    Default MOst Powerful Handgun U Shot

    Just wondering what is the most powerful handgun that you have shot personaly. Mine would have to be a .500 S&W mag. that I shot a couple of months ago. And to add to this what was your first handgun that you shot? Mine would be a .357 that my uncle gave to me to shot when I was 11yrs old. I shot that thing, fell on my ass and the gun went flying about 10' behind me. Whats YOURS..

    The first gun I shot was probably a Colt Delta Elite 10mm, or .44 Magnum that my dad owned, at the age of 6. That was with him helping me, and 1 shot in the gun.

    The first gun I shot myself, without his help, would also be one of those, at the age of 6. The first gun I shot regularly was a .22 Smith & Wesson.

    The most powerful pistol I shot was probably .454 Casull, and I used to shoot it all the time... I loved it. I'm pretty sure I've never shot any pistols more powerful.

    First was a M-10 S&W .38spl. I was about 12yrs old. Never had shot a pistol of any kind prior to that. About six weeks later I owned one. Had one ever since.

    Most powerful is a S&W and Ruger in .44mag. That's all the hand gun I would ever need. If I need more power I'll get a rifle.

    Me, Ruger 44 mag. I have had several over the years.

    First was a Taurus 431 (.44 Special, +P).

    Most powerful was a Smith Model 29 (.44 Magnum). Unless you count firing an SAR-1 rifle in 7.62x39 one-handed, off-hand from the pistol grip with the stock folded.

    I don't remember the first. Probably the 1911A1 the Army issued me.

    Probably a Magnum Research BFR chambered in .45-70 Gvt. that I owned for a while.

    First handgun I ever shot was a S&W 357 at age 11. I was a pretty big kid for my age and was scared by the recoil much more than "hurt" by it. Didn't drop the gun though!! My uncle let me finish off the wheel too.

    As a celebratory adventure I did shoot a Desert Eagle .50 and a .44 Magnum. Didn't care for the Eagle. The recoil was less than expected (by feel of the massive gun anyway), but more expensive and just plain excessive to shoot. The .44 was not too bad. It reminded me of a cross between shooting a .45 and a mild load .40. It has the initial snap to it plus the "push" feeling of a .45 just a bit less of both -if that makes any sense at all-

    Good topic.
