I actually like it. If it were consigned at my LGS, and the price was reasonable, it would come home with me. If I want to shoot frame-stretching, HVAP 44 Magnums, thats when I pull out the Super Redhawk. I would take a different approach and load 300gr+ bullets at about 800 fps. Like a Victory Model with 38-200's, but on steroids. You would still know that you were shooting a significant handgun, but I believe that it would be controllable, even in an L-Frame.
