Ok I kind of want a big handgun,REALLY big,so I've been casting about and the .50 AE DE is.....well kinda hard to get ammo for plus I've held a DE it sucks donkey balls for ergos,.460,.500,.454 is...um,fuck just how much is ammo!?
So I saw the BFR and saw it's available in 45/70,I have a 45/70 Marlin that cal is fairly sane on ammo cost and where one can get it hmmmmmmmmm
So I wanna take a ride! I'm eyeballing the 71/2 barrel to keep size (somewhat) within reason and cal 45/70 since I have support for it already,it should be fun with "trapdoor" loads and downright insane with something warmer,like the Leverevoloution shells.
And yes,yes I am nuts
My question is that is the thing worth it? or a steaming pile of eagle shit?
Never heard much about the BFR but Ive got a Thunder Five in 45-70 and its a blast to shoot. If your wanting it for a practical reason though, ide go for the BFR with a longer barrel.
I have BFR .500 magnum and its extremely accurate and reliable revolver with more power than ever needed.
