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...

      I would suggest concentrating on panfish this spring from a boat or shore. Your chances of success vs trout would be astronomical! These are hard earned life experiences. Learn how to fly cast. period. Trying to learn fly fishing on  trout stream will be a lesson in frustration as you will be tangled in more trees than the stream. Fly fishing from a boat or shore allows you to figure out all of the nuances of the sport before moving on to a tree canopy!     Good luck on your journey!

      Wow that stinks. I see Springsteel put up a pic in fb of 27 lb pike caught out there yesterday somewhere. Are big suckers easy to find in town right now?

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
