I've been carrying my 338 for bear defense on our family outings, but am thinking that a handgun that is handy is worth more in a pinch than something larger that isn't.
I'm leaning toward buying a 454 cal. when the tax refund comes. Am looking at a couple different pistols. The Freedom Arms revolver is really nice but out of my budget (okay, any new gun at this point is out of the budget, but so be it) I checked out the Ruger and Taurus at the gunstore, but haven't fired either.
Any experiences with those two guns? Are there any other revolvers chambered in the 454? I'd prefer something with a 6 to 8" barrel. Thanks!....Louis
