I wouldn't pick a rotted tree!😃 I'm pretty sure that wasn't a full power load in that X-Frame, not with that little bit of recoil.

I did that with a .243 a long time ago.

I'm also not ashamed to say that when I shot CP's .500 for the first time I closed my eyes...

My rule was that I would keep shooting until I hit the gong; some of those guns I tried very hard to hit the gong with the 1st shot.

Two honest men.

Actually the 500 wasn't nearly as bad as the ultra lightweight .44 Mag. I had at the same time.

However neither of them became keepers

And it wasn't nearly as exciting as some of the stuff Tom has had me shoot at past Gunstocks.

I have no problems with a steel N frame .44 Mag, but that Ultra Light Weight .44 Mag? You could maybe talk me into shooting the .500...maybe. But no way would I touch the the light weight .44.

I have a Lew Horton Model 29 with finger groove wooden grips and a three inch barrel. With full house 44 mag loads it's kind of like laying your hand on an anvil and hitting it with a sledge hammer. It has become a 44 Special. I don't have the same problem with a regular four inch 29 with factory grips.
