I don't have one, but

they are amazing. The engineering that has gone into them is astounding. They made the inderside of the top strap slippery so the abrasive flash coming from the cylinder gap doesn't erode it. That detail. And I don't know how many handheld weapons employ gain-twist rifling, but it can't be very many. I know the sixteen-inch guns on battleships did. I'd love to fire one. You should come to AZ so I can shoot yours. Hmm, probably not very feasible, huh? Oh well. Congratulations. I would rather have one of those than the 500 S&W.
