The Holy Grail – A New Boomer from Ruger and Lipsey's

By: Michael Bane

I will be the first to tell you, big bore handguns are an acquired taste.

They do indeed buck and roar and do their best to put a hammer spur right between your eyes. Or, as Lee Martin, master gunsmith and the founder of the Single Action Forums where big bore aficionados hang out puts it: “Building carpal tunnel one round at a time.”

And yet there is something amazingly appealing about learning to shoot these brutes. That’s why I was so excited when my friends at Lipsey’s and Ruger teamed up to do what Ruger does best, shake up and reshape a market.

Meet the newest Ruger Super Blackhawk, 5-shot Bisley version available in both .454 Casull and .480 Ruger.

Editor’s Note: Be sure to watch “The Rise of Big Bore Hunting Handguns,” on “MidwayUSA Gun Stories” with Joe Mantegna on August 26 at 8PM ET, only on Outdoor Channel! Joe gets to light up the new Ruger .454 Blackhawk!

I can’t begin tell you just how cool the new Blackhawk boomers are. Up until this introduction, getting into big bores has been either a hard or expensive proposition, and in many cases both.
