    I owned a .44 Ruger Blackhawk years ago. One heck of a pistol! Loved it. I could almost hear Clint Eastwood's voice every time I torched off that bad boy. "Do you feel lucky punk?"

      44 mag will surely make you sit up and take notice!
      You should give this one a try in a 45/70!

          I hear you! It is a big boy! I have always wanted one, would never pay the money, but ran onto a good deal and did some ammo trading to get it.

            .44s are a hoot, I've got 3 of them. Far and away my favorite handgun cartridge.

            You need to try my .500 magnum with some 500 grain loads. It has a 4 inch barrel, makes it easier to carry.

            The revolver in the middle of the picture is a ,44 magnum, the little fella on the bottom of the picture is a .357 magnum.

                    Rick, I used to have one of those myself. A very nice pistol, but not so practical for concealed carry LOL. I would think that will make for a good hog gun.

                        Jeff, they are sure good looking. Makes even my wrist twinge thinking about firing them. Nice collecting for sure.

                          Hey, never thought about checking there. I had heard that Fleabay is a no gun at all place. I will go look.

                            You need this one, for weekly practice. Cheap, highly accurate and with a few changes and trigger work it is super accurate. Sure saves on that ammo bill and you can take a 500 round box of .22 and play with it all day. Then when you pick up that .44 you only have to shoot a few rounds to be in practice for a Bar'

                            I have one of those Thompson Center Contenders also in .35 Remington. Do not, do not shoot a groundhog inside a barn with it ,the sound will bounce of the metal roof and your ears will ring for two hours. Lol!

                              A Contender in a35 Remington is a beast! Did yours have a muzzle brake? If it didn't, then you haven't heard loud yet!

                                No it does not have a muzzle brake, just the weapon and I had the trigger and sear chromed to lighten the trigger pull. It has a Nikon 2X scope on high rings so the standard iron sights can also be used. That was very important for the purpose I had it for at the time. Those were custom made also. I used to carry it in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho sometime as I used to trout fish a lot. I had it in case a bear decided to include me in the menu.
                                Had a few of them Woof at me but none of them ever tried to eat me. Was easier to carry than a rifle, but still a bit heavy even in the shoulder holster. I still shoot it once in awhile, especially if I have a pumpkin or watermelon around. Lol!

                                  Rick, I had a Ruger Redhawk like that. I see it has been Magnaported to help reduce muzzle jump. That's the first thing I had done to mine. I also had a trigger job done on it to give it a lighter, smoother pull and I installed Pachmayr grips. A buddy of mine did all my reloading so practicing didn't cost too much. It's a sweet shooting revolver.

                                    Got one! I had a Red Dot on it for awhile, but am looking for a short something with some magnification! Eyes are getting older! LOL!! I also like shooting the Ruger MKII Bull Barrel 22 as well, it is very accurate as well. We shoot a lot of 22, in fact I just bought a bulk order of 100k rounds of 22 long rifle two days ago, I split it with a fellow shooter. We both wanted to make sure that we did not run out for out grandkids to shoot with.

                                      Go for the gusto, convert your Glock 21 to a 50 caliber. Click on photo to view story.
                                      As I watch the large, brass casing fly through the air I hear the loud "PONG!" of the 300-grain .50 caliber bullet slamming into the target 75 yards away....That's right! I said .50 caliber.
