I have been playing with the camera and took this one to show scale. My S&W .460 shown with my NAA .22lr. Interesting thing is both are 5 round cylinders.
i'd have to say your cousin was extremely lucky and his guardian angle or the big guy gave him a helping hand on that one.One more example. My wife's cousin was cleaning his .22. He managed to forget to unload it. He shot himself in the head. The bullet didn't penetrate his skull but traveled around the outside of his skull under his skin instead. .
especially if you are not accurate.Size absolutely does matter - a lot.
I hate to tell you friend but that's just ridiculous. That's the kind of thinking that makes me post the things I do when I see people touting the value of the mighty .22 as a SD weapon. My "wife's" cousin was indeed lucky but that kind of thing happens a lot with .22's. They tend to follow the bone instead of penetrate it on larger animals. I've heard of people killing a walrus with a .22. That does NOT mean you can kill an elephant. They are incredibly hard to kill.I imagine you can kill an elephant with a 22
Do me a favor.I hate to tell you friend but that's just ridiculous. .
so.. don't respond to or quote my messages if you are going to do so out of context.I imagine you can kill an elephant with a 22plr.. if you shoot it in the eye .. etc
I had a long post posted here essentially LMBO at your theory and your attitude but then I got to thinking you must be a kid to say something this ridiculous. No one distorted your post. I don't care where you shoot an elephant with a .22, you will not kill it. It is illegal to shoot large game (I'm talking the big 5) in most of Africa unless you use at least a .375 H&H. Pro hunters suggest calibers starting with .4 like a .408 CheyTac up to shoot an elephant.so.. don't respond to or quote my messages if you are going to do so out of context.
I'm going to go check to see if this board has an ignore feature.. if it does.. I'm adding you after this post.
Recoil is more then a .44 but not bad. The pressure wave that hits you in the chest is much more then a .44 though. IT is close to what you feel shooting a .50 bmg like someone thumps you in the chest with a 2x4. You know when you fire it that's for sure.That .460 is a tough looking revolver. Hows the recoil?
