I have nothing against Glocks, but I don't feel the need to switch over to a gun with such a completely different feel and balance in the hand for the sake of more capacity, not at this point in my life. Might feel, differently, if we lived in a higher crime area, but that's not our reality, here. I'm perfectly comfortable with the idea of having to do a mag switch when I might need more capacity. Again, it's the confidence thing for me. At my age, I'm reluctant to take on a whole different gun platform, even though the Glock makes a ton of sense.

Thanks. It's really one of my all time favorite 44 mags and I've owned a bunch of different ones. The Bisley grip makes the gun for me. I can shoot 44 mag loads in it that would instantly lock up a Smith and still do it without drawing blood. Great trigger and very accurate to boot.

I had to post this pic . I can carry Glock 23C loaded with 13 rds and carry a extra mag with 13 rds and the Glock with 26 rds only weights only 42.0 ozs and the Ruger Sheriff model weights 42.0 ozs loaded with 6 rds .

ncg I love the wood grips on your 7 1/2 Super Blackhawk. The wood grain with that stain is really beautiful. Pretty as artwork.

Thanks. I think all SA revolvers are beautiful, of course. Just their nature.

Also, at the risk of sounding like an old fool, I would not be afraid to use one in a shootout, if it came to that. Not my first choice, but still doable. Have no problem, whatsoever, using an SA revolver as a woods gun for protection against toothy critters. Most of my woods guns are, in fact, SAs. An SA revolver isn't the antique some think it is.

You got me on that one, Ridge. I was appalled that someone would do such a thing to a 1911.

I shoot a SA revolver faster and more accurate then my 1911 , Glocks or DA S&W .I guess 16 yrs doing the Cowboy action stuff really help . The problem is only 6 shot , very heavy and hard to hide . The 3 time I need a gun in my life . Street gang in Philly of 6 + bad guys , 4 drunk indians in the back country of Ca and 12 + 1% bikers in Globe Az . That is why I carry a 13 shot Glock with 13 rd extra mag and not my Ruger 44-40 sheriff model I made .

Can't argue with that, but I have yet to encounter more than one bear at a time.

With the new Ruger American that just was announced I may go over to the dark side when I'm convinced the production models are working well. It will be made in 45 ACP which is a caliber I prefer for "social work". It will also be made in 9MM which I will leave for those that prefer that caliber.

I'm with you on the 45, Terry. Oh, I'm sure the 9mm can do it all, but I'm hooked on that reassuring thunk I get when I shoot the 45. Has a recoil all its own.
