Roland and I are back at the range again tonight shooting the impressive Smith and Wesson 460v, we were shooting 460 magnum Hornady 200 grain ftx, bullets. The fireballs on this things was impressive! I only wish I had a camera that could truly do slow speed photography, catching the muzzle blast coming off of this would be spectacular. 

You may have noticed with the muzzle energy, we were making it snow dust in the range and I wish I had taken a picture of it, but in the lounge which is directly behind us, the felt recoil knocked a couple of pictures off the wall. I really need a SW 460v, I wonder if Roland would ever take me up on the offer of $500 for the gun, it is used after all *LOL*

Tonight I'm shooting my Ruger GP100, I'm shooting both 38 Special +P (higher pressure rounds) as well as 357 Magnum loads. I tried to mix it up a bit tonight in terms of the loads that I shoot, 3x 38's followed by 3x 357's so that way you can hopefully see / hear the difference between the 38 specials and the 357 magnum. You can definitely hear the 357's over the 38's there a bit louder and kick just a hair more. Like some of my past videos, I've slowed down the shoots a bit, so that hopefully you can see the fireballs coming off the side of the frame (gases escaping between the cylinder and the forcing cone). I really love shooting my Ruger GP100, it's such a fun gun to plink with. 

Taking a look at my Ruger GP100 tonight, my GP100 was the second revolver that I purchased. I bought it from Elwood Epps in Orillia. I had been eyeing one for the longest time, and after a conversation with my buddy Mike, it was one of those, "well if you buy one, I'll buy one too". So the order was placed, and it took a couple of days to get to the paper work processed, after a night shift, we made the run up to Epps to pick up our revolvers. 

The Ruger GP100, comes in two different options, both Stainless steel and Blued, features a well machined solid frame, that's over engineered to take a pounding and keep on ticking. Mine features a 6" barrel, you can also purchase ones in Canada with a shorter barrel, I've seen ones with 4.2" barrels. 

There was a few things I wasn't the happiest about after getting it home, I noticed a few less then stellar tooling markets / finish imperfections around the crane on the revolver, but other then that, I've been very happy with my purchase. I'm at an unknown round count through it, and it's easily chewed through any 38 Special or 357 magnum loads that I've put into it and held up very well. New shooters that I bring to the range always get a blast out of shooting it. 

Roland and I are down at Silverdale today trying out his Smith and Wesson 460v outdoors. The one noticeable thing about this pistols is indoors you can really feel the reverberations of this pistol in a confined space, outdoors even with the more potent Hornady Dangerous game loads, it's a lot more pleasant to shoot. As you can see it's snowing outside and we being the good range members we are, we used the SW 460 to help clear the snow off the top off the roof and to plow snow down the range. 

We were trying to catch some of the nice fire balls this thing is capable of generating on camera, in the scenes where we caught a good one, I slowed down the video. This gun is a beast to shoot! I really need to add one to my collection ASAP!

Yet again, I was surprised today by a new firearm that Roland decided to bring out to the range. Today he decided to show off his latest hand canon, the SW460v, this thing is a beast! The revolver featuring a 5" barrel, compenstated, shoots the 460 SW Magnum load, 454 Casull, and 45 Long Colt, so there is some cheaper plinking options when you go to the range, or you're not looking to break your wrist shooting this thing. 

I was also having a bit of fun with today's video, I just use Youtubes editor when uploading content and today for a couple of the shots, I tried slowing down the frames so you can see the recoil of the shoots and maybe catch a couple of the muzzles flashes and gases escaping from between the cylinder and forcing cone.
