So a friend recently offered to sell me his limited edition Ruger, one of 500. The price is reasonable, but I had intentions of getting another revolver, namely the Dan Wesson. Both will be used as trail guns, with the 357 being loaded with backpacker rounds (hot loaded 200 grains). The issue I have is once I leave bear country, I won't have much use for 454 Casull, and the Dan Wesson is versatile in it's interchangeable barrels, so it still be reasonably used as a self defense gun. Any thoughts?
