Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan .454 Casull
In my stash of toys, the Ruger SRH Alaskan .454 Casull tends to make people back off without it even being pointed in their direction. I shoot a 362 grain hardcast wide ( .37 meplat ) flat-nose bullet out of it. And, when the 24 grains of W296 is touched off that little snub-nose gets a lot of respect at the range. See one (top) in this picture laying next to a .357 Magnum (bottom). The picture is from Jeff Quinn's review on his Gunblast website.
"My plea is that we stop seeking out the storm and enjoy more fully sunlight. I am suggesting that as we go through life we accentuate the positive. I am asking that we look a little deeper for the good, that we still our voices of insult and sarcasm, that we more generously compliment and endorse virtue and effort." Gordon B. Hinckley
