    New range & woods gun

    I just picked up a Ruger Super Blackhawk in .44 Magnum with a 5.5” barrel

    Mostly for the range but will also serve as a woods gun.

    If guns kill people, then pencils misspell words, cars make people drive drunk, and spoons make people fat.

    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

    Good choice. A lot of fun to shoot. The rounds in the pics are 225gr FTX.

    Cool! I like those grips. Kind of wish my .41 mag. Blackhawk came with those. It's got the old somewhat lighter colored stocks. Got 2 other Super Blackhawks in .44 mag., but it's my .41 I really love.

    Nice!

    I've spent many hours in the woods with a Blackhawk as a companion.
    Don't carry it as often anymore since the incident with the meth lab way back in the woods. I tend to carry a full size 9mm when riding trails. The only time I carry the Blackhawk is when I'm hunting.

    Sweet!

    In all my years of handgun enthusiasm, I never quite got bitten by the single-action bug. Love my .44 Mags, and I'm very partial to the Ruger revolvers I've had, but they've all been DA's! Once in a while, though, a post like yours pops up and makes me wonder if maybe I should dip a toe in the SA waters!

    Only problem is, I'm sort of a Colt fanatic and if I should suddenly feel the need to start acquiring SAA's, that could get real expensive real fast!!!

    Appreciate the comments everyone. Never had a single action revolver before but I’m a huge Western movie fan so the Ruger is sort of a nostalgia throwback for me.

    Airslot, thank you for the link.

    I love my Super Blackhawks (.44's).

    No doubt in my mind that I'll end up with one in .41 Mag as well.

    That will be just dandy for tromping around the palmetto thickets of FL, if you come across a Piney Woods Rooter!

    That's a fantastic looking Blackhawk.

    I too am dipping my toes in the SA world for the first time and am waiting on delivery of my Blackhawk 44 SPL Flattop Stainless.

    Now you need a .44 magnum lever-action rifle to go with it.
