I do like my Ruger 454
My Dad has a Desert Eagle .50 and a Super Blackhawk .44 mag. I enjoy shooting the .50…occasionally. Not so much for the Ruger. It has the small wood grips and it’s rather unpleasant with magnum loads. LOL
Had to ditch the stock grips on the Ruger. Houge makes better grips for handling recoil.
Absolutely. He has the big rubber Hogue grip too. It certainly helps with recoil, but it doesn’t look as cool.
I was surprised that the article mentioned the Encore, or maybe I wasn’t.
Here’s my SSK Handcannon chambered in .375/06 JDJ a wildcat cartridge. It’ll launch a 300gr bullet @ 2200 fps. It’s designed to put a solid through 4’ of elephant skull; in one side, through the brain, and out the other side. Here it is next to a 1911. also the cartridge as compared to a .45ACP. Due to the expansion chamber and ports there is very little muzzle rise, the recoil (and lots of it) comes straight back.
Nice Kimber! @BrianK
Thanks. It’s actually a Kimber .22. But it’s the same size as a 1911 in .45ACP flavor. It’s what my hand grabbed for the picture when I took it years ago. I figured no one will ever know, now you do.
