I got a Taurus 4510 to replace the Redhawk I used to bring with me when I was camping. It is smaller and the shot shells make it more useful than the .44s in the Redhawk for anything except Bear, and I never met a Bear in the woods who wanted any part of me. Snakes have, and for them the Taurus is more useful. My .45 LC loads are almost as hot as .44s anyway. But the primary beneficiary of the Taurus have been snakes, and I can assure all that a .410 birdshot is ten times better against serpents than any .44 Magnum.
