Thread: New toy.... Super Redhawk
Not going to carry this one concealed!
I had one of these years ago, when they first came out. Wish I still had it.
Upside is, this one comes with rings for a scope, and I still have my leather for it.
Still have my .44 mold. Guess it's time to get busy makin' bullets!
Makes me think of Dirty Harry

Is this one of those new stealth guns?
I've always liked Ruger's revolvers.
Grats on the new acquisition.
First time out shooting it today:
The Uncle Mike's rubber grips that came with it leave my middle finger too close to the trigger guard. Every time I shoot a full house load it whacks my finger.
Shot at a variety of targets, but most fun was a 20oz pop bottle full of water. It exploded such that it knocked all the other targets off the 4X4 used as a base!
I think I'll use it for bear come August.... :celebrate
Probably not going to happen for awhile, but at some point in time I want a Redhawk in .44Mag with a 4" or so barrel. Nice Gun!
I'm considering picking up a .357 or .44 mag for the woods this summer, maybe something like a S&W686, basic to the point, wish I could get something like a Pyton but thats too nice for hiking
Those wood on rubber grips are handsome, to bad Ruger doesn't use them on the gp100 anymore. That being said, that is the only handsome thing on that gun. That thing is butt ugly, but I bet the frame and barrel will withstand years and years of .44 magnum punishment.

I Agree, Super Redhawks are not as Good Looking as the regular Redhawk, but both are Built like the proverbial Brick Outhouse and some reloading manuals have Ruger Only Sections in them. Good Choice Hammer, enjoy and be safe always.

I've owned a "dirty Harry" Ruger Super Blackhawk in an 8" barrel for several years. Mine is topped with a bushnell 4x scope. Have it in a sidekick holster under the left arm and usually oc during hunting season. Been in several s.e.Id. convenience stores for gas and other locations with no problems. I would seriously not consider carrying this peice for any length of time anywhere but in the field since it's such a massive weapon butI can tell you it does make quite a presence in public. People will notice when you pack a Ruger 44!
I put a 2x Leopold scope on my Super Redhawk 7 1/2 " barrel. I shot a deer with it...and that was all it took. It is easier to carry around in the woods than a rifle; especially with an Uncle Mikes shoulder holster.
