Tough one - although I think it has for me - a .500 with a 700 gn bullet - don't want
to break anything up to/and including my shoulder!
:shock:

Lots more fun to shoot the 50AE than the 500, Ported barrel and recoil soak up all that energy that makes you limp.

If you actually shot that revolver in a bear defence situation, wouldn't you damage you hearing pretty badly? (I know, getting killed by said bear is worse, but still...)

No, but up at our place, in Alaska, we've been very close to Griz (fishing in the rivers) a couple of times and my hand was on the grips.

There was a guy in Jasper, Alberta, who I once talked to - half of his face was gnawed off in a bear attack, years before, no question in MY mind that I'd squeeze off five w/o hearing protection if it came to it. Fortunately, bear attacks are still fairly rare.

... but then, same with personal auto accidents ... and I always carry full insurance. My S&W is comparable to 'full insurance' in the bush.
