I am partial to the single actions because I know it's difficult to tear a S/A up. Since you have your mind set on a longer barrel I would go with the S/A. Really, I would buy the best pistol you can afford. You won't live long enough to regret it.

Get the Blackhawk. Carryed a Blackhawk .357 for a long time and it was tough, and accurate. I like to .44 magnum but mine was a shorter barrel and I liked the longer barrel of the my .357.

I have both and the Redhawk is more versatile. Hunting and Range? Either will suffice. Hiking, SD, HD? The Redhawk is the better choice.

So basically, the Redhawk will do everything the Blackhawk will do and more.

For a hunting handgun get the red hawk or super red hawk with a 7.5" barrelas it is set up for a scope down the road. Plus the extra weight is nice for the hotter rounds that it can handle. You are buying a handgun to pass along to your children so make it count with a model that easier to shoot for anyone. A hog blasting buy at 5 feet or a deer that just appears under your stand as they tend to do may not allow for the trigger to be cocked. I started revolver hunted in 1976 and never wanted for a sa trigger.

Given the choice id choose redhawk, because they are sa/da, whereas the blackhawk is sa only.

At this point, you really should buy them both.
I have the New Model Super BlackHawk and love the trigger.
Never had to reload it fast.

Get the blackhawk it's way easier to carry. The redhawks are good guns but they're so damn heavy.
