About 10 years ago my brother purchased a Taurus Raging Bull in .454 Casull from an estate. He hasn't been able to license it (in our laws you need a "need" for every firearm) and you can only take them home with a license (Or a temporary storage permit if you've applied for the license)

The other day the shop phoned him and said come get your damn gun or we selling it.

He still can't prove a need, and is a little busy with his PhD, so I said I'll take it.




My new toy, for target shooting :) Ammo will set me back $2.50 a round! :)

Nice! I thought 44mag was overkill! What's that weird button in front of the cylinder?

That is the extra cylinder lock. The recoil is too potent for the standard linear locking system, and it can unlock under recoil.

That bit prevents it opening.

Yup. Honestly I don't think Elephants are much of an issue, but I do want to get some monolithic solids (machine turn some brass heads?) for the rogue T-72's.

This will mainly be a paper puncher but it is also destined to be a Warthog whacker.

He lives in S. Africa. Just walking down the streets in certain areas is enough of a reason for that hand-cannon.

It's on record as being a target pistol. The "sport" I'm registered to shoot in does 10m, own time, 5 round bullseye targets.

I'm either gonna download some .454 brass or some .45Colt brass to target pistol levels and do that with it.

The law also says you can use any legally licensed firearm for any legal purpose, so yes, I could CCW it if I wanted to. It will also be used for hunting, mainly Warthog.

Should be fun for hogs.

Taurus is wholly underrated in my opinion. They make good pistols at a fair price. Raging Bulls are very artistic to me for some reason, like a Colt Python or a 686 Smith. Their own little sub genre of revolver style that nobody has topped.

I know.  I just like referencing Jumanji as often as possible.

Jumanji rocks.

In case you can't see from those pics, this is for some scale.


That's my 1911A1 Commander above...... this thing is a <KLR> cannon!
Hitting the range tomorrow with the Gopro and HD camcorder :)

Thanks! They're semi custom jobs. Made by a company called 5 Star (http://www.5starfirearms.com/) They make odd caliber speed loaders for odd weapons.

The most common guys don't make 5 shot speed loaders for .454, for example. These guys make everything you can think of. They are the only guys I found who make speed loaders for the Raging Bull series.

Machined from billet aluminium. I haven't used them yet, but in testing they seem to work. If you need more than 5 rounds of 300 grains at 1600fps then these are perfect for topping up with.

At $25 a pop they aren't throw away though :)
