Billt, is that you? That really made me laugh out loud. Thanks. I'm still chuckling. And when he (you?) pulled the trigger I was thinking "who wants a 4" 500. 700 grain head!?" Then BANG. LOL Reminds me of the time I first shot a .454 Casull (Freedom Arms?).

Owner was basically in tears. It hurt him to shoot and his hands were literally bloody. He couldn't afford to take the loss and sell it. He loaded it for me. I put on cotton work gloves and fired 1 shot from isosceles hold and it came out of my left hand. That was enough. He was MAD I wouldn't fire the rest he was so anxious to get rid of the ammo!

Yo, Durango, less caffeine, more peace on earth.

Any chance you can post that guy's X-ray? I'm sort of glad

this came up though, because I'm getting older, and as I become a

geezer, my bones are probably getting brittler, too. So I'm

going to have to remember to be careful so I can still shoot the

guns I already enjoy.

X-Ray? Ooo, Durango, that's twice, and two against one. I think you should put a battery on your shoulder and dare them to knock it off. LOL

Rhetorical: can any handgunner and archer anywhere in Wyoming really be well known?

It's all good guys.

No, not me. My Ruger .454 is much worse to shoot than my Magnum Research BFR .500 S&W is.

I don't doubt what you're telling me is true about your friends hand. What I am skeptical of is that is was strictly shooting high powered handguns that was the sole cause of it. I can give a .357 Magnum to a 75 year old with Osteoporosis and it can cause damage, that doesn't mean it's the guns fault, anymore than you can blame keyboards for Carpel Tunnel disease.

Well, it's not an X-Ray or a well known Wyoming but I'm sold. Sorta...

Now, if it's not too painful, shake hands guys and make nice.

Well, I'll be 60 on election day, and have been shooting high powered sixguns, (.44 Magnum and larger), since 1973, (when I turned 21 and was old enough to buy one in Illinois.) My hands are about the least of my problems. My back, well that's another story.
