12 posts in this topic

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...

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!

      Was at Carnilian a few days ago....looked like the front end of a truck went through just in front of the access.
