Looking to buy a .44 mag in the upcoming month but I am torn between purchasing the Blackhawk 7.5" or 10.5" or Redhawk 7.5" .44. I like the longer barrel models on Blackhawk models as well as the lower cost than the Redhawk. However, I like the fact that the Redhawks are double action. I plan on using the gun for hunting and shooting at the range. Any suggestions on which model and barrell lengths? All sugestions welcomed! Thanks
I've been pondering much the same. Except I am set on the 7.5" barrel. I'm leaning towards the Blackhawk due to cost and for hunting/target shooting the single action is more accurate. At least that is my experience with the .22 revolver that I own. Even though I'm in Illinois, I couldn't see using one as a carry piece which is where you would want/need the double action.
You m ight say I have a slight preference for the Super Blackhawk:
But buy the gun that suits you best. As has been pointed out, the Redhawk can be fired single action, and should be for hunting. In the single action the Redhawk has slightly faster lock time than a Blackhawk, but unless you're a far better shot than I, you can't tell the difference. And I'm a good shot.
Good point, but I am trying to justify spending 150 more than the Blackhawk for the Redhawk. I really like the Redhawk but if I am going to shot the gun in single action 95% of the time I am not sure I can justify the additional cost. Too many decisions
We really need to be able to like stuff on the app 'cause that is dang funny.
I'm gonna stop you right there, you just said an AR-15 is a high-powered rifle. It is obvious you don't know anything about guns and I shall ignore anything you say from this point on.
