Default Ruger thinking?

I was at Sportsman's Warehouse the other day and they had a Ruger Super Redhawk on the wall for $700 and some change. This is a .44 Mag. 9.50" barrel 15.00 overall!

Any thoughts?

I told the wife it is a revolver and not a semi-auto (which she hates).

A bit too expensive...

Thats about what they are going for here in my area for new ones. I picked up this one slightly used for around 600. with some ammo included. Its a very accurate 44 mag and handles recoil well.

I subscribe to the notion it is worth whatever you are willing to pay for it. If you like it, go for it.

Thats a BIG damn gun, but I'll bet its pretty.

There's no way that my little hands will wrap around that beast, so I wouldn't even look twice at it. I think you could probably get a better price on it though. Aren't the Super Blackhawks retailing for in the $500 mark? If you really like the gun, shop around and compare prices. Thats how I try to make sure I get the best deal. Chances are, it isn't the only one in existance... Someone else is bound to have it somewhere.

I'll bet it would be a plast to take to the range though. I'd imagine pretty accurate too

You cannot go wrong with a Ruger. I have owned several of them; Blackhawk, Mini 14, GP 100, SP 101, and 10/22. I had no trouble with any of them with thousands of rounds shot out of each. They are rugged, take abuse without problems, and continue to be more accurate than this old shot.

Found the New Vaquero .44 with a 7.5" barrel on gunbroker.com for $400 shipped. You'll never know what kind of deals you stumble across until you look.

This toy is new from Sportsman's Warehouse, compared to used on Gun Broker! I known others that have had excellent / new purchases from Gun Broker; however, I prefer local. Gun Broker is like ebay, I have been burned before on ebay.

I have the Ruger GP100 in Stainless Steel 6" and love it! It is tied with the Glock 19 model!

Still thinking, not letting the wife known - she will stake a claim to it!

Any thoughts on what sort of fore-stock you'll put on that? I have golf clubs shorter than that barrel!
