an alloy framed Commander in 460, with the spare mag loaded with 90 gr swc's, at 2200 fps. I'd have a Commander slide and a Govt Model's 5" barrel, with a 4oz muzzlewt around the protruding 1" of barrel. The gun would normally be loaded with a 70 gr, 3 segment prefrag, at 2400 fps, for use against men, hyenas, and the smaller antelope. In a couple of seconds, if a large critter or real precision accuracy was needed, I could swap mags and jack the slide. 90 grs at 2200 fps is 950 ft lbs, but the recoil is no worse than plus P 230 gr .45 jhp's, which the muzzlewt would make quite 'tame enough".

Zero the gun at 50m with the swc's,and not CARE that the prefrags are a foot off of POA at that range. On game, use Kentucky windage,if need be. In a fight, never shoot that well,anyway, when actually under fire. The swc's 'only" group 6" at 50m from such a gun. Breaks my heart.

The pistol would of course be kept concealed, so as to keep the element of surprise where it BELONGS. :)

Aint a damned thing(of any practical nature) that a 6-8" M29 Smith .44 can do that such a 460 1911 can't, and the Rowland can certainly do MANY things that the .44 can't, like be comfortable as ccw'd, and react,draw, and hit 3 men's chests, at 10m, in 2 seconds flat, from a surrender start.. :)

Odds are that if you had actually gone to Rhodesia you'd have been packing a 9mm P35 HiPower and an FAL in 7.62mmNATO.

As usual, a post based in fantasy rather than in reality. Theres plenty of 460 in africa, right GK.

Keep posting the drivel. Ignorance becomes you.

Speaking of .460s, I finally broke down and bought one. Actually, it's part of a Kimber I'm buying through, and having a bit of pre-sale work done on by, Clark Custom. Can't wait to try it out. Due in by spring, 2005.

Regards,
Jon

If he had gone to Rhodesia or any other war zone we wouldn't have to read his stupidity. He'd be dead, no? :D

" He'd be dead, no?"

Very likely yes.
