    WTF is that even for? I see no point in a handgun that nobody can shoot. Think of the flinch that thing causes!

    This was on the video page:
    Truly an insane handgun. Here's the email that was attached when a friend sent this to my dad:
    "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. Now think about this...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! Think about this, in the gun world
    they use what is termed as 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 thru comfortably. A 243 is
    rated at like a .4, a .270 was like a .8, etc. The ..600 Nitro Express
    is rated at 9.4...9.4 times more punishing power than a 30-06.

    That was just...wrong. I mean..to even build it I can't even see a reason but to get the idea in your head "Hmmmm..I think I want to shoot a pistol that cause damage to a shooter trying to file it as a rifle gut..yeah! Gimme gimme gimme!"

    People doing things like that make it harder every day for responsible shooters. You will not hear about the well trained shooter that goes to the range weekly to hone his skills. It's the mental giant on youtube that will get the attention of some Congressman that thinks that taking away your gun rights is going to make the world a better place..U mean..Every other government in history that banned handguns are all better places. Where unicorns knock on your door and ask you if you need a ride to work.
