I wonder if the 500 Smith will be like the Model 29, 44 mag after the Dirty Harry movies came out?? Everybody had to have one and they sold like hot cakes. But in the months following, they started appearing in gun and pawn shops. They were too much gun for beginner hand gun shooters. I handle the 29 fine but I thought it best to pass on the 500 and 460 Smiths when they came out. I wanted to preserve what hearing I had left and I guessed what they would do to my arthritis.I bet that hand loaders could load them to shoot comfortable though.
