As per usual, Buds quick shipping was demonstrated again with this purchase. Add free shipping, and a very reasonable lay-away policy, and anyone can understand why this on-line gun dealer is so successful. On to the six shot Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan in .454 Casull. This revolver is an imposing piece of stainless steel. It has a distinct family resemblance (and heft) to Ruger\'s Redhawks with 2.75\" barrels in .41 magnum, and .44 magnum. This is a \"snubbie\" with a 2.5\" barrel. It comes with a large rubber grip with finger grooves, and a strip of shock absorbent foam that sits in the inside of the grip adjacent to the web of the shooter\'s hand. It has a very smooth double action trigger, and appropriately light single action. The rear sight is adjustable for elevation and windage. The front sight is a blade. If you are going to retain it, the blade should be painted red or another bright color. A change out to a tritium or some other type of sight is possible since the blade is pinned into the body of the revolver. This revolver will shoot .45 Colt as well as .454 Casull rounds. The latter is powerful and will cause heavy recoil. If you think you are going to go to the range and shoot a box or three of these cartridges, think again. Recoil as a cumulative effect, and you will definitely feel the impact. On the other hand, shooting Cowboy Action .45s seem like firing a .22. It is also an accurate shooter. The Ruger Alaskan will hit where you aim it. I would not characterize this as a concealed carry option, though it can be used in that capacity. I replaced the rubber grip with a wooden Hogue grip. This makes the revolver easier to draw from a concealed position (I use the Urban Carry G1 IWB holster). It is 2.5 pounds, so you definitely know you are carrying a brick. But it\'s well balanced. For concealed carry, I use Buffalo Bore JHP Heavy .45s. These 260 grain projectiles have a muzzle velocity of 1,450 feet per second (though less with a 2.5\" barrel) with over 1,200 pounds of energy. They kick, but not as badly as .454 Casull rounds. This is a typical Ruger product, built like a brick and will last longer than you and several future generations. It\'s a heavy, brutish revolver, and lacks the elegance of Smith & Wesson revolvers. But it is effective and will make a good addition to any revolver collection.

Very nicely made, heavy caliber hunting revolver. It kicks like crazy but it's also crazy fun to shoot. Excellent customer service from Buds as usual.

Enjoyed having the layaway option from Buds as well as the cash discount price that was lower than most others. Gun arrived at local FFL fast after payments were complete and am totally satisfied with the overall customer service from Buds. Will use Buds again for my next purchase. As for the pistol, If you are in the fence about buying this one, go ahead and get it. Dual use as it fires 45 LC and 454 ammo. The weight on this pistol makes shooting 45 LC easy and is welcome with the 454.

Performs as well as I thought - this is another fine handgun from Ruger and it does not disappoint at the range. As usual Bud's delivered,the best price ($100 cheaper than anywhere else), and fast with no hassle, I will always buy from Bud's.

This is a gun I will never get rid of. Fun to shoot. I’m a big guy and this puppy can still make your hand sore. I know if I am carrying this anywhere that if anything on this continent comes at me I can take it down. Have shot all kinds of ammo up to Buffalo bore ammo and this gun shoots everything great. Great choice for anyone looking for the most powerful snub nose on the planet. Do yourself a favor and buy one. Everyone loves shooting this gun. And when I mention to someone in a gun store I own one they always say they are hard to come by. Do yourself a favor and buy this. Nobody could regret owning one of these. I carry mine in a diamond d chest holster rig or on my belt with a simply rugged sourdough pancake holster. Great sidearm for anyone who spends time in the woods.
