Never owned the ruger. Had a taurus raging bull in 454 now have a freedom arms 83 in that chambering. Only way to carry it wo getting hurt is usually in a shoulder holster. Recoil isnt bad. What are you wanting to use it for?

I'm curious about using it for a carry gun. I've seen several reviews that say its a hell of a lot of fun to shoot. I've tried 357 and 44, didn't think either of those was too bad. Read and interesting article on here about ballistics from a morgue, it recommended the larger caliber stuff. Figure something that big, as long as you can manage a hit, NO ONE will want to play with you anymore.

It will knock pigs and deer over so ya itll kill a man very easily. You have to realize though that its a hell of a big revolver and is very hard to conceal. I carry mine on my right thigh kinda low down.

The Alaskan is 2.5 inch barrel. I assume you're speaking more towards the 6 inch judge.
