Alright guys, I'm looking for a good double action .44 to replace my old woods carry gun. The gun in question is a Ruger Vaquero in .45 LC with a 4 5/8 barrel. My criteria for replacing it are the fact that it does not shoot to point of aim past 15 yards. I really got my eyes opened last season after my rifle had a case malfunction and failed to extract. Which left me with a jammed rifle and a 180 class buck at 80 yards looking at me. My idea of a woods carry gun is a heavy caliber revolver small enoough for hip carry and accurate enough to take game at around 75 yards if the need arises. So the mission so to speak of this handgun would be finishing shots on game, general self defense against both 2 & 4 legged varmints, and finally to use as a backup gun in the event that my rifle jams or becomes unusable. I have a Ruger Super Blackhawk in .44 Mag with a 7.5 inch barrel and while it is accurate enough to do what I want it is also entirely too big for hip carry and I really dont want to carry in a shoulder holster. My preferred hunting load is a 240 grain JHP handload at around 1400 FPS, and my plinking load is a 240 grain LRN at about 1000 FPS. Neither are in my opinion extremely hot loads that would cause excessive wear to the pistol. After looking at the options and shooting some friends guns I've narrowed it down to the following models. Ruger RedHawk 4.2 inch Ruger RedHawk 5.5 inch S&W 629 5 inch Or buy one of these carry the BlackHawk and hush? What does Glocktalk say?
