I really like the Redhawk Hunter but it seems no one has them available. So now I am lending towards the Blackhawk hunter. Both guns are incredible looking and the reviews on both seems to be neck and neck.

What you need to do is to buy all of them (you will need to buy a couple of each in different barrel lengths) and then do some range testing to see which one suits you better, then sell the others once you figure out which one is the best.



(you are aware of the fact that you will love all of them for different reasons so selling them will be impossible, aren't you?

S.A. or D.A.
I rarely fire a revolver Double Action.
Always seem to cock the hammer,
seems more accurate.

Double action can be much faster than semi-auto and with practice you can be quite accurate at it. SA is no more accurate than DA, it is the shooter that determines accuracy. Just ask Jerry Miculek. http://www.bang-inc.com/

Either way, you'll want to make it yours.

This one replaces a rifle for a hunt that really is just a walk in the woods.

If you learned to shoot, shooting a single action you will have it cocked before you level it to fire. I even have my P95 cocked before I level it to fire. I thought the P95 was going to rip the skin off my thumb with the bobed hammer. I shot a fox Saturday with the P95. I don't know where this came from I cocked it with my left hand while trying to get the sights lined up on the running fox. Regardless one chicken killer is gone.

If the primary use for the gun is hunting, I'd go for the Super Blackhawk. Lighter weight, grip configuration makes shooting single-action more comfortable, and the Super Blackhawk is extremely strong and durable.

Well, buy 2 or 3 of each. That way you can't be wrong.
