    SPRINGFIELD, Massachusetts - Smith & Wesson has introduced its biggest handgun ever, a .50-caliber Magnum revolver.

    The five-shot Model 500 revolver with an 8 1/2 inch (23-centimeter) barrel weighs about 4 1/2 pounds (2 kilograms) — roughly a pound (450 grams) more than the big-frame .44-caliber Magnum. It fires a new .50-caliber cartridge that the company said produces nearly three times the muzzle energy of the .44 Magnum.

    Company president Roy C. Cuny said the new revolver builds on the .357 Magnum revolver it introduced in the 1930s and the .44 Magnum that it brought out in the 1950s.

    The .50-caliber gun, which sells for $989, is one of nine new models the company introduced this week at a trade show in Orlando, Florida. Cuny said it was the largest number of new introductions in recent years.

    Good god. My question to S&W: Seriously, is that really necessary? No!


    At least the Desert Eagle .50 cal is a good movie gun, what asshole is going to sling a .50 cal revolver around in a movie these days? No one.
