I want to be able to travel anywhere and have a gun that can take down anything. I am not a hunter, I would only use it in self defense. I'm looking at the CZ 550 American Safari Magnum with .458 Lott. Would that be able to take down an elephant if it charged me? You might be thinking "If he's not a hunter, why would he need that kind of gun?" Well let's say that i'm vacationing in Africa, and I come across some elephants. There's no guarantee that they won't charge me. Yes i'll be careful not get too close to them, but just in case on of them is in Musth. I'd rather have something that can protect me rather than relying on the vehicles speed for safety. Driving away would be my first defense. If the vehicle isn't vast enough, i'll use the gun. I'd rather be safe than sorry. Here's the link to it- CZ-USA -> CZ 550 American Safari Magnum Thanks!
