My Smith model 57 4” has the best DA trigger of all my revolvers, and is dead stock from the factory. Next running a very close second is my GP100 after I did a trigger job. The only issue I have with the Ruger is the false reset, normally it doesn’t bother unless I’ve been shooting a lot of semi 9mm’s and have gotten used to riding their short resets. For this reason I’d stay away from the Redhawk, at least to my understanding it’s the same trigger setup as the GP, and I certainly wouldn’t want to get caught with a false reset in DA if a bear was attacking me. Now, that being said I don’t have any direct experience with a Redhawk it’s just what I’ve learned through research.

I voted for the 29/629 in a Diamond D Chest Rig. I would recommend a 5" Barrel with heavy hard cast bullets. The Redhawk is just too heavy. I've been carrying a 5.5 Bisley in 45 Colt in this rig for many years. With 285gr RCBS hardcast bullets at 1060fps, penetration is measured in feet.
Reloading For: 223R, 243W, 6.5 GR, 6.5 CM, 260R, 6.5-06, 280R, 7mmRM, 300HAM'R, 308W, 30-06, 338-06, 9mm, 357M, 41M, 44SPL, 44M, 45 ACP, 45 Colt, 450BM.

It's a fantasy scenario.

Since you're going to carry bear spray anyway, if it doesn't work, you're done.

I bet bear spray is statistically more effective than ANY gun at bear deterrant.
