Default Shooting the S&W 500 for the first time.

Some back story. My Uncles wife bought a S&W 500 for my uncles 40th birthday recently. Yesterday was the first time we have been able to make it to the range with this monster.

My first impressions are the thing is heavy and over sized. I was expecting to need some chiropractic service or maybe expect a trip to the emergency room to repair my wrists due to the recoil.

So you can see how big the round is, check out the side by side. The round of the right is a .45.

Well the recoil wasn't as bad as I thought is was going to be. I myself will probably never own one because the cost of ammunition. 12 rounds were close to 50 bucks with tax.

Here are a few videos of us having some fun with his new present.

Here is what this monster does to watermelons:
