    The question was not "Why?"

    It must have been "Why not?"

    The world's largest revolver, and it's functional. It weighs a mere 99 pounds (45kg) ... I wonder if El Paso Saddlery has a holster for it.

    According to an online article I found, 28MM (the picture is from Poland) and 2000 grains. Black powder.

    I'm just going to guess there won't be any belt holster available for it.

    If there is a holster for it, I don't want to offend the man who's big enough to wear it.

    Just sayin'

    If he was wearing it with the gun holstered you'd probably be able to outrun him. By the time he managed to draw and fire it might not even be the same day anymore.

    I wonder what the trigger pull weight is...

    Wow! Is it classified as field artillery? Ha! Ha!
    There isn't any problem that can't be handled thru the proper use of high explosives.

    Notice the frown on the guy? Wonder if it has something to do with 99lbs of steel pressing down in his lap?
