Ready For A New Pistol????

READ FIRST.............

60 CAL. PISTOL

You may have to watch Recoil twice. Try to follow the gun. This video is basically a 'show and tell' custom built on a Thompson Encore (fancy version of the Thompson Contender). The Caliber....600 Nitro Express!

That's right...an elephant gun round in a handgun. The story goes that the guy that built it is some kind of custom gun maker, and built this as an exhibition piece. He takes it to the range with him just to show it off, and the big guy that shot it (in the video) had been bugging the builder to let him shoot it.

Only until fairly recently (early-mid '80's IIRC) the 600 Nitro Express was hands down the biggest, nastiest, hardest hitting, and heaviest recoiling weapon you could buy.

It was designed for one simple purpose...to knock an elephant flat on his butt.... IMO, it was really built as an exhibition piece for guys 'compensating' ....

This cartridge is known for breaking collarbones, arms, shoulders...of the shooter!

In the gun world they use what is termed a 'recoil index' to kind of give prospective buyers an idea of what a gun kicks like.. A 30-06 gets a rating of a 1.0, which for many people is about the limit of what they can shoot multiple rounds comfortably.

A 243 BR is rated at like a 0.4, a 270 was like a 0.8, etc. The 600 Nitro Express is rated at a 9.4.......9.4 times more punishing power than a 30-06.

Now watch the video......the video provides a clear, definitive example for the word "idiot"...?

I shoot and have a small collection of guns because I enjoy shooting them. I dont see the enjoyment in that besides saying "I have a gun no one can shoot"

Am I on my own with this one?

i agree... there is no point to that gun other than to say you have one.


and why is it always the skinny tools and the rolliepollie's that think they can show off at the range?
