If a man has good eyes and a lot of practice, he can shoot an aperture sight as well as a scope -- or so they tell me.
Have you considered an M198 155mm howitzer? :-)
I'd like to see:
A lightened version of the Ruger Redhawk (similar to the "new" Blackhawk) in .45 Colt
A reissue of the Colt Anaconda in .45 Colt...
