giant gun/handcannon thread. go crazy.
here it is
get it? its literally a hand cannon? 3/3
You got it fella. My desk is all fucked up.
That's an open question. For hand cannon territory, I'd probably go with one of the long barreled S&W Model 627.
That being said, the range of .357 revolvers is huge, from five shot snub guns to mid sized six shooters and eight shot large frame revolvers.
If you're going for a new gun, something from Ruger, S&W or Dan Wesson are your best bet.
Ruger would be the GP100 or even the 4" SP101.
S&W has small, medium and large frame guns.
Dan Wesson makes a medium frame revolver, but it is unique in that you can swap barrels and have one gun with several barrel lengths.
And if you want to go old school, Ruger makes the single action Blackhawk and Vaquero.
I've heard incredible things about the Blackhawks but if I get one I would most likely get a redhawk for the double action.
I would say a S&W 586 personally, looks like this: >>28636971
Also comes in a 6inch barrel for a new one as well, can find old ones up too 8 in.
A Smith and Wesson model 27 is great as well, basically a Model 29 but in .357 and not .44 magnum. A little most costly(for a new classic but haven't looked at the used market for one)
There are .45 Colt conversion cylinders for the Walker.
The last functional firearm on the face of the planet will be a .357 Blackhawk. The .45 Colt and .44 Magnum guns are famous for being able to fire hot loads that would grenade a lesser gun.
Mate, you should take lessons from Brazil.
Bioshock Infinite's handcannon drives me up the damned walls.
I mean, look at the cylinder. It was obviously patterned after some sort of black-powder weapon (To me, it looks like the love child of a colt 1845 and 1858--which, to be truthful, would probably be absolute sex). Yet, it fires cartridge ammo. I guess you could say it's just a conversion cylinder, but then why the hell do the nipple-notches (which would be replaced by firing pins) not match up with the cartridges in any way, shape, or form?(Refer to the video of the reload animations below to see what I'm talking about.) It's like they literally just added structural instabilities in order to make it look more like a black-powder revolver. Finally, it's chambered in something that at LEAST is greater than .45 with fairly long casings, so there's no way it would function as a top-break revolver for long.
I think they should've made it a Colt 1858--There were plenty of those floating around, and it they could make the reload animation a high-speed low drag quick-cylinder change. It would've been absolutely arousing, while still being a functional weapon.
No, they are my paralyzer bullets.
Forreal though, they are incendiary .357 Fireball rounds from Clarke Custom Cartridges. Sadly haven't had the opportunity to test them out though.
I'm really not knowledgeable about revolvers post 1940s. Is there a revolver like the Ruger Vaquero that fires 45 acp but side ejects and does not use moon clips? Or top breaks but is safe instead of a modified Webley.
I would assume for the same reason the old handgonnes were made like that: So that that your hand won't be close to the barrel if it kabooms.
I like to consider this a "do it all" sidearm.
Anyone who has messed with custom shells knows the fun that this could be. How its military utility would be is questionable, but
>Any shell length due to break action
>6 inch aluminum shells filled with homemade napalm
>Room clearance made easy
There are Blackhawk and Vaquero convertibles that come with both .45 Colt and .45acp cylinders and there are distributor exclusive .45acp Vaqueros.
