Check Out Smith & Wesson’s Massive New Handgun, The .460 Caliber ‘Backpack Cannon’ (Video)

The Backpack Cannon: Smith & Wesson Unveil Their New Monster Revolver… ‘ A Great Gun For A Back-Up Gun Or For Hunting’ – Daily Mail

Gun Manufacturers Smith & Wesson have unleashed their newest revolver: a monster .460 caliber handgun which they say is ‘great for a back-up gun, or for hunting’.

Named the ‘Backpack Cannon’, the gun was unveiled in Las Vegas on Monday at the Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade show, the largest gun show in the U.S., which around 60,000 gun fans attend every year.

The cannon – officially named the Performance Center Model .460 – features a three-inch barrel, high visibility sights and synthetic shock absorber on the rear of the handle, as well as a massive chamber to fit the gigantic .460 caliber rounds, which are some of the biggest and most powerful bullets in the world.

Paul Pluff, who works for Smith & Wesson told Military.com: ‘It’s a very comfortable gun to shoot. It’s great for a back-up gun in the back-country, or even for hunting if you’re going after some pigs or hogs or anything like that.’

Smith & Wesson acknowledges that revolvers have been replaced by high-capacity semi-automatic rifles when it comes to self defense, often taking the place of ‘second-choice’ among potential gun owners.

But the company says they think that their new revolver will make a nice companion for those that enjoy outdoor activities.

The company suggests that avid outdoorsmen could carry the gun in their backpack in case their main armament fails.

And the huge caliber of the revolver means it could also be used to fend off bears.

In addition to the plethora of attachments that aid targeting and shooting, the gun is also compatible with several forms of ammo, able to carry .454 Casull rounds and .45 Long Colt ammo, both of which pack a significant punch.

Military.com gave a favorable review to the handgun, saying ‘there is still a place for weapons like this especially if you like camping where the critters are big enough to eat you.’

At $1,200 (£730) the gun is much more expensive than your average handgun.

Yeah, it is like that Frum guy says, no American ever uses their gun in self-defense

Alternate title? Elderly Minnesota man kills armed intruder, world’s most self-important douche bag hardest hit

 

Chalk up another one for the good guys with guns.

Pine County Deputies responded to the home of an elderly man on reports of a shooting.

When they got there the homeowner told them that two men had entered his house on the Fox road near Sandstone in what appeared to be a robbery attempt.

The Sheriff’s office reports at least one of the suspects was armed with a handgun and confronted the homeowner. The homeowner grabbed a handgun of his own and shot the armed suspect killing him.

For those that do not understand why I take David Frum to task over many self-defense stories, allow me to explain. Frum had a fun old-time mocking the idea that anyone actually uses a gun in self-defense after the Newtown shootings, so, I responded by tweeting links to self-defense stories to Frum. He never responded, so, I take every opportunity to poke the cowardly little snot who pretends to be a Conservative while he kisses Liberal’s asses at Beltway cocktail parties.

And for those of you who might be thinking that I have a genuine hatred for Frum, you are correct. I have less respect for Frum than I do for those who admit they are Liberal. At least they are up front with their ideology.

If you live in Virginia Beach, and want some pizza

You should go to this pizza shop

All Around Pizza and Deli in Virginia Beach, VA, is offering a 15% discount to customers who carry a gun in with them or show a concealed carry handgun permit.

The discount began last week, and Jay Laze, the store’s owner, says 80% of his customers have been visibly packing heat ever since.

And the weapons they carry in aren’t limited to handguns. Customers have carried in Ruger Mini-14 rifles and at least one AK-47. 

Moreover, mothers, coming in to eat with their children, are doing so with pistols on their hip

Boy, I bet David Frum would soil himself if he found out

 

God bless Oklahoma!

No, not the Sooners, the state of Oklahoma, for recognizing the God-given right to carry a firearm!

Gov. Mary Fallin signed into law Tuesday a measure that allows Oklahomans to openly carry handguns.

The measure, Senate Bill 1733, allows those who are licensed to carry a firearm under the Oklahoma Self Defense Act a choice: to openly carry a weapon or conceal it.

It also allows a property owner to openly carry a handgun on his or her land. No concealed carry permit would be required.

To receive a license under the Oklahoma Self Defense Act, applicants must take a firearms safety and training course and submit to a background check by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation. Those convicted of felonies and certain misdemeanors may not receive a handgun license.

The measure takes effect Nov. 1.

Oh, the gun grabbers will whine about this, they hate the right for citizens to be armed, and the right to self-defense which is so closely tied to it!
