Talked to a club member at the range, walked away with another 44 Magnum

I met a nice retired gentleman at the range. He saw my 44 Magnum, and said, "I can't hold mine very long anymore."

My friend said, "Well this guy loves to shoot these kind of guns."

"I can give you a great deal on one if you're interested."

"Absolutely. What model?"

"It's a Ruger with a long long barrel."

I met up with him today. Needless to say, I came home with the longest 44 Magnum in my armory. 9.5" Ruger Super Redhawk 44 Magnum. 58 oz.

I only put 6 rounds through it since it was raining, and I don't like scopes on my revolvers. It felt like a 38+P.



Here it is....

That's sweet. Is your grip screw coming loose?

Don't take the scope off it, that is anice combo.

Great eye!

I loosened it because I checked the underbelly for rust. Then I took a pic before I tightened it.

The SRH is my .44 Mag for heavy reloads, it is a quite hefty revolver. I put Nills on it.

I had an identical twin to that minus the scope. Brings back good memories. Wish I'd never got rid of it.

I love my SRH with the 9.5 inch barrel I can hold 4 inch groups with my red dot at 100 yards with it. Shooting 240 grain xtps over 21 grains of 2400 is a piece of cake.also not a fan of scopes on a handgun..

I added a spare red dot onto my latest acquisition, a Ruger Super Redhawk 44 Magnum.
