For Those Who Believe Size Does Matter

Let me present the world's larget handgun, a revolver firing the H&H .600 Nitro Express (a round developed in 1899 for shooting elephants). You kind of have to see this to believe it, and even then you may think, "That's not for real."

That's one firearm that would pose some difficulty in concealing it.

Oh, NICE!!!!

Plus, if you run out of ammo and there's anyone insane enough to still be coming, you can beat them to death pretty easily.....

Reminds me of Joe Piscopo's character in Johnny Dangerously.

"An elephant said that to me once. Once."

We'll get you linked.
