Sweet, my wife has the same pistol/canon. She loves shooting it, I don't care for it that much. It'll definitely turn heads at the range.

While I understand the disapproval of the language, guns are absolutely "toys" in the American Culture. People enjoy shooting, and some people do so competitively. His new gun is just as much a "toy" as a new side by side, or 500 horsepower project car. Any of these "toys" can kill if used improperly.

The only difference is that this "toy" is designed to be deadly.

So while I can appreciate the grumbles about the language, I can look past it and given Semper's background and training, I am comfortable saying he is likely a responsible gun owner.

I don't know much about guns, but that thing looks like a mini cannon. I'd like to shoot stuff with it.

Can someone tell me what kind of gun it is?

Look to me it is a toy. I take it to the range and I play responsibly with it. If you don't like the context of me calling my gun a toy, sorry. People are so easily offended.

It is a Smith and Wesson 500 with a 4" barrel. I see no practical use for it as in hunting, maybe defensive if you encounter a bear but that is it. It makes a big bang and it blows up what it hits.
