    Default Ruger Super Blackhawk

    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.

    You done good my friend; and it certainly would have been my choice between the two calibers and barrel configuration.

    Though I prefer my 4" - 5.5" barrels, I do have a .44 Bisley Hunter (BlackHawk with Bisley grip frame) that has a 7.5 inch pipe. Built like a dang tank, and puts the bullets right where the sights "say" they ought to be - on time - every time. Great pistol!

    You made a good choice IMO!

    I only paid $400 for it, so there was plenty of money left for more ammo. I realized a year or so ago that I had all these children and nothing to feed them, so I have been trying to spend more money on ammo. The only problem is I keep getting more and more calibers!

    Have you ever fed a new 45-70 lever gun? It ain't cheap!

    Good Luck, it's a great handgun. I have had the same one for 20 years. I had mine shortened to 5 inches and Magnaported. It was an idea I got from reading an article on how Hank Williams customized his Super Blackhawk. I also put black packmyer grips on. When walking in bear country I load with Federal Premium solid hunting loads.
