Smith and Wesson 500 8 3/8" Reviews:
5 out of 5
Primary use: Hunting
"This is the finest firearm I have ever owned. I don't own many. I had to have one the first time I saw it up close. The factory trigger is awesome. It def. pushes back when you fire it. Have not shot it to much due to cost and recoil. I use padded shooting glove. I reload my own to save a couple of dollars. I load Sierra 350Gr. Hollow points. Would like to take a bear in the future."

"This is one of the funnest guns that I own. I have only had it about 6 months so I haven't shot it a whole lot, about 60 rounds probably because of the price of the ammunition. I am starting to reload them and that will bring the cost down. I was really surprised the first time I shot it, it did not kick up like I anticipated but it pushes back hard. It defenately gets everyones attention when you pop off that first round. The only problem that I have is I need to find a shooting glove as my middle finger rubs hard on the trigger guard everytime I shoot it. Also need to find a holster for it."
