I ordered the Alaskan anyway, hoping to get a decent woods gun for camping, something for wild hogs and black bears if ever needed. When I received the Alaskan I found it to be fairly heavy, but not extremely large. Physically it would easily satisfy my needs for a woods gun.
I took it out to fire the first rounds through it, fully prepared that this may in fact be my last day on earth, given some of the comment I had read from reviewers. I slowly and steadily squeezed the trigger fully expecting a miniature nuclear blast to occur, wiping out all around it. Would I survive?
The Alaskan 44 is pretty much a kitten when fired, even with stout loads. Seriously, the recoil is very, very mild compared to what I was led to believe. If you've ever fired .357 rounds from a J-frame you'll find the Alaskan 44 to be very mild by comparison. I found there to be very little muzzle flip, the weight of the gun and the Hogue grips seemed to absorb most of the recoil
I am thrilled with the Alaskan 44. It seems that I have found an ideal woods gun for the times that I don't or can't carry a rifle. It seems to be very solid, handles stout loads very well, and should serve me for the remainder of my days.
I cannot recommend the Alaskan 44 enough to someone who is looking for such a handgun. I also can highly recommend Grabagun.com, their service was excellent as always.
