Andy Cannon was from Laconia New Hampshire did a lot of 45 ACP work there. He shot competitively in the Belknap Gun Club out on 107.
Moved to Montana and I lost track of him.

That has to be one of the ugliest firearms I've ever seen.

Can’t say ugly but just needs something at the bottom of the barrel and frame.

I don't think people realize how innovative this was at the time. The .454 was a brand new cartridge and it was still 65,000psi, not the watered down 50,000psi it is today. The push for cartridges more powerful than the .44Mag was really just beginning. The big compensator and under-barrel weight were intended to combat the as of yet unheard-of recoil. This was a heavy duty critter defense tool made 20yrs before Ruger made the Alaskan. Judging history by modern standards is like thinking the chariot was silly because it's not a Camry. Those "quaint" relics from the past are what made the world we live in today.

That's a cool Redhawk 454 Casull.

I hate to bring an old thread back to life, but I’ve not really visited this forum much over the past couple of years. I was disappointed to see how slow the Ruger Revolvers and The Gallery subforums have become. What happened?

I think when you consider the purpose of the weight under the barrel making less flip with the .454, it becomes a little easier on the eyes. At least for me.

I live in Arizona so what do I know about what a fisherman needs ?

But apparently sometimes fish need a knock on the head. This gun would do that.

Actually I like it,,,,, I have seen way bigger and klunkier PPC guns in much less capable calibers.
Cool piece of evolution.

Things change, people come and go. Interests change too. I too think it is not aesthetically pleasing to look at, but when it is needed to be fired rapidly and accurately, that added weight will be wonderful! 8)
