Mr Wright, well I agree with you on a many occasion. But I do not see anything wrong with the large behemoth calibers.
I personally own a X-frame 460 S&W Mag with an 8 3/8 inch barrel. It is scary accurate too. I carry it in a Simply Rugged holster and their chest carry system. The chest carry is easier than lugging a carbine on ur shoulder IMHO. The large X-frame weighs 4.5 lbs.
I know my .44 Redhawks are more than capable hunting handguns. Every large animal in N. America has been taken with a .44 Mag. But, throwing a 300 grain slug at 1900 fps is nice. Think a hot 450 Marlin in a handgun.
The recoil is not as bad as most think. It is also very versatile. You can load cowboy cat fart loads to full house loads.
The large revolvers have their place. Besides, this is America and our beloved 2nd Amendment says we can have them (who knows how much longer).
And besides, the large revolvers are a absolute hoot to shoot. A 500 S&W Mag is next on my list.
Sorry for the typos sent from my iPhone.
