Years ago my father won a Ruger Redhawk 44 Mag in the Hunter Model which he never fired. Figuring he would never use it he decided to transfer it to me. This is my first handgun and I'm having trouble getting used to it. He had a box of Remmington UMC 44 Mag 180 Grain Jacketed Soft Point ammunition. I've put less than 30 rounds through the firearm - I find myself anticipating the recoil by pushing the muzzle down/forward. Possibly developing other bad habits. Its a nice revolver but not the one to have for a first handgun... I was thinking of changing out the stock rosewood grips and possibly using 44 S&W Special ammunition. Any suggestions grips and possible loads to use which will allow me to concentrate on shooting. Also, any other suggestions would be great. Thanks!
