Ridiculous sh** (.460VFR)

Sorry, typo. I mean the XVR.

My father yesterday cackled that he got to play with one then slammed the phone down into the switchhook.

We have this thing where I buy something cool he immediately heads out to the shows and the stores, and now I think he's taken the ring. I see him next week (it won't be available, the dickhead rancher who owns the land we go shooting at every Thanksgiving who bought it will be away).

So, who owns one or plays with one they have access to, and who can talk me out of buying it and wasting a whole weekend on gunbroker? Big Grin

I do get to play with some dragon's breath while I'm in Texas next week.

Can't talk you out of it. They are a hoot. The first time I shot one I was almost disappointed in the recoil. It was a lot less than I was expecting. Just a slightly harder push than my 9.5" SRH 44 with a hot load.

Consider this though as awesome as the 460 is, if "ridiculous shit" and "wooohoooo" is what you're after then the 500 is where it's at. The lighter ~350gr loads are a joy to shoot. The 500+gr loads start to hurt after shot #3. I've been trying to decide between the two for the better part of two years now. The 460 is a more practical firearm, but the 500 has all the wooohoooo.

Yeah I don't need the early onset tendinitis.

You're talking me into it. Big Grin

The only reasonable solution I've been able to come up with is that I need both.

PETA is now putting kevlar vests on the squirrels.

Shoot them with this and your squirrel will just vaporize into a fine red mist.

You don't need that to take down an airliner. You just need a chicken gun to fire into it's engines during take off.

I would never try to talk anyone out of a S&W revolver.
However my big bore revolver is an old BFR 45-70...it is surprisingly managable mainly due to size. I have it set up for hunting.

I could be easily talked into trading it in for one of those Smith's...that thing is bad ass.
