    Mine is a Model 83 with a 4.75" barrel. I've since changed the express sights out for the standard set (couldn't get used to the sight picture wish someone made a set of McGiverns for it). It's a great gun for sure.

    Depends on where I would be going, and if I was carring a long arm. Either a Ruger MK1 in .22 or a Colt Trooper MKIII in .357 mag (6' bbl on the Colt, 4 3/4 on the Ruger)

    FA M-97 4 1/4" .44 SPL or a 4" S&W 629, both in a chest rig or in my pack depending on where I am. Both are powerful, take snake shot, are SS, and are accurate.

    My favorite woods pistol was a Ruger Mk II, which I no longer have.

    My favorite woods revolver is my Ruger Single-Six. (still have this one)



    I have always loved the Western Single-Action revolver. Just a die hard Lone Ranger and Wild Bill Hickok fan, I guess! Besides, I like the way they feel in the hand and the way they shoot. They're unlike any other handgun.

    This is what I call my multi purpose gun. The 686 serves my needs for hunting, Plinking, home def. bush whacking and camp partner. She hits hard with a recoil easily managed, and 38s are a blast to shoot all day long.

    My woods pistol is a taurus 94 stainless 2" barrel small enough to carry all day minute of squirrel @ 50 ft teamed with a H&R single shot shotgun if I am more in the hunting mood it works for me

    I'm not complicated. My 45's do the trick for anything I need to shoot. They ride on my right hip daily in 3,4, & 5" variants. The weather, and clothing choices generally make the difference in what I carry. But when I'm in the bush my 5" is normally my partner for the trip.

    Weight on my carry sidearm is a non issue for me, but I carry every day on duty and am used to it. I enjoy the accuracy I get out of the 5" 1911 and the natural "point" I experience with it. I don't often encounter two legged predators in the bush, but if I did...

    Anyway I'm getting long winded. It's my fav bush gun because I trust it. Because I have time on the gun. And because it just "feels right."

    Hickory Stick, the M97 comes with 4 1/4", 5 1/2", and 7 1/2" bbls.
    Mine has a 4 1/4" and is chambered for 45 Colt. I load it very hot with 300gr. hard cast SWC's over a stiff load of W296.
