I received my 500 Magnum in great condition and in good time. Can't wait to take it to the gun range.

At the risk of sounding like every other review, I still must applaud Bud's for their service and communication skills. This is my third purchase with them but only the first using their layaway option. They stayed in constant communication with me and then delivered my firearm as soon as final payment was received. Now time for the handgun review: The first thing I noticed when I inspected the gun was that it was filthy dirty. Nothing to keep me from not accepting it, but it almost looked used. This I believe was due to the factory test firing. However, what better way to bond with your new baby then to spend some quality time cleaning it. After a thourogh scrubbing, I polished the firearm to an almost chrome finish. (The satin finish also contributed to the dingy look.). After I made her pretty it was off to the range. And yes, she is a BEAST! I used Hornandy 300gr and 350gr rounds. Yes it hurt but no, it didn't send the firearm over my head. I will track down some 500gr and 600gr rounds and see what those do. The firearm itself is completely useless!!! The case it comes in is similar to the size of carry on luggage and the gun itself barely fits in my range bag. Furthermore, every trigger pull is the price of a Big Mac and unless you think dinasours are going to re-inhabit the earth there is no reason to buy this. In summary, BUY THIS GUN. If you YouTube videos of people firing this beast you will find one thing in common, they all giggle like little school girls immediately after the round goes off. So much fun in a sadistic way. You will read reviews from self proclaimed gun experts dogging this gun out for technical reasons and labeling anyone who buys it as an idiot. BTW: these people are the same ones at the range begging me to let them fire it. Hmmmmm.........

Shot it for the first time tonight and it was incredible. Very accurate and one hell of a kick. Overall great gun.

I've had this firearm since December 27th, 2011 but have only been able to use it for about one and a half months due to military training. Since then I've run a few 20 round boxes of 350gr Hornady ammo through it which runs for $3.00 a round. This is an amazing piece of engineering. It is accurate right out of the box. I enjoy long range handgunning so I usually use it from 25 yards and beyond (no scope). Firing the gun in and of itself is an experience. The weight of it in your hand is incredible. The muzzle flash you can see in broad daylight, the thunderous boom that overwhelms all the sounds around you, the pressure wave hitting you square in the face while the grips punch the butt of your palm and the strong smell of powder immediately afterwards. The only real downside I can think of is that there are now small singe marks on the outside edges of the cylinder from the blast. Easy for me to overlook though. The gun itself while a monster, is a beauty to behold. The trigger pull is fairly heavy, but if you cock the hammer first, you barely have to touch the trigger for it to go off (It has surprised me a couple times). Despite the weight, I find the sights easy to line up and maintain for a clean shot. I have a grin on my face unmatched the whole time I'm firing this at the range. Definitely a must have for the collection.

you want a bad-ass gun, this in it, being the biggest production revolver ever made. ammo may not be cheap, but it packs one hell of a punch. recoil is manageable if have larger hands. i put 20 rounds through this guns in 5 minutes, and hands didn't like it that much, but very doable. i would recommend only doing about 5 rounds a day through this powerful revolver, unless you want to feel like you have arthritis in your hand the next couple of days. stainless steel frame to, cant beat it there either. just the size of the big alone, is very intimidating to anyone that is on the wrong end of it.

This makes my 629 Classic in .44 Mag look like a pellet pistol. Wear foam ear plugs AND a set of muffs. This is one bad hombre and IS the most powerful handgun in the world. Do you feel lucky? Well do ya punk?
