Go with the RSR 7.5" Sweet gun but you better think about putting on a different grip. The grip that come on withit doesn't help the recoil she can put out.

I've owned both and they are too heavy to lug around all day, I switched to a S/W 629 6in barrel in .44 mag, I use a modified nylon shoulder holster and can carry all day and not notice the weight. The only way I would up the caliber is if I were in grizzly or brown bear country, the .44 will kill anything you've mentioned easily, I've taken pigs/deer/coyotes with mine

Any one have the Alaskan in 44 mag, or just get regular length pistol.

Consider the Taurus .44 with the ported barrel. I looked at it last year, but as I already have a Ruger Vaquaro in .44; I decided I really didn't need it.
