    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.

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

    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.
