While at the Mid Atlantic Winter meet, there was much philosophizing. One topic I brought up was the merits of different calibers in the ruger Blackhawk, and it was largely decided that for my needs, a 44 magnum or 41 magnum would get the job done. I left the meet with the idea that if one came along, I would try and pick it up. Only the next day I was out looking for ammunition when I came across a stainless steel Super Blackhawk in 44 magnum with a 7.5" barrel used at a local sporting goods shop. Once my wait period is over, I'll let you know how she shoots.
