    Question What About the Raging Bull?

    Ive been watching the revolver forum for awhile now and I noticed that I never see anything about the Taurus Raging Bull. This strikes me as odd as them seem to be quite popular. I for one am not a fan of taurus but im curious as to what you all think of them?

    I've not shot one but I have the raging 30 in 30 carbine and really want one but I'm not sure why It just is a blast to shoot and it's not a common revo to see out there I guess. They are built pretty well from what I've seen.

    None of the really big revolvers appeal to me. Even the big Dan Wesson, the Ruger Super Redhawk, and the S & W .500 are beyond my area of interest. Same as the Freedom Arms single actions.

    Why? Because they exceed the parameters of what I consider a good revolver. In my realm of interest, the Colt New Service or the N-Framed Smith & Wesson are the tops in size. What I look for in a revolver of interest is the ability to comfortably carry the gun all day in a belt holster, draw and fire if necessary, with one hand.

    Further, most of these guns are all stainless steel, while I prefer blue, or blue and color case finish. I have a deep and abiding interest in the .44 Magnum and .45 Colt cartridges, and guns chambered for them.

    I've shot many of these beasts, .454s, .444s, and .45-70s. Fun to shoot once in awhile, but a practical handgun, no way.

    Big, stainless steel, rubber grips, not interested. Blue steel, walnut or ivory, now you're talkin'.

    Blue steel and ivory grips combo looks undoubtedly classy.
    Best would be blue steel and unfluted cylinder.
    Now you making me droooollllllll

    I didn't notice where you live so I'm not sure what kind of creatures you plan to encounter. I live in interior Alaska. I have handled the .454 Casull and think it manages recoil very well. Cylinder lockup is excellent with the fore and aft catches. The grip is narrower than I prefer but the price of this pistol compared to S&W is outstanding! These guns are not garbage- there is definite quality in their manufacture. Taurus has much to offer in both revolvers and semi-autos in this new epoch of their existence. I will purchase this pistol in the .44 mag caliber someday...

    Thanks for the post.

    I almost bought a Raging Bull .454 a while back but ended up getting a S&W 500 instead. I was actually impressed with the fit and finish of the gun. Unlike most Tauri it seemed like a solid piece.
