KitUp's headline for the new Smith & Wesson .460-caliber revolver is "Smith & Wesson Unveils Backpack Cannon." Judging by its size, it looks like a hand cannon to me, yes. Or like a power tool that can kill you.

"An ideal firearm for your backpack in the backcountry," they continue. And more: "revolvers have long been replaced by high-capacity semi-auto for self defense*, but they still make nice companions if you like camping where the critters are big enough to eat you."


But of course! They should make every boy and girl scout put one of these inside their backpacks, between the compass and the marshmallows bag.

* Emphasis for hilarity.
