WV, Thank God!
Another cheap(er) option for them as have already got a frame (note the WV phraseology) would be an Encore barrel or maybe a Contender (don't know if that's a safe option). The TCs would be only a little ooglier than the No.1.

Or buy the No1 in 44mag, that meets all the special state rules and 1/2 pound lighter and looks the part.

The .450 Bushmaster is the hot ticket here in lower Michigan. It seems everyone is buying Ruger Americans. They are cheap and accurate (and as elegant as a fence post). Without the brake, they are not pleasant to shoot; the butt is narrow and it feels like the pad is too soft and collapses.

That being said, that #1 is butt ugly! I would like to have have a #1 in .460 S&W which is also legal here; head space on the rim rather than mouth and higher max operating pressure.

The last .460 I saw on GB went for over $2k smile

I like the 460. No idea if it will be a long term success. There is nobody, other than S&W, in the revolver spaced that can make a gun for that or the 500. The 500 is rock solid suceess. The 460 is a little too much finesse for most. Now Michigan might give the 460 a boost too. The 460 seems a natural in a single shot. The 460 & 450 use the same bullets and there are some pointy options.

I also disliked how the 450 BM head spaces, but given the rules in Michigan, I understand why it would be popular. The 44mag is popular around here, where if longer range is needed just use the 7mm-08, etc. Under Michigan special rules the 6&7mm guns are not an option.
