What state? Indiana here. Apparently they are in demand. They run 900+ here. I can't find them anywhere.

I simply can't imagine shooting a a snubnose big magnum.

My Redhawk .44 IS 7 1/2. My Super Redhawk .454 is 10 inches.

I like for my gunpowder's energy to push the bullet, not to make a lot of wasted flash and bang.

Never quite got the point of big-bore snubbies. A 454 Redhawk snubby must be about as concealable as a football, and if you're not going to conceal it, why the short barrel? I don't get it.

I thought it was designed as a quick-draw, last-ditch, the-bear-is-already-eating-your-horse kinda thing?

Remember, the flash & bang isn't a waste if it scares the bear off your leg.
