    Yep.

    I prefer this one on my hip much more than the 5-1/2" Blackhawk I have...

    Like everything else, it's a tradeoff - shorter sight radius, lower velocities... I tend to think 4-5" barrels are the best compromise for backpacking / hiking / woods work in general.

    A heavy load of 300-gr hard cast .44 Mag will still thump like a mofo out of the short barrel SuperBlackhawk.

    I prefer it as my woods gun.

    I concur, but I mentioned the 5-5 1/2 length so it would have more purpose. For myself, need 5" minimum length to hunt deer in Ohio. The anniversary model had that length. Like my firearms to be multitaskers.

    I love my 7.5" SBH .44, but it's huge.

    I'm not opposed to any gun. But why do you want a single action wheel gun over your Glock 10mm for a woods gun?

    My 8 3/8" 29-2 is far too big for a woods gun, fun as hell to shoot though!
