Never shot an SW .500, but I have shot the similar (ok, bit less powerful) .454 Casull out of a Taurus Raging Bull....damn....large caliber handgun rounds are the ****.

The SW 500 is a hot load though, much more powerful than the .50 AE in the Desert Eagle. Plus it'* fired from a revolver, not a pistol which absorbs some of the kick.

Those Kimbers are ******* nice 45s though.

Last time my Bro, my Dad, and I went to the range they had a *&W guy in with a bunch of demonstrators. A group of younger guys with a couple girls along tried out a 6" barrel 500. The thing cylinder-fired on one of them. The round in the firing position actually set off another round in the 4 o'clock chamber. Dude damn near got his arm ripped off by the double recoil. Sorry, but I don't need that much power.
Besides, if I really want to punish myself, I'll fire fifty rounds through my Bro'* 7.62x54 Mosin-Nagant. Or drop a line to my buddy, and go fire one round through his .710 Express. Last time I fired a round with that damn thing, I was expecting a kick like a 12guage, and I ended up with a bruise from the top of my bicep damn near to my sternum.

I've got one for sale. Nickle finish, two magazines, reloading dies & brass. Fellow who owned gave it to me as the down payment on a CBR600F2 I was selling him.

I've shot it, and like the experience with the 500 *&W, it is painfull to shoot.
