    I want the Talo Super BlackHawk 3 3/4 barrel but I know the 4 5/8 will use 44Mag round more effeciently with a diff of less than 100fps etc...would buy both but dog house is not to comfortable. (not a hunter..for SD in woods only, hopefully not Grizz woods) and am already waiting on DW CCO from Severns. :confused::confused: Help

    It sounds like the real question you have is. What's the difference in recoil ?
    Obviously the shorter barrel will be slightly easier to conceal and I personally wouldn't worry about 100 fps. Accuracy probably won't be very different between the two either.

    Recoil not a problem maybe accuracy and which would be the more wise purchase..I have a 3" S&W696 and a 4" 651 and just seem to like the 4" and less barrels...had 2 Redhawk 8" which I didn't care for but the 5/8" is not going to be a deal breaker....guess I better get the 3 3/4 while I can>
    Thanks but been know to think out these things to long and lose out on the gun that I want.

    The 4 5/8" barrel Ruger Single Actions are the shortest barrel length practical for positive ejection of fired cartridges, and even these in heavy .44 and .45 loadings tend to require plucking the case the rest of the way out with the fingers. Shorter lengths will present the fired case to your fingers, but you'll still have to pluck them out. For a round or two this is O.K. but if you shoot several hundred rounds at a range session, it gets tedious.

    (I'm not implying longer barrels are any easier, the ejector doesn't get any longer, unless you get one of those silhouette models with the long ejector.)

    With all due respect this gun prob won't be a range gun so prob wont be a problem unless I cant put down the critter in the first 6 shots in which case the 7/8's extra barrel prob would not do me anygood....just a thught:eek:

    I always figured I'd want to reload before going home.

    Barrel length makes little difference in a Grizz attack. The position of the holster is more important than the barrel of your handgun. The bear attack will be fast and mostly unexpected. You will most likely be very close againsit the bears body in the last moments. Being able to accesss the gun high in front of your body will be your best advantage.
    In the 4 cases where I knew the victims the gun was fired pressed agansit the bears body. The short barrel would have the advantage.;)
