World's Most Powerful Handgun  (Read 2376 times)

This video clip is showing a Contender chambered for a .600 Express Nitro.

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.

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 rear....

This rifle cartridge is known for breaking collarbones, arms, shoulders of the shooter!  In the gun world they use what is termed 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 comfortably.
A 243 BR is rated at like a 0.4, a 270 was like a 0.8, etc.  The 600 Nitro Express is rated at a 9.4 ......... 9.4 times more punishing power than a 30-06.

Now watch the video...... the video provides a clear, definitive example for the word "idiot"...?
