    1858-I have a chance to pick up a Redhawk in .45LC (4") or one in .44Mag (7.5") ....I've owned one identical to the .44 (several years ago)....but I'm really wanting the shorter barrel.....how do you like your Redhawk in .45 (not the Alaskan)?

    Have only one

    coming, the rest are Smiths, one Taurus. Alaskan might be hard to sell if I ever need to, but I really doubt I would ever try to sell it.

    I own a 4" Redhawk in .45 Colt. It's got a rather generous grip suited to someone with the hands of the Hulk, but it does have a decent trigger. Decent DA pull, kinda heavy SA pull, but with a nice, clean break. It'll handle everything from my standard 255 gr/900 ft/sec lead loads, to my favorite 335 gr/1050 - 1100 ft/sec loads to COR-BON 300 grain / 1300 ft/sec loads. For being a giant hunk of stainless steel, the shorter barrel lets it balance very nicely.

    The SP101's a great carry, so is the LCR, but I gotta go with my blackhawks.

    Thanks, EnsignJimmy! Do you carry it at all (backpacking, trailwalking, hunting)? Or is it a range gun for you?

    I agree with your comments except the bit about grip only being suitable for the Hulk. My hands measure 7-3/4" from the heel of my palm to the end of my middle finger and I find the grip to be perfect. I do have large palms in that my middle finger (3-1/4") is shorter than the length of my palm.

    victory model, the Redhawk in .45 Colt is my favorite Ruger revolver and to be honest, I like it as much as my Colt Python. I chose the Alaskan in the poll because it's unique, not necessarily because it's my favorite. Thank goodness we don't have to choose one!

    :)

    None of the above

    Sorry, I sold my Rugers. I had a Mk 11 and a Blackhawk. They shot well and I never had a problem with them.
    I just can’t get enthused about them. They seemed (felt) unfinished to me. It’s hard to explain.
    I guess I am just a Smith & Wesson fan.

    It's so hard to choose.

    I love my Blackhawks, my Super Blackhawk, my Alaskan, my Mark II, my Mark III, my SP101, I love all my Rugers.

    If I could only have one? I guess my Super Blackhawk stainless 44 magnum.

    Good thing I don't have to choose...

    I chose the Redhawk in .45 colt with a 4" barrel. It carries nice and can go from cowboy to Casull levels of power (well, near enough anyways).

    I just put a deposit on a GP100 because it fits my hand perfectly (old style grips). My father has a 4" Redhawk which has very little recoil for a 44 mag but I don't have Hulk hands so the grip is too big for me. I can shoot it fine but not preferred gun.
