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...

      Hi guys!  I used to be on this site long ago (participating mostly in the Mille Lacs forum), and the system wouldn't recognize my email.  So I created a new user name.   I'm planning to spend May and June in Ely.  My project is to autochart and create maps of a few small lakes I like off the Echo Trail, which I'll do via my Helix I have mounted on my bright orange fishing kayak.   I don't need any advice, as I pretty much know the area and what works to catch fish.  I'm just looking to possibly connect with other Ely anglers while I'm up there.  I'm tentatively planning on starting next week, assuming the "wintery mix" and wind in the forecast abates.  I'll be paddling around a bunch of different small lakes, going back and forth and back and forth, listening to either WELY or WEVE on my radio.  So if you see me, stop by and say hey.

      First off, welcome to the site. The Red River page gets kind of quiet but if you look back at previous posts there's a lot of good info. I've never fished much for cats but when I have I have always used cut up goldeye. I've also heard frogs are good but I have no first hand experience with that.    1- I feel that the fishery in Fargo is excellent and overlooked by a lot of people. The biggest eyes that I've caught have been on the river.  2,3- I normally use a chartreuse twister tail on the river with a jig head. The main reason for the color choice is because that is what I have an abundance of. I've caught them on white and yellow also. I don't use live bait at all unless the kids are along. They're not really able to do much pitch and retrieve yet and the minnows give them a little better chance I feel.  4- the only thing I've used is cut bait so I'd recommend finding some gold eyes or some suckers and chunk them up for bait.  5- last time I looked the ND NR license was something like $35.    My biggest tip for the river and pitching jigs would be that if you aren't getting snagged once in a while your jig is too light. Hung up too often and you are too heavy. I'm normally in the 1/8-1/4 ounce range. I have also caught a bunch of fish pitching cranks. I wasn't a believer until I watched Ed Carlson fish next to me and reel in fish while I kept on pitching my jig and not getting anything. Try something that's got a nice wide wobble. And if you are going to toss anything into the river be sure to remember that anything thats tied onto that line may not come back. I have donated lots of tackle to the old river gods over the years but I have also been rewarded with a lot of fish and some real dandies. These river fish have a lot of fight in them.     Remember that if you're keeping any walleyes or sauger on the red is that the limit is less than the MN and ND bag limit. I have seen more than one person ticketed at the north dam with their stringer of 4 eyes.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then caught 4 eyes and decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.
