So let's talk about bear guns for moment. I've had my heart set on a Ruger Redhawk for a long time, but today was the first time I actually held one. That. Grip. Sucks. (4" model w/ rubber grip) Trigger pull was smooth but heavy, even in SA. Then I handled a S&W 629, complete with Hillary Hole. The grip fit better and more comfortable. The trigger was lighter, smoother, and crisper, and the gun was lighter overall. Then I handled a Blackhawk. I liked that grip the best, and the trigger was the best, too, but I can't imagine trying to reload that thing in a hurry. What to do? What to do? I was set on the Ruger for its reputation of longevity and reliability. (I plan to shoot either hot handloads w/ 312 grn WFN or HSM Bear Loads w/ 310 grn lead WFN-same ammo I shoot in my rifle.) After actually holding one, it doesn't seem a good fit. I'm afraid it would be pretty difficult to control.
