Unbelievable recall, heh? Gun came out of his hands and him on the forehead......




This guy did a little better but went back like 15 feet from where he stood.


What the hell is this gun good for? Maybe an engine block or really big game?

I think its overkill. Even the .50 caliber is overkill!

Ya, .50 cal is waaaaay more than enough. .60 is just stupid.

It also doesn't help that these guys look like complete amateurs at dealing with pistol recoil. I can't even believe that first guy was about to shoot it one-handed. What a moron!

I suppose if I had access to one, though, I'd give it a try, just for the experience. I shot three rounds from a S&W 500 and didn't really feel like shooting anymore, so I think one from this would be plenty. Thanks for sharing.

Yeah I don't agree with a .60 handgun. Its just too dangerous with the recoil unless you have years and years of experience. I remember shooting my dad's old 12 guage with no shock absorbtion mechanism and then sticking some semi-magnum shells in there. I would have a sore shoulder for hours but at least most of that recoil was absorbed into my body and manageable.

I can't see this gun being useful for anything at all.

It's like the Desert Eagle. It's all about the 'cool' factor.

I would have to agree with you about it just being about the cool factor owning it. In the military this gun would get laughed out of the room.

What possible situation would this be good for? Get your enemy to try to shoot you with it and knock himself out?
There is a bit of cool factor, but not near enough to offset the price of the gun.

It's for show and to show off. I'd love to shoot it!! ONCE!!


Another I'd really like to shoot ONCE is the new Taurus Judge 28 gauge.

This gun was likley built by a gunsmith just to see if he could,not really for a lot of shooting. Some gunsmiths are like hotroddrs, they like to build stuff just to see if it'll work,and how powerful they can make it. It's likely just for fun,an endeavor in imagination.

The first video posted must have been the FUNNIEST VIDEO I HAVE EVER SEEN but I kind of feel sorry for that fat dude getting hit with that monster gun in the head. He may have gone into a comma for all I know.

In any case I think that gun is good for safari trips in africa, protecting yourself from bigfoot/sasquatch in north america or simply to show off if you can handle the extra muscle.



That must be the highest caliber rifle in production. Kicks like a mule but the recoil is manageable since all of it is transfered to the body. I would actually own one if I had several thousand dollars to kick around. Yes I am eccentric!

Check out the damage to the watermellon using .50 hollow points with the desert eagle.


Obliteration comes to mind and yes jhp transfer energy better to the victim, thus causing more damage.

I have shot a 454 Casul on numerous occasions and it flat out sucks to shoot! You get about 6 rounds through it and that should be more than enough for most humans to shoot.

It is a lot of gun to shoot more than 3-4 rounds through.
