It is a very cool gun, I have wanted one for a while now. I haven't shot one yet, but my buddy just moved back here and has one. So hopefully I will soon.

If you get a chance to shoot a 500 jump on it.

You can probably save a few bucks by getting a nice used one. I've seen quite a few on the S&W forum for sale because the seller fired it a few times and decided it is too much for him. :lol:

I shot one recently. WOW! I fired a .480 Ruger right before it. No comparison at all. The 500 is one bad mother. Now I find myself in the same boat. Gotta have one now.

Not to mention the ammo cost. I bet it must be really expensive to shoot.

Do you know how it compares to a 2.5" Super Redhawk in .454 Casull? Just wondering how to gauge it since that's the nastiest handgun I have ever fired.

From what I can find with a quick internet search, 20 rounds of factory ammo is anywhere from $30 to $50 dollars.
I don't own a 500 S&W but I'm glad I reload my ammo and I can only imagine if you are a normal person you would have to reload to afford to feed that beast! Yeah, I want one too :twisted:

That gun is a BLAST! Literally. Lots of "flash-bang". It's not a beast as portrayed on YouTube videos. Most of the people shooting it are young, slender women who have not been instructed in the proper way to hold a gun and have not been told that it DOES have some recoil.

That being said-using proper grip techniques, it's completely manageable. It does kick and is probably best shot DA.

Our local range rents them and although rounds are $3/ea., it's always a lot of fun!

Did it fly back and almost hit you in the head??
No,didn't even come close. The muzzle pointed at the roof the first time I shot it with sweaty hands but after putting on gloves I held on better.
Forgot to mention that its accurate,on my second shot I hit a bullseye. That's probably due to the super light SA pull though =p

I prefer the .460....Much cheaper ammo, higher velocity, and still quite a kick. Unfortunately, the .460 doesn't come in a 4 inch barrel, but I've had my eye on a couple of the 2.5 inch ES models and may pick one up if the price is right.....

Havnt shot one but being able to shoot 460, 45 LC and 454 casull is really cool.
