"Alaska Backpacker Extreme"

I had to sell some ham radio equipment to afford this bugger.

 

.50 caliber revolver with some style! The CorBon 440 grain hardcast bullets are the size of an "AA" battery and with a velocity of over 1600FPS, It would be like getting hit with a bowling ball.

 

This is a special edition of the Smith&Wesson 500 with four inch barrel for my future backpacking trip in the Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness (in Montana).

 

Those are reflections inside the cylinder, not bullets.

 

Oh, Dont get the wrong idea...

I am at peace with bears...

... as long as they don't want a piece of me!
