    The manual behind it looks like it may say ruger Redhawk Alaskan.

    Indeed! Love the looks of a super large frame,stout snubby revolver. That fits the bill perfectly!

    Just Picked up a SR1911 for myself this Christmas season,I'm thinking something like that is in order next,after a 22/45 lite.

    Awesome buy though.

    Thank you folks for all the kind words. It is an Alaskan in 44 mag. I have been saying for a while if I ran across one I would bring it home. Last weekend I ran across 3 and this weekend one came home with me. Since my XDS is still at SA I was looking for something a little smaller than a full size 1911 to carry. I think I failed in that regard but oh well........:D

    Me!!!! Ya I know I am a selfish b-----d....:D

    Thank you!!!
    CCW is the goal. Have a holster coming from Simply Rugged Holster.3 more speed loaders, 2 pouches and a Hi Viz front site from Midway. Shot 2 boxes of shells thru it Christmas day and was amazed. Thought there would have been more recoil. The only issue I found was the front site was hard to acquire at times.

    You and me both. There has been at least one in my stable since I was 18.:)

    Thank all of you and Happy New Year!!!!!!!

    The Ruger Alaskan looks like a weapon I aught to own one day. I have a .44Mag but don't shoot it much...perhaps I need another! Nice buy Rockratt...enjoy!

    I agree about the Alaskan. I am actually looking to buy a 4.2 inch ruger .357 gp 100 stainless but I haven't found one in my price range yet

    I have been looking at them as well. But to let you in on a little secret I have never owned a 357. I have shot them and have had them on the list but for some reason I end up with something else. I know shame on me!!!!!
