me why this should replace a rifle out in the field?
Maybe it’s just because I can’t see why anyone would want to go hunting with a handgun when there’s a perfectly good rifle for the job, e.g. a Marlin Guide Gun (which I want, very badly btw):…but I’m willing to learn. Feel free to enlighten me.
