Default Ruger Super Redhawk

Well, this has been on my must list for a very very long time. I'm not normally a revolver person and only a few I care for. (Most being rugers). After doing the cowboy shooting thing I've grown a bit fond of my new vaqueros, my lgs had this nice new super redhawk in 44mag on the shelf. I couldn't resist.



Test fire date is 3/20/14 so its barely a month old.

Weather was cold and windy so hopefully next weekend I'll have a go with it. A good solid 44 has always been a vacancy in my shooting lineup. While it came with a really nice set of rings I don't think I'm going to scope it.

Very nice! I have a Super Blackhawk .44 MAG with a 10" barrel, and I just love it. I picked it up along with a .44 Henry Big Boy as a homecoming gift to myself after my second deployment about 7 years ago. I handload, so my costs in shooting this pair are pretty low, but I also recently began casting my own lead. I can't even begin to tell you how cool that has been. Here's some recent soft lead I put together before heading out to the range.

I roll my own cast bullets. Although its just .357 .452 and .458 and .54 rounball atm. Need to order a .430 mold for this gun.

Just got the cannon apart and noticed ruger laser engraved its inspection date on the frame. Very interesting thing I've never seen ruger do before

Jon, we feel for you. however to satisfy your needs you have plenty of time that you can caress it and hold it, you can also do cowboy role playing.....just make sure the wife isn't home
