    Truly an insane handgun. Here's the email that was attached when a friend sent this to my dad:
    "You may have to watch Recoil twice. Try to follow the gun. This video is
    basically a "show and tell" custom built on a Thompson Encore (fancy
    version of the Thompson Contender). The Caliber... 600 Nitro Express.
    that's right...an elephant gun round in a handgun. The story goes that
    the guy that built it is some kind of custom gun maker, and built this
    as an exhibition piece. He takes it to the range with him just to show
    it off, and the big guy that shot it (in the video) had been bugging the
    builder to let him shoot it. Now think about this...only until fairly
    recently (early-mid '80's IIRC) the 600 Nitro Express was hands down the
    biggest, nastiest, hardest hitting, and heaviest recoiling weapon you
    could buy. It was designed for one simple purpose...to knock an elephant
    flat on his butt. IMO, it was really built as an exhibition piece for
    guys "compensating"...this cartridge is known for breaking collarbones,
    arms, shoulders...of the shooter! Think about this, in the gun world
    they use what is termed as a "recoil index" to kind of give prospective
    buyers an idea of what a gun kicks like.

    A .30-06 gets a rating of a 1.0, which for many people is about the
    limit of what they can shoot multiple rounds thru comfortably. A 243 is
    rated at like a .4, a .270 was like a .8, etc. The ..600 Nitro Express
    is rated at 9.4...9.4 times more punishing power than a 30-06. Now watch
    the video..."

    Calibers that size are nearing howitzer range.

    I wouldn't want to shoot it in rifle form let alone in a pistol style gun.

    I had seen that video befor, but dident know what the cal of the gun was, that is fucl<ing nuts!!!


    i don't think ayone regardles of size could control that gun, and another question, is there any proof that this gun is what the email says?

    or could this be another made up store to fit a video that has been on the web for a while?

    need to hit snopes...

    my T/C is chambered in 45-70....I can't imagine the recoil on that thing,,,
    but firing that gun in that stance and hold show's that he is an idiot.

    That gun would be very controllable fired properly,,IE: fired on the bench,,with a few sand bags to rest it on,,,and the proper "hold" on the weapon,,,



    BTW,,,anyone have a .300 WinMag barrel for the T/C they want to sell ?????

    it's real... it's basically an elephant gun cartridge put into a "handgun" that was never meant to be fired... but some assmonkey had to show off.

    Anyway... it's big... I'd not enjoy shooting the rifle version of it either.... oh yeah... a single round of .600 Nitro is like $100.00....
