Default bought a smith and wesson 500

so unfortunately i live in ca and the gun laws here suck. well i was visiting reno this past weekend and stopped in cabelas. there was a section inside called the gun library. here i found a smith and wesson 500 with a 4" barrel. i couldnt say no. i haggled a little bit with the employee there and finally settled on a price that we both agreed on. even after i pay the ca govt to get the gun into ca, i save well over $200 if i were to buy it here. the gun will ship from cabelas tomorrow and then its the stupid waiting period that has to take affect before i can pick up. but now i can really have a hand cannon. my biggest sidearm is a smith and wesson 686 357 magnum. i have always wanted a dirty harry gun, but i went a step bigger this time. pics eventually..... when i get to pick it up

i am currently taking ammo donations. haha. with this big 6ft safe, i need to fill it. so i got a lever action .22 , lever action 30/30, another 357, and this 500.

I have been toying with the idea that I "need" a 500. That thing with a 4" barrel will be an absolute beast.

Check out Jerry taming the beast.

i dont know if there is such a thing as low recoil rounds for the 500. im an extremist. i want the biggest rounds i can buy. haha. but any of you are more than welcome to come shoot it. i will be in texas in april and will be bringing this beast. maybe when swss comes back out this direction, he can make time to blow a few off.
