Ahhhh 480 why do I love thee? Let me count the ways
1) its a big bore revolver (I cant explain it any better than that)
2) recoil from this gun is less than some 44s I've shot, which means I could shoot it all day
3) I don't black out for a minute when I see the price of store bought ammo. Its about a dollar a shot. Same as my 06.
4) I can pursue and kill anything in North America with this gun. I know there are "better" choices but I'm not going to debate that now. I can do it with the one I have.
5) Last but not least was the price. I got a really good deal on it.
