A few years back the Thunderer five came out and I thought I had to have one. Then I saw and handled one at my local Gun show. Man! The thing weighed a ton. So I wound up with a S&W backpacker in 44 Mag. That became too heavy as well after a few all day jaunts in the hills. Finaly I wound up with a Glock 29. Best choice I've made. Pack it all day in a Fobus paddle, now problem. Stoked with 180 gr FMJ for critter control.
The thunderer Made a big splash in a couple of gun magazines then disappeared. I like your description of it. I would imagine you can get a pretty good buy on one but I feel you'll soon tire of it.
Then again if you need a weapon for close range you could just thro the thing at the problem.;f ;f ;f
