    Due to the nature of the many grizzley bear attacks us Ohio fishermen have been recceiving as of late, I was looking to purchase the Ruger Alaskan in .454. Well, I took it a step farther.

    I am now the proud new owner (soon to be divorced.... if the wife finds out) of a S&W .460 ES. This mamouth mother load can shoot .45 LC, .454 as well as .460 ammo.

    To be honest, I litterally could not pass this deal up. I got it for nearly $900 off of the normal price.

    Heck I don't think I would be able to shoot it at a bear if i had too. All I would be thinking is this mother is going to be loud. (time out bear let me get the ear plugs)

    A gun and a knife, now you can shoot the bear and cut it up and have bear meat for dinner too.
    That is one fine weapon Bryan.

    :dribble:Sweet. The case & accessories look great too. Been wanting an Alaskan myself, but in 44. Think that's about as much as I can handle.

    I like the bright colored grips. It will make it easy to spot in bear scat.

    I dont know how the snub nose version shoots,but I have shot the 8 inch barrel version and it is not that bad. The 8 inch barrel has a big composator on it that helps alot. I just got one and have mounted a nikon scope on it. I plan on deer hunting with it.

    Nice piece mellon.

    that's a nice gun there brian! i know it's fun to look at, but how does it shoot???? i don't think muzzle blast or recoil play much of a part when your life is on the line. just look how nonexistent recoil is when taking a shot at a running deer. on the flip side, YOU'RE GOING TO FEEL EVERY BIT OF IT DURING TARGET PRACTICE! :smile2:
    seriously though, awesome looking weapon, and i love the case and 'emergency blanket'!!!
