Magnum Research BFR .45-70 Government

I gotta say, looking back at this purchase a few months ago, this is one of the stupidest guns I ever spent money on.  It looked cool.  Bigger is better, right?  I never realized ammunition would be so expensive.  That's the real problem with this.  It's otherwise a nice gun.  Here are some 'groups' of 20 Remington greenbox rounds that I shot at Red's Indoor Range.  It says fifty yards, but I was probably lying to myself and it was more closer to 35-40 yards.  My hand was getting tired holding it up and I was flinching when shooting.  I'm a horrible shooter to top it all, so this isn't even half the guns full potential.
