Just curious on your reasoning is all.
slymule,
That is a really good question.
Some of my other SP's are in the 4-6 pound range (one or two may be lighter). When I had Kirby build this I had multiple purposes for it: LR pd shooting, LR benchrest matches, and hunting. Plus, I didn't know what to expect recoil wise, so add to that some fear, since I planned to use high magnification riflescopes from the get-go.
Really what I need to do next is have a lightweight barrel for hunting, especially in the hills.
As far as why not use a rifle, is simply I like the challenge of shooting a specialty handgun over a rifle. For me, it is fun.

My other "heavy handgun" was specifically set-up for shooting LG at 1K BR matches. It is in the 16 pound class, jewel trigger/no safety, McMillan rear-grip stock. i also use it for pd shooting as well and popping steel.

I figured it would be something along that line, after all thats the name of the game - whatever trips a guys trigger.

Curious about something else also. When you order a barrel that short, do they charge you less for it, and if not, do you just order it in what would be a more common rifle length so you could cut it in half and end up with two barrels for the price of one?

Depends on the barrel maker. You can usually get a barrel that will finish between 14-15 inches quite a bit cheaper. Typically, if you are going for a longer one then you are stuck paying a for a full blank.
Some barrel makers would prefer you not to take a full length blank and cut it in two, especially if they have lapped a choke into it. In other words, one may not shoot as good as the other.

Darryl told me a couple weeks ago that a 5/8's version of the big one would be available soon.
