How to handle the S&W 500 Magnum

And how not to handle one.  It's funny, but on the other hand kind of annoying when novice shooters are handed a massive handgun like this and told to shoot without warning of the recoil.   Nevertheless, the squealing and running away at the end is chuckle inducing.

The Professional Russian shows how to harness the massive power of this devastating round and have fun with it too.  Notice the difference in how he handles the gun as compared to the poor sod in the first video.

I still prefer the 454 Casull loaded hot in a Freedom Arms revolver.


  1. The .460 S & W has similar recoil to the .500 - but also shoots the 454 Casull...and the .45 Colt

  2. I wonder how old that video is?

    As I recall, that Russian firearms expert was murdered a while back.

  3. maybe this will answer some of John's questions...
