To my bafflement though there has been a curious lack of moderate length barreled double action revolvers in the caliber. Sure there is the S&W Governor and Taurus Judge that can fire Colts along with 410 shotgun shells, and while superb guns, are a bit bulky. The cylinders are much longer and make them much larger in order to accommodate the longer shotgun shells. There's the S&W Model 25, but very few have the practical four inch barrel, instead opting for the Harry Callahan appearance with a seven inch barrel. A bit difficult to fit in a holster on your hip.
But low and behold, Ruger has at last answered my many prayers and delivered this glorious creation to the realm of mortals!

I hope dearly to own one of these myself someday! It's like it was made for me! :D
