Bear traps were used for more than just bears,, especially many decades ago., It wouldn't surprise me to find one on display somewhere with a leg bone in it still. Accidental,, or on purpose,, those things are STOUT & will hurt a human.
Yep,, as Dick mentions,, a stabilizer for the Contender,, and yes,, I got one from him a few years ago. Off bags,,, they do help,, especially at longer ranges! Stability equals accuracy,, & Lord knows I need all the help I can get.
