    At the expense of getting political, I wanted to say that after the 7 business days the store MAY (completely allowed by law) release the gun. They also should be calling MSP at that point and following up. If they aren't you may consider a new shop.

    I was all set on getting a 4" .357 GP100 for home and woods defense until I discovered the Super Redhawk Alaskan. Heavier than the 4" GP100 but a 2 1/2" barrel of .44 mag or .454 cas. The weight makes the recoil look somewhat manageable, especially the .44. The main drawback I see to that gun is the 3 foot fireball it throws out the short barrel. I don't want that if I'm in a synthetic sleeping bag inside a nylon tent.

    SBH in 44 mag is where its at. Once I added the Hogue grips I fell in love. One of the best revolvers on the planet, and certainly the best single action. You made a great choice.

    I have never had a problem with the recoil from it however.

    both of my wrists have been broken (motorcycle wreak around age 14 - AL allows small motorcycles to be ridden at age 14, or they did way back then, have no idea if they still do so.)

    I have fired everykind of handgun up to things like 454 causal / 460 ruger and a few shots from a 500 S&W. None did a break , but once I get over .44mag, I can sure tell the recoil is there .

    That's interesting. I've never thought recoil from a .44 mag was too bad. My brother in law has a S&W .500 and it's interesting to shoot. Supposedly a 4" barrel, but it sure looks shorter.

    Congrats friend you bought a fine weapon. I've been looking for another 44 myself I think I'm going to go double action this time. I see you have to feed a45-70 , I have some empty brass and a set of dies I believe that I would be willing to possibly sell. I mace even have some loose bullets. Just let me know if interested.

    I have a .357 with the 7.5 in barrel. It's probably my best shooting pistol. Paid $250 for it at a gun show in Dallas 7-8 years ago.

    I have a Ruger Bisley Hunter 7.5" in 44mag that has had some fine tuning by Clements and it is my go to gun for deer, it has a 2X Burris on it and I hand load with 295gr cast hollowpoint bullets. This set up work great for me and have taken several deer out to 125+yds with a rest. You will engoy the Ruger.

    Interesting, I have the same gun although it's blued. I prefer the factory grips, but to each their own. Keep in mind, the factory grips are designed to let the gun rotate in your hand. It puts the trigger where it need to be for a fast one-handed re-cocking. Supposedly, it was designed that way so that if you were shooting from a horse, you didn't need 2 hands to cock for the next shot - you could keep your other hand on the reins of the horse.

    Could be legend, but Sam Colt was such a genius, I wouldn't doubt for a minute that he actually thought that one through.

    Congrats on your purchase!
