      Because I've been there and done that. Always looking for a new challenge. Took a doe a few years back with my .44 Mag. Set out to accomplish the job with open sights because I had not yet done it. I found the worst part about hunting with a revolver is cocking the hammer in the dead silence of the woods. To me it sounded like I was banging on metal pipes with a drilling hammer.

      Best of success in your hunts!

      While I have a few other makes, Ruger is by far and away my favorite.

      I like the S&W action but like the ruger balance and durabilty and looks better. Plus I feel you get more for your money and if you have problem Ruger takes good care of you. I would never buy a used S&W but I would buy a used Ruger.

      I only have one right now. A SP101. I hope to add a GP100 and a few others though. I do enjoy the SP101. It is very rugged a good shooter and easy to carry. Can't ask for much more.

      I been through a lot of wheel guns over the years and you can't beat Colt Pytons & Rugers. The Ruger, Gp, SP, and Redhawks will get the job done for a life time and then some. I carry a SP101 2 1/4" Barell everyday. Fact I got it on right now. Young guys down at the range say well you only got 5 shots. Well most gun fights are over in less than that but I do carry 5rds of back up. Hope this picture takes.

      Ruger Redhawk and GP-100 3" here.

      I recently got the GP-100 back from the local gun plumber; I had him grit-blast it to clean-up the dents and dings from the previous owner (a Canadian PD, I believe) and reduce the shine, as I plan to use it as an outdoors companion this year:






      Roughed-up-to-dull-the-surface-shine grip panel inserts from an SP-101 complete the package.
      I simply MUST do something about that grip screw and insert; WAY too reflective for this gun, now.

      dj niner,

      I just picked up one of those Canadian Police Guns reimported by CAI. Mine however is DAO. The hammer spur is gone and there is a small 1/4" patch at the top of the hammer that is checkered. I have not had the chance to shoot it yet but I am really looking forward to doing so very soon. I usually bead blast my stainless guns to give them a matte finish, but I really like the way yours looks. Very rough country, hard use look.

      Here my latest invention. I took an extra stainless 5.5" Redhawk, in my favorite caliber....the 41 Remington Magnum and cut the barrel to 4" for ease of carry when hunting. I dehorned the whole gun, did some light trigger component polishing and reworked the grip frame and grips. I really like the end result.

      That's the nicest-looking Redhawk I've ever seen, bar none. I much prefer the front sight with base you used, over the plain blade on the new 4" factory Redhawks; it's just hanging out there like a sailboat sail, waiting to get knocked off or bent. Same for the front sight on the Alaskans.

      I do want to try the new Hogue grips used on the factory 4" Redhawk; they look like they might work well for me (although I like the looks of nice wood grips, i generally prefer synthetic grips for actual use with magnum loads).
