Default 45-70 Single Shot....WOW!!

I shot two rounds from this buffalo gun. The thing literally hurt my wrist (its a single shot hand gun with a scope on top).

Anyone else shoot something like this?

It's a beast!!

Never had the chance (or balls) to shoot one in a handgun

The .45-70 handguns have been around for over 50 years. There was a 45-70 revolver produced back in the 1960s. I think it was made by Century Arms? The modern .500 S&W is more like the powerful 50-70 Springfield. These handguns have produced a surgical boom. More shooters are having fractured hands, wrist and elbows. There is a limit to what the human hand and arm can stand.

I'm not sure I would want to put about more than a cylinder through it. Hell, I might give up after one shot. I'd like to at least try it once tho.

Anything over 30.06 gets passed over by me.

There's effective firearms, then there's stuff

for which you either need a motivation, or

proper usage.

I have neither the motivation, nor the practical

need for anything that large. The 45-70 is a

very effective rifle caliber for the distance shots.

Wouldn't want to hazard a 45-70 pistol, tho.
