IMHO, the gun shouldn't move 'in' the hand but rather the hand should move 'with' the gun. Recoil should be absorbed through the wrists, elbows and shoulders. Not by the sixgun sliding through your grasp.


We find common ground. I think I love you.

Everything after this was, "Wa, Wa.............Wa, Wa,.............Wa, Wa."

Whitworth, i'm not denouncing the Bisley. i just dont like the way it handles/feels in my hand. love the looks though especially Colts. as for shooting the 475 and 500, no thank you. after shooting a F.A. 454 a dozen times or so i learned the the 44 mag. was my threshold. thats fine the 44 mag.dose all i need doing. Hats off to you guys with the big boomers. i'll stay in the kiddy pool. so a 480 for me would have to be in the S.R.H.

Of course i'm dumber than a bag of cat food. if someone handed me a handgun and said do you want to shoot this .505 moose masher? I'd smile and go SURE WOULD!

I had a 45 Colt SBH Bisley Hunter. I never did warm up to it either. I have always shot double action revolvers.
I hunt from a tree stand with a 9.5 SRH in 480.
I also have a 480 Alaskan. The Alaskan packs just fine in a Rocky Hill Pancake. It makes a great bumming around revolver. I just took it off this evening when I got home. It is loaded with 3 shot shells and 3 of my 375's with 10 grains of Unique under them.

Now if I were going to seriously hunt deer or larger game with the revolver, and also use it for woods protection, I believe the 5" barrel would be a winning combination. The Alaskan would be way to hard to shoot at distance with open sights. A 7.5 or 9.5 inch Super RedHawk would be a little much in a belt holster for non-hunting woods carry. The 5 Inch 480 would be a great compromise between Packability, and Shootability.
Just My Two Cents.
