The Raging Bull is a family of large caliber revolvers made by the well-known Brazilian gun company, Taurus. This revolver is available in .41/.44 magnum, as well as the ludicrously behemoth .454 Casull round.
I bought my Raging Bull at my favourite gun store here in Edmonton, Alberta, for a nifty price of $700 CDN. It is a .44 Magnum (Model 444), has a 6.5” barrel, and has the blued finish.
Upon setting your eyes upon this gun, you will immediately feel the urge to go punch a water buffalo straight between the eyes. The guns large, rectangular barrel and brutish yet sophisticated frame emanate an aura of power and intimidation. The gun weighs in at a hefty 53 oz. and the black rubber grips help it sit comfortably in your hands, although folk with smaller hands might find it a bit awkward to handle. The blued finish is beautiful, the dark polished steel giving it a more menacing look than the stainless steel finish, with the only downside being fingerprints and oils are more visible.
Upon firing the Bull, I was surprised that the recoil was not as heavy as I expected. This can probably be attributed to the weight of the gun, as well as the excellent porting that the barrel has. I was able to fire accurate groupings of about 2” at 20 yards, although the recoil is still significant enough to give you slight muscle soreness in your arms and shoulder.
The gun comes with a life time no questions asked warranty from Taurus, and I have heard very good things about their customer service.
All in all, this is a great looking and shooting gun, at a decent price. If you can afford the large caliber ammo, or just want to feel like a Vin Diesel in a giant mech suit of ass-kicking, then pick this revolver up and you will definitely get your moneys worth.
