lets see some big bore wheelies used for defense......

i dont mean the monster wheelies used to shoot elephants and require another person to help you reholster it...

what i mean is a = or > .40 caliber plus wheely that is carried concealed for defense. be it a charter arms .40cal pitbull or a S&W 629 snubbie....

lots of folks like to carry revolvers for defensive purposes but id like to see and hear only from the folks who do so in the larger calibers. the beloved 642 need not apply.

I use a Super Redhawk Alaskan in .454 Casull in a Simply Rugged Sourdough Pancake holster. *It is no problem in jacket weather, but I would like to get some compact GP100 grips to make it a 4 seasons gun.

And a size comparison to a LCR.

hows that gun when point shooting one handed? must be a real brute.

the GP100 with a 3" bbl as a six shot .41mag, 10mm, or if possible a six shot .44spl would be a real haus, with punch, concealable size, and controlable recoil for one handed defensive shooting.

thanks for your posting!

here is my worn out pic which ive posted so many times im sure folks are tired of seeing it.

I haven't done any point shooting with it, but I carry .45 Colt in it because .454 poses a real risk of overpenetration. I could plink all day with .45, and the .454 isn't bad with the fat, squishy Hogue grip.

i thought thered be more taurus .44spl, .41mag, and .45colt showings. and while im at it, wheres all the charter arms bulldog .44spls?

most folks who own a S&W 5 shot .44spl 696 or what have you usually dont carry it regularly as its a cultish gun now-a-days and best used for picture taking show-n-tell, rarely a working gun.

I need to to get some pictures of it but, I carry my S&W .460, Performance Center with about a 4" barrel. This gun is concealable under a coat, I use it mainly for when I am in the woods or 4-wheeling.

The main "normal bore" I carry is a .45ACP. Big bore is .475+ in my mind. It is a 1937 Brazilian contract 1917 S&W I had my smithy cut down from 5 1/2" to 3 1/2".

I don't own one anymore but I think I'm going to be in the market again for either a 57 or 657 snub.
Loaded with .41 specials it makes a solid self defense gun.

I carried my 4" S&W Model 58 .41 Magnum on and off the clock during most of the period from 1985-1990. The only revolver I have actually fired in defense of myself and others was a 4" GP100, as I decided .357 Magnum was plenty enough for human adversaries by the 1990s, and N-frames are really too big for my hands if shooting DA.

I recently acquired a Ruger SRH Alaskan, and installed an original-style GP100 factory
grip. I have yet to carry it, as I am still deciding upon a holster maker, plus trying to recover from a budget situation. There is no hurry, as I do not walk among grizzly,
brown, or polar bears. I doubt I will shoot Casull ammo; most likely .45 Colt, unless I take a trip to Alaska.

No pics; I am still mostly an analog dinosaur.

They get used, mostly during hunting season. I always have a big bore in addition to my long gun.


I've actually killed a few things with my guns.
