ruger black hawk 357/9mm

Are they a good gun? I would assume so since they are a ruger. I would love to get a 9mm revolver since i have the stuff to reload it.

I have one and it's a great gun. Very accurate, although I've never shot it for accuracy with 9mm. If you get one get stuff to reload 357 too.

I do have the 357 - 9 convertable, to tell the truth it stays in 9mm all the time as I have 2 ruger 357s that dont convert. I reload and use a 125grain 358 RNL bullet as the barrel is 357. I put them in the 9mm shells and thats not a problem, gun is very accurate using the 358 bullets. A 9mm bullet is 356 and I've had them tumble when used in my convertable, the 358 bullets never tumble and are better shooters. The gun is a sweetheart to use, I don't keep track of how much ammo I've put thru it but I shoot it once a week and usually throw 150 rounds down range and I've had it a few years. Charlie

My .357 Cylinder shoots a lot more accurately than the 9mm cyl.

I have had one for years. My son loves mine but I wasn't quite ready to pass it down! Bought him a used one for Christmas and he is thrilled.
