Only 1 month old, purchased for bear protection for an Alaskan fishing trip. Test fired 1 box of shells for accuracy and thats all. New condition with all orginal paperwork. Includes one box of shells $35 value, and holster $85 value. Paid $739 so with tax I have over $900 into this package. Will sell for $625 cash.

Accuracy depends mostly upon the shooter. This gun is designed for close range self defense from big critters and possibly the occasional bad guy. I can shoot six shots in the black from 50ft. but others who are not used to the power of this piece can't hit the paper.

What would it do to your target? If it was living, it would be dead. I shot my buddies steel swinging target and bent the crap out of it. Nice thing about this gun is that you can also shoot the soft shooting 45 Long Colt instead of the punishing 454 Casull.

I've had the fun experience of shooting a .454 Casull and really enjoyed it. Wish I was in the market but another handgun just isn't a priority for me right now. But the .454 is a good one grin.gif

Nice thing about this gun - you can shoot in front of your target, and the animal breaks it's neck falling in the hole...

Actually, very soft compared to when the hammer drops on a 454 - 360gr. bear load.

What's really fun is to hand it to your buddy loaded with five 45LC's and one 454 and watch him fill his shorts when he lights off the 454 round.

Yeah, I used to do the same with my 44Mag Redhawk.

Five 44 Cowboy specials and one 300Gr hand-loaded

magnum!! You didn't even need hearing protection

with those specials, then along comes the big

one= priceless!!! Wish I had an excuse to get

that bad boy. Looks like a blast!! Pun intended...

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.

      U-Haul in Hermatown will fill a tank and you pay for what they put in.
