Thanks! They do have some kick to them, not too bad though. I would say a short barrel .44 mag would be camparable to one of the longer barreled .454's. The Alaskan is comparable to a 8 3/8" S&W 500 mag in regards to recoil.

I like those too. In fact the same store had a Super Blackhawk with a 10.5" barrel. Talk about a big ole hogleg. The only have a Blackhawk in .45 Colt/.45 ACP for now. I've been looking for a Bisley in either .44 magnum, .44 Spl or .45 Colt. Every time Berto posts a picture of his Bisley I just drool.

My job can be stressful at times. Nothing relieves that better than taking out a big gun.
