    You get one shot at a bear with that little revolver and you would more in likely be lunch. You better be real good in the heat of the moment. One shot drops are rare with a charging bear.

    Well my family really blew me away this morning. I was told by my son to go by my favorite gunstore and pick up some ammunition, which I thought was silly, especially since I re-load this caliber. I did as told and as soon as I walked in the clerk handed me the paperwork for a new gun. He just told me to fill it out and not question why. I was a little suspicious but did as told. When finished he handed me my present all nicely wrapped. They all waited while I opened it and then my wife and sons came from the back to see the expression on my face when I saw the Super Redhawk Alaskan in .44mag.

    I had been toying with having one of my .41mag Redhawks cut down for better carry and my sons were adamately against it. I think they want them when I have gone to that great gunrange in the sky. I had even thought of buying another Redhawk in .44mag to have modified since I really didnt like the Super Redhawk with that broomhandle barrel sticking out from the frame. I had, however looked at the Super Redhawk Alaskan, that to me, looks like a 2" SP-101 on steroid's. I liked the way it looked, much better than the regular Super Redhawk. Obviously my sons heard me.

    It is a handfull of heavy stainless steel, but I am used to carrying big guns. I am really looking forward to getting it to the range for a tryout with both 44 specials and 44 magnums.

    I'll get some pictures to post this weekend.

    Thanks Baldy,

    Not many bears here in Texas but the wild hogs, especially the Russian Boars, get darn big and really mean. I bowhunt and have been chased up many a tree by one, especially when heading to and from the stand, carrying that SBA on my hip will be very comforting. Since I handgun hunt as well, having the SBA as a backup/close in shot gun will be nuce as well. My scoped Redhawk is kind of awkward in those roles.

    Here is my B-Day present from the family.


    I found the holster in a used holster box there and paid a whopping $5 for it. Fits just fine for field carry.

    I'd love to read a range report. I've been thinking about one of these as well.

    I have the 454 and haven't had time to air it out, or let it air me out. I will take it out this weekend and repost results. Will be pushing 45LC and assorted Cor-Bon and Wichester 454 loads. I am a little concerned about felt recoil. Full report coming soon.

    I was standing next to a guy that was shooting the 454 at the range a couple weeks ago.

    I didn't realize what it was until it went off. I thought the roof was coming down for a second.

    I believe if you don't hit the Bear with it you just might scare it to death! Holy cow what a noise maker!

    I left soon after that, shooting my 22 just wasn't the same after being next to a cannon going off or maybe it was just gun envy, at any rate it was a memorable experience.

    Congrats on the gift and good shooting.
