The Most Powerful Handgun on Earth

Shooting a .500 Smith and Wesson magnum.

FPSRussia demonstrates the awesomeness of the most powerful handgun on Earth. He shoots the .44 Magnum before showing off the power of the .500 Magnum. You can see a huge difference in both size and power. Make sure to have some ice on standby if you ever shoot this mammoth of a handgun.

The .500 S&W Magnum (12.7×41mmSR) is a fifty-caliber semi-rimmed handgun cartridge developed by Cor-Bon in partnership with the Smith & Wesson “X-Gun” engineering team for use in the Smith & Wesson Model 500 X-frame revolver and introduced in February 2003 at the SHOT show.  Its primary design purpose was as a hunting handgun cartridge capable of taking all North American game species.
