hand cannons

I went to the local firing range with a buddy who was kind enoung to offer to let me try out his hand cannons. I shot a .44 mag S&W, a .454 Casull made by Freedom Arms in Freedom, WY, and a .50 S&W 500. That .50 Smith is powerful pistol. A guy next to us was teachin his 12 year old kid to shot a .22 revolver. When the .50 went off the first time the kid's head snapped around with big eyes and said "Is that a cannon?"

The .454 Casull is on the left, the .50 in the middle and the .44 on the right.

You total sure that .44 is a SW? Looks mighty similar to a Ruger. If it is a SW that a new model which I aint seen before. Used to do a little Metallic Silhouette shooting. Lots of fun. Had an old chum who was shooting a .44 Mag and happen to miss the ghianias at 25 meters and hit the railroad iron they was sitting on where it was stuck out of the dirt a bit. Knocked all 5 chickens over with one shot. Course that count as a mis score or similar but it gave him some great bragging rights. For precise slow motion work like that I prefer a Thompson Contender. Shot one in .30 .30 one time. Now that make a racket. I want one in 7mm O8 one of these days. Like a nice scope on it and have a good sniper pistol. Fine looking array. Hide em from Prez Osama and Nancy Pelosi. They want em too.

James, you're correct. The Casull is on the left. I went back and fixed the post. BW that is indeed a S&W on the right. Perhaps I confused you by stating that the Casull was also on the right.

I sold a few of my big hand guns when brass got so high. Man we could burn up a ton of money on bowling pins in a after noon. But "the dirty Harry gun was fun!"

That guy must be pissed at his wrists.
I used to compete in Long Range Hand Gun matches; 50, 100, 150 & 200 meters. Using a Ruger .44mag (my own hand loads) I blew a 3/8" plate steel target into 3 pieces at one match. They were pissed at me on that one.
One of the Thompsons I used was chambered for .223 brass necked out to accept 7mm bullets. It was a wildcat called 7mmTCU. The bitch barked in a 10" barrel and hustled down range with a wallop.
I love big bore.
A little side story. Before I got into that sport and it was just starting out, the guys would have trouble knocking down the heavy steel targets out at 200 meters. They were using .45's & .44's; close up guns. Being creative hand loaders, some would drill a pocket into the tip of the bullet and seat a primer with glue. The result was the primer blowing when it hit the target. I doubt it had much effect, but it was a cool trick.
