    Talk about a hand full !!

    In the I can't believe any company would find enough customers to make a profit on development of a handgun like this .... I mean seriously, in this video they show firing a 45-70 cartridge in a Derringer .. .. knowing the recoil of a full power 45-70 load, its insane .... for anyone who may not be familiar with a 45-70 cartridge, one is shown below next to a 44 Mag ....

    44 Mag - 240 gr Nosler JHP -23.8 gr W296 - LP primer ...

    45-70 - 300 gr Nosler Combined Technology Ballistic tip; - 51.5 gr IMR 4198 - LR primer

    the concept of firing a round out of a derringer that is "considered adequate for any North American big game within its range limitations, including the great bears" .... further, that "is very good for big-game hunting in brush or heavy timber where the range is usually short. The .45-70, when loaded with the proper bullets at appropriate velocities, has been used to hunt the African "big-six" " (quotes taken from link above) .... is alien to me
