Hand Cannon by Dragonkitty13 Hand Cannon by Dragonkitty13
This is part of my collection.
It is a one of a kind single shot bolt action handgun. The rounds it takes are also custom made. It shoots a 460 case that has been necked out to hold 50 BMG heads. Currently I have six shells for it, I have to get with my loader and have more made.

To give you an idea, if you know anything about guns, the shells below from right to left are...
9mm,45,308, an the custom for the gun(yeah the big one)

This thing is the psychotic idea of my Dad. :crazy: Think of a guy that is a cross between Burt from the movie 'Tremors' an Tim Allen from 'Home Improvement' an you'll have something close to the way my Dad was.

He created this thing just because he could. Test firing was fun since he wasn't sure if it would blow up or not. Initially the recoil made it go from 3 to 12. After the barrel was ported Dad could hold it one handed an it only jumped 3 inches in recoil.

Unforunately I haven't found anywhere that will let me shoot the big bastard. On a side note, everyone that has seen this thing says 'hell no I won't shoot that thing'. I thought guys liked the more power thing. :? Am I just crazy for wanting to shoot it? Eh, I think it is genetic.

Well now, would you look at that, my hat is off to your fathers work. You can't go wrong with the Hornady A-MAXX, it's an excellent quality match bullet. I can appreciate the craftsmanship put into that pistol, I'd sure love to get some trigger time with something like that, thanks for sharing it.

Thank you very much. Many people didn't appreciate the creativity my Dad had. Eventually once things settle down here at the new house I hope to get some time to play with this beastie myself. :) Sometime I'll put up a pic of the 308, I call it 'Frankie' since it is a frankenstein thing.

When I get it back out of storage along with all my others I'll post pics. I really miss them.

Thanks. Dad was a bit of a nut case. :) I'm still trying to find somewhere that will let me shoot the damned thing! No one wants to be around when I do! They are all afraid of it!

The sad thing is that it is men. I thought it was a genetic testosterone thing that guys liked everything bigger an more powerful. :confused: Guess I was wrong. When I got it back from repairs I was walking round the house cuddling it to my chest saying how much I missed it. My bf was looking at me like I was nuts.

haha :XD: well from what I've gathered men do like everything bigger and powerful but usually they're also kinda wimpy in their own way :)
