    Nice 'power' buy...

    That's a heck of a NY reload......but I'd feel safe standing next to you in the woods during a bear attack.

    With all the weight he will be carrying, you could out run him in dress shoes.

    I got to ask why. Not that it really matters why, but why do you need/want a 2nd 454? Just curious.

    Yeah, I do. Its just that the 454 seems like such an obscure niche type of gun, I can't imagine needing or wanting more than one myself.
    Don't get me wrong, I'm not criticizing you in anyway. If you want ten of them, I hope you get twelve of 'em. I was just curious as to why. Seems like your answer is somewhere along the lines of "Because I can" or "Because I want another" which are perfectly good answers to me.

    IeonMike, you can get a Galso Miami classic and purchase a second holster for it and have a double rig, just a thought. Black Hills Leather makes a double shoulder holster, as does Andrews Custom Leather.

    yeah, that's right
    the punch line to the joke is
    "I don't have to out run the bear, I just have to out run you......."

    Cool, can I shoot it the next time you come to the range?

    PLEASE!!

    I understand fully! When I retired in 2004 I bought a matched set of Ruger P90 semiauto handguns in .45. The grand scheme was to teach myself to shoot with both hands at the same time. The short story is that, while I can shoot right handed and almost as well left handed, if I try to shoot with both hands at the same time you could probably beat me up with a baseball bat while that effort is in process. Another grand scheme gone awry.
