    3.75'' Super Blackhawk

    Picked up my new 3.75'' super black hawk from the ffl today during my lunch break. I debated myself between this, a 3.75'' vaquero birds head .44, and a smith and wesson 3'' 629 deluxe. Narrowed it down to the 2 rugers, and decided to go with the super blackhawk for the adjustable sights as I might take this into the deer woods. Haven't done a thing to it other than open the box. Fit and finish is good, and everything is tight. Got a hodgepodge of leftover factory loads and some handloads I made for my super redhawk. Hopefully I can get out into the sticks at some point this weekend and abuse some steel.

    Nice, that's what I call a "crime stopper".

    Nice. I opted for the "Birds Head Vaquero" in 45 L.C. when I went shopping for a "stubby powerhouse". You are going to love it I'm sure!

    Yes, I came real close to going that way. Love the look of those things. I may yet get one just for working over steel plates.

    Honestly I haven't shopped much for holsters yet. I'm thinking I might want a cross draw of some sort.

    I had a .357 BH with a 4-5/8 barrel and I could miss the sky with it, shooting straight up. I sold it and bought the .41 Mag BH with a 6-1/2 barrel and shot it probably the best I have ever shot a handgun. Go figure. I miss that .41.

    I've got one coming from James over at @NelsonHolsters for my Cimarron 1858 Remington New Army. I'll post pics when it gets here. It's going to go with this one.

    Enjoy it. Mine has a little more barrel and will definitely draw attention in a closed range. It's a BLAST, literally.

    I'm still using the same holster but on a cartridge belt now. The rounds are Hornady's 225g FTX.

    Very nice! I will always enjoy seeing Ruger revolvers showing up on this forum. Especially big bores.

    I personally like to collect "woods guns" as an excuse to keep picking up revolvers (a hobby I intend to get more serious about once I'm no longer a poor student) and that exact Ruger is on my list. Not at the top but not at the bottom either.
