This piece looks like a lot of fun. The only thing I didn't like about the video was the presenter compared the movement of the weapon under recoil to a plough handled single action. It's comparing apples and oranges, since the plough handled weapon is meant to roll back. That made me scowl...

Looks pretty fun. But one thing I am getting tired of is the use of cinder blocks in weapon demonstrations.

Yah, it looks cool when they blow apart but there is nothing more flimsy to small pieces of metal moving quickly than cinder block.

"This is a 460 Rowland, most powerful handgun in the world." just doesn't roll off the tongue very well.
I think I'd like the carbine and a stainless revolver.

460 rowland isn't anywhere near the most powerful handgun in the world, but there are some benefits to having a compact cartridge with the actual equivalent power of .44 magnum - primarily that you can fit it in a more compact gun - any compact is going to have to be ported and have high rate recoil springs to be of any practical use, and even then it's still going to be a handful to shoot.

I like the combo of having a round that can chamber in a conpact pistol and a carbine - and that looks like a pretty sweet carbine! ...but the mpa and/or big frame revolvers are too big to be practical to carry around discreetly IMO.

Kurt: I agree. I think it's a bit ridiculous to show shooting through concrete, but "show" is the key word there and drama markets to a large portion of the targeted group.

After buying the 200th gun I just gave up, just trying to save you people some money

Also - anyone who thinks that gun is even remotely useful is gay

You might as well also buy a Tec-9 and Davis .32 auto

I do believe I remember you stating that you owned a Tec-9.
