When you go to the library, just stick to computer and checking in on the forums.

While we're on the subject how cool are you?
Are you looking fro a handgun that shots or one you can enter in a beauty pageant?

I like big bore revolvers. (.45-70 & .500 S&W Magnum). In that category the Magnum Research BFR's rank up there in "Cool Factor". Bill T.

That 500 is close, but I'm holding out for the BFR chambered in Sidewinder...
