Or how to re-attach your arm from the elbow down for some of us "weaker" gun enthusiasts. lol.

Really, just shooting .357 for me is like taking a hit from a croquet mallet to the arm. I cant imagine what it would be to shoot a .460 or .500.

Cant hit a freaking "Watch Children" road sign from 50 feet either with a damn revolver. If I ever need to shoot someone to save my life, Im screwed.

Oh well, guess Ill just have to wait untill Im of age to legally buy and own a firearm then hit the ranges on the weekends. I have a list built up of fun toys that go boom that I will be adding to my already growing collection of things that go "pop" or "clack".

With a little practice it is not to hard to shoot them. I shot around a 1 1/2 in. group with my 45/70 at 100 meters... and that was with factory ammo (405gr. bullet). Just don't try and stop the recoil ... it is going to come up on you so let it, just hold on to it.
Peace

.460 is quite a bit more powerful than the .500, just doesn't sound as impressive though.

Why not just get an M1 carbine and leave it alone? .30 carbine ammo is pretty much the same power as .357 anyway, and now that Wolf makes ammo for it it is fairly plentiful. Plus with .357 and .44 you get into the problems of having rimmed rounds in a magazine.

I remember reading about a company that converts the M-1 carbine to 45 Winchester magnum. I think it was called Le-mag. As far as buying one of the new S&W`s, if I was going into a place that the bears were that bad, I would prefer to have a large bore rifle or shotgun instead. I purchased a 4" barreled Colt Andaconda in 44mag once. It was a extremely nice gun, but less than pleasent to shoot with full power loads. I would shoot either of these S&W`s though, I just wouldn`t buy one with that short of a barrel.

I think the revolver is to shoot yourself with while the bear is eating your axe. At least save the last round for a "saving grace" -

Looks like my post from last night is gone...

Scmitty, if they have an upper out there for AR's that will shoot 22LR, 9mm and 45ACP, I dont see why someone couldnt convert one to shoot 357mag.

I know there was one autoloader in 357mag (other than teh Mateba) so the function has been proven in a pistol.

Yeah bro.. the desert Eagle was in .357 Mag..... the only bitch of it would be having mag's made...because other than those little 8rd DE mags.. I don't know of anyone else who makes a mag that would need work to convert it for a .357.... like I said before, it's more of a pipe dream.. kind of like the silly crap we think up here.

When I was competing on a regular basis there was a guy who shot with us using his 357 Eagle. He would hit 4 in. plates and they would fly 15 + feet back. We asked him why he did not use his .50 and he said he did not have enough mags for it.

Mags are expensive for the DE... like around $30 a piece, new. and that's for a single stack sub 10 round mag... pricey little bastards!

Talk about $$$. When we still had the "assault weapons" ban I paid $80 for a Sig high cap mag. Glock mags $60 + and now they are $20. $30 is a pretty good deal for a high quality mag.
