Held one at a local store a few times and liked it. Not sure how they shoot. Price was about $760, how is that?

P.S., I had a 5.5" Super Blackhawk, and couldn't hit worth a darn with it.

I'd sooner look for a used older model before shelling out $800 for a Ruger.

I have one in 45 colt and I won't let it go.

My 4 inch RedHawk is a fine revolver....bought it when they first came out.

I have a 4 inch S&W 29-2. Wish I had gotten a 6 inch but the price was a steal. I think in a 44 a 6-8 inch shoots better.

I have the 4.2" Redhawk in 45 Colt. Nice gun for more serious woods carry, a little heavy otherwise.

Depending what you're going to use it for, take a look at a GP100 with a 4" barrel. Very accurate shooter and priced below $600......

I like my 5.5" Redhawk, and I'm not a fan of really short barrel .44 Magnums. The shortest barrel I have is the 4-5/8" SuperRedhawk. It doesn't feel any more portable than the 5.5" Redhawk.

I got one in 45 when they first came out. I like it.

Get a longer barrel, I recommend 7.5"

I'd like one. I had a 3" S&W 629 44 magnum and loved it. I like short barrel 44 mags.

Depending what you're going to use it for,.....

Exactly that. Are you going to hunt with it? Target shoot? Or carry it for protection against animals that want to eat or trample you?

A longer barrel for hunting & target shooting, and a shorter barrel for protection.
