Well, I'm finally getting to that age were I can finally buy a pistol (oh yeah, and drink!). I've been looking at various pistols, and the 460 has really caught my eye. My criteria for my first pistol is that I should be able to hunt with it. The 460 XVR is a fairly expensive pistol, looking at over a grand. But aside from the raw numbers that this cartridge puts out, the pistol can also chamber 45 LC and 45 Casul. So its got the 357 practicality appeal. My question is, how are the new Smith and Wesson's. 1,000 dollars is certainly not chump change, but if the pistol is quality, I have no qualms dropping that kind of coin (lord knows I've put down more on rifles before). Any thoughts and expierences are welcome. Oh, and just to tie this thread in to LRH, the 460, if sighted in a 200 yards, can be held on center of the target and hit near center with no hold over out to 250yrds. Thats quite a poke with a pistol.
