    Smith & Wesson Unveils Backpack Cannon



    LAS VEGAS — Smith & Wesson on Monday touted its new .460-caliber revolver as an ideal firearm for your backpack in the backcountry.


    Officials with the Springfield, Mass.-based company let selected members of the media fire the Performance Center Model .460 at a range in Boulder City, Nev., as part of the opening day of the annual SHOT Show. The country’s largest gun show is taking place this week in Las Vegas and is expected to draw tends of thousands of attendees.
    Revolvers have long been replaced by high-capacity semi-auto for self defense, but they still make nice companions if you like camping where the critters are big enough to eat you.
    The five-shooter features a three-inch barrel, high-visibility sights and a synthetic stock with a shock absorber on the rear of the handle. Chambered for the massive .460 round, it packs a wallop. You can also shoot .454 Casull rounds, as well as .45 Long Colt ammo.
    “It’s a very comfortable gun to shoot,” Paul Pluff, the company’s director of marketing services, said in an interview with Military.com. “A great gun for a back-up gun in the backcountry or even for hunting if you’re going after some pigs or hogs or anything like that.”
    It’s a very nice gun but a bit pricey — $1,200. The company expects to market the revolver to civilians and law enforcement personnel.

    I have no practical use for one of those. That said, I really want one. Plus, chupacabra season is right around the corner. Always pays to be prepared.

    That's borderline insane. I wouldn't mind having one though, never know when a Grizzly might attack me on my way to the grocery store haha.

    Didn't they unveil the ultimate backpack revolver a few years ago? What happened to the 500 S&W?

    It would probably be nice to be able to shoot .45LC for practice though.
