Picked this up yesterday. I let the last two .44's slip through my hands at the local gun store, one being a Super Blackhawk Talo edition and the other a 7 1/2" barrel Redhawk. When I saw this one on the shelf I didn't hesitate. I wound up doing a straight swap trade for it with two other guns I had but never used. This is only the second double action pistol I have owned and right now it's my favorite...until the next one comes along.
