Sometimes, bigger is better, and when it comes to knock-down power, that certainly applies in most hunting situations. I am referring to my newest large-caliber handgun – the Magnum Research BFR in .454 Casull.
Last year I wrote about another handgun in .454 Casull that was very nice – until I shot it in a stand without hearing protection. It was almost like someone stuck ice picks in my ears. The barrel was ported so that the sound was directed back toward me. It hurt my ears so much I almost dropped the gun out of the stand.
