Ok, I've decided I'm going to get a large bore, snubby revolver for my next hand gun. There are 4 candidates..... Taurus, RagingBull 454ss2m, 2 1/4 in .454 Cassull. http://www.taurususa.com/products/product-details.cfm?id=233&category=Revolver Ruger SRH Alaskan, 2 1/2 in .454 Cassull. http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=87515441#PIC S&W model 460es , 2 3/4 in .460 S&W Magnum. http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=87719282#PIC or the S&W model 500es, 2 3/4 in .500 Magnum. http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=87717055#PIC Each weapon is possible to find in the $700 to $800 dollar range. Pro's. Raging bull ---- It's compensated, and fires the 45 LC as well. Alaskan ---- It is readily available (Very easy to find), fires the 45 LC, holds 6 rounds and has the Hogue 'Tamer' grip, (designed special for this gun). Model 460es ---- It's easier to find than the Taurus, has high visibility sights, fires 3 seperate cartridges, (.460 Mag, 454 Cassul and 45LC), and it's action is one of the best around. Model 500es ---- It's easier to find than the Taurus, has high visibility sights, fires the 500 special as well, and has the same action as the 460es. (Plus I get to say I own the most powerful handgun on the planet, lol) Cons. Raging Bull ---- Very hard to find in the snub barrel, only holds 5 rounds and I'm not keen on the color of the grip. Alaskan ---- Not compensated 460es ---- Not compensated, stiffer recoil and only holds 5 rounds. 500es ---- Not compensated, stiffest recoil and only holds 5 rounds. Right now I'm leaning towards the S&W 460es, for sheer versitility... being able to fire 3 diferent cartridges just has all kinds of possibilities..... But I like the alaskan, with the extra round, and I would also like to say I own a 500 S&W Magnum....who wouldn't... What are your oppinions between these weapons?
