  3. Smith & Wesson Unveils Magnum Revolver

    SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) -- Dirty Harry is now outgunned: Smith & Wesson has introduced its biggest handgun ever, a .50-caliber Magnum revolver.

    The five-shot Model 500 revolver with an 8 1/2 inch barrel weighs 72 1/2 ounces, or about 4 1/2 pounds -- roughly a pound more than the big-frame .44-caliber Magnum boasted by Dirty Harry in the movies.

    It fires a new .50-caliber cartridge that the company said produces nearly three times the muzzle energy of the .44 Magnum.

    Company president Roy C. Cuny said the new revolver builds on the .357 Magnum revolver it introduced in the 1930s and the .44 Magnum that it brought out in the 1950s.

    The .50-caliber gun, which sells for $989, is one of nine new models the company introduced this week at a trade show in Orlando, Fla. Cuny said it was the largest number of new introductions in recent years.

    Handgun sales have long been on the decline in the United States, and Smith & Wesson has struggled along with other gunmakers.

    But Smith & Wesson, long the industry leader, also lost business after a negotiating a settlement with the government over gun safety, agreeing last year to include safety locks on all its guns, as well as to a series of other safety features and marketing changes.

    When the other gunmakers decided not to follow Smith & Wesson's lead, gun advocates blamed the company for selling out.

    Smith & Wesson Corp., based in Springfield, is a subsidiary of Smith & Wesson Holding Corp., based in Scottsdale, Ariz.

    for some reason, i dont really like revolvers, dont know why.

    that gun is just dumb. it serves no practical purpose. too big to carry, not enough shots to make it worth owning for anything other than the novelty of it.

    if you know how to aim, you dont need anything bigger than a 9. :)

    it would be easier to shoot someone, mentally, than beat them down with brass knuckles. i just can't imagine hearing someone's skull crack continuously under my hands.
