I see you get an even bigger one on your side of the pond now Bobby , it's called a Vortec . Also in .50 but can use more powder than the Buckhunter. Now that baby will kick ass !

Quigs he'll just have to hang on when firing that thing and then watch to see where the muzzle will end up in order to keep from getting hit on the head.....
