Anyhow. It was created to fill a VERY small niche: a semi auto for hunting medium and larger (don't think bears, I said larger) game. It is very well made but somewhat impractical unless you have that niche to fill, or really want one for whatever reason. Not much different than guys who have rifles that will shoot 3's or $20,000 double barrel shotguns.

I do have one though seriously. I don't have that niche to fill however. It's for sale.
Yes, this one is right up there with the S&W 500 Magnum. Guns for micro-wankers...

HEY! I said I had one okay... I got it in trade just for the fun of it. Not like I have two of them in a double shoulder rig or anything like that...

Well let's see...

If you wear a pocket protector... you need a .50

If you drive a 15 year old (faded) Subaru 4 door sedan... you need a .50

If you have to tie a pork-chop around your neck to get a dog (or any girl) to play with you,... you need a .50

If you need tweezers to take a whiz... you need a .50

OK let's see HOW MANY MORE "you need a .50" reasons we can come up with!!!!

My friend has one. Although it was interesting and impressive to shoot. I must admit the shockwave that went through my shoulder made it less than fun after only a few clips. More of a toy than a practical weapon.

If you are expecting atack from Jurrasic Park critters a .50 would be the way to go. But then again if you are expecting to be attacked, carry a rifle.

Same here. I picked one up at a gun store once, barely managed to pull the slide back, and put it back down because I felt like a sissy.

Look on the bright side - you would never have to wear hearing protection ever again.
