Most modern revolvers have a transfer bar and won’t go off even if you drop it on the hammer. I don’t think anyone is actually saying don’t buy a Raging Bull, just helping set expectations. The reference to novelty gun is the incorporation of the .410 chamber.Wait how can they be accidentally touched off? Do you mean when people carry with all six chambers loaded? I have to admit I've never heard of one of them accidentally going off without human intent.
Hmmmm I guess I'll just have to get the Raging Bull & S333 Thunderstruck as nothing more than novelty guns then. I mean I've seen and researched those two the most out of any other guns but if they are that bad for SD then I'm really not sure I want them for that except for in the extreme case that I have no choice but use them for HD.
I've already looked the Blackhawk & Redhawk and would have to go with the Redhawk out of those two. Ive already got a Colt Single Action clone for OC and a M&P Bodyguard DAO for CC. So adding a revolver with the option of firing in both single & double action to my SD kit sounds like a much better option out of the three I've been thinking of.
A standard Raging Bull chambered in 454 Casull will shoot a 45 Colt just fine. The difference as I said was negligible. We are talking 2.5mm difference in case length. Both bullets are .452 despite the .454 name. It’s literally like shooting 44 special in a 44 mag or a 38 in a .357. The “issues” are chambering for .410. It changes the chamber substantially. All I’m saying is, I’d opt for 454 instead of 454/410, so you can still shoot 45 Colt and 454 casull without drawbacks.
