I’m sure that a lot of you who were lucky enough to attend the SHOT Show have already seen this. For the rest of us:

Smith & Wesson has unveiled the monster of all monster handguns at the recent “Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show” in Las Vegas: A .460 caliber beast with a 3-inch barrel, high-visibility sights and a synthetic shock absorber on the handle — a likely necessary addition for so much firepower.

The manufacturing company is billing it as “great for a back-up gun, or for hunting,” and has dubbed it the “Backpack Cannon,” The Daily Mail reported.

It’s a very comfortable gun to shoot,” said Paul Pluff, a Smith & Wesson employee, in The Daily Mail.

And, he wouldn’t mislead you about how comfortable this gun is to shoot for a very good reason; he’s a Smith & Wesson employee.
