LARGE REVOLVERS - designed specifically for hunting medium to large game. These handguns have large frames designed to withstand the recoil generated by firing magnum powered cartridges. These guns generate an excessive amount of noise and recoil which makes them difficult to control in a combat situation. Its high muzzle velocities can endanger family members in the home and can even penetrate exterior walls, endangering your neighbors as well. Smith & Wesson Model 500 is a five-shot, single action/double-action large caliber revolver produced by Smith & Wesson, firing the .500 S&W Magnum cartridge, a .50 caliber bullet. It is built on S&W's largest frame, the X-Frame, which was developed because none of S&W's existing double-action frame designs could handle the muzzle energy and pressures generated by the .500 S&W cartridge. It is the most powerful production revolver in the world today, and it is being marketed as being "the world's most powerful handgun" by the manufacturer.
