Sometimes a 44 magnum or even larger will not kill an animal as often as some of the posters here think.
Crap. Now I have to go looking for a bazooka.

Actually its not. The 500 s&w magnum was designed primarily with grizzly in mind, and if i recall correctly, does not meet the minimim legal requirements for hinting rino or elephant. I can see that you obviously dont know anything about animals, hunting, nor guns. Come back when you actually have graduated the 4th grade.

Two second google search:

Actually, hunting them is highly regulated, but is legal, in very limited and controlled numbers.

No I don't, because he was just chiming in because you came out of nowhere acting like a child.

I'm done with this conversation, and finished with you. Insulting each other on the internet... Nobody comes out looking like a better man.
