And For The Buffalo...

A .600 Nitro revolver. Not a hoax. It is hand- made and costs approximately $16,000.

I have two shotguns that weigh less.

HT Keith Ealy who says "This is nothing short of insane..."

But rather cool. There will be an outcry to ban it of course.

Merde!!!!1!1! I thought the .45-70 revolver was a big'un - I guess not. Did you click through and watch the YouTube of the guy firing a .600 NE Thompson Center single shot offhand? If gun control (per the bumper sticker) means holding on with both hands, the shooter is not a gun control advocate. Am I right in guessing that $16k could buy me a utilitarian nitro double rifle (not that I have that kind of money lying around)?

Personally, I have a weakness for the Linebaughs on a Bisely frame - much better aesthetics (IMHO) than some of the other heavy artillery. While I'm rambling about pistols - what I'd really like: a .32 H&R Mag 5-shot short barrel (3"?) kit gun - maybe bird's head grips (stag)?

Thanks for the Thinking Blogger h/t - much appreciated.

I see they recommend a bipod and a stock further down. From a pistol to a rifle it seems.

You could get a decent plain double rifle for "only" 12,000.

I really like those Linebaugh guns and if I ever had the $$...
