P22 update

EvilGenius- thanks for the heads-up on the P22 Bible

I love this little pistol. I'm lucky enough to live where I can go out in the backyard and shoot at will, and this thing is more fun than a barrel full of monkeys.

My other handgun is a GP100 in .357 mag, and as much as I like it, the cost of shooting takes a lot of the fun out of it- every time I squeeze, I can't help thinking "wow, this is gonna cost me 40 cents, better make it count..."

The .22, however, is a total hoot- I can spend $50 in an hour thru the .357, but I couldn't spend $50 in a whole day with the .22. I don't feel stupid shooting at cans, old books, CD's, etc.... Plus, the wifey even likes shooting it, which a plus.

I've put about 1,000 rounds thru it in less than a month- I figure at 5 cents a round vs. $.40 thru the Ruger, it has already paid for itself

So...

Super Blackhawk SA with the 7.5in barrel in .44


or

Redhawk DA with the 7.5in Barrel in .44


I have an Alaskan in .44 and a Blackhawk in .357 and love them both.. So now I want a long(er) barrel .44 and am completely torn..

Thoughts?

I hate shooting SBH's. That stupid squared off pointy trigger guard is brutal on my knuckles and the single action grip frame is terrible for stiff loaded .44's.

If you're limiting yourself to Ruger's, Redhawk all the way.

What was pictured above is the old style RSB. The newer model has a nice rounded trigger guard which doesn't mash your knuckles. This is the one I have:

Redhawks have a bit longer cylinder, allowing bigger loads with longer OALs for reloading.

I've shot a 42 and it had no electrical effect on my rectum whatsoever. It was terrific fun though, as is any full auto event on someone elses dime.

I have a 3 screw SBH 7.5". Beautiful revolver, in very nice condition, very accurate, and I hate shooting it. Square trigger guard kills me. Blackhawks with the round guard and the slightly different (non-Dragoon style) grips are more comfy.

Mine's too nice to sell, but I'd rather have a Redhawk.

Glad to hear it's working out so well!!




At some point I'd like to pick up one of those P22/PK380 combo kits.

Yup- love the little .22's
Bought a Sig Mosquito 2 years ago or so for the same reasons. Have noticed my (pistol) shooting has improved as well (likely due to volume/trigger control).
