Cooper on the S&W 500

"Standing out amongst new handguns is the "Dino Pistol" of Smith & Wesson. This is a gigantic 5-shot wheel gun taking the 500 Smith & Wesson cartridge. It is so big and heavy that it reintroduces the job description of "gun bearer." It is to pistols what the 700 Nitro cartridge is to rifles - an exercise in the possible without any consideration of what might be desirable, needful or necessary. I bet it will sell like Big Macs."
Col. Jeff Cooper March 2003

I put a wheelful through one of the 4" ones last summer. One wheelful was waay enough! Dang thing had a fireball out through the vents that was easy 2 feet in diameter.

Its a neat pistol but I sure don't need one...

My father in law got one for his birthday. I'll second what Nate said, it was a kick in the pants to shoot, but not for long. I'd only get one if I had more money than common sense.

Great blog by the way, I stumbled here courtesy of the Gunnies.
